skunkworks_ 16gkid, if you're salty about that eBay price, you're going to hate Dogfunk's price.

chomps1211 As it happen, I've got bindings onall three boards might return the new M Cartels, then I'd only set up n bring the two I really want to ride.
(...I hate dinking around n swapping bindings!)

I've read a good reveiw on it but it's hard to find specifics on the web.
Therere are a couple of sizes available right now on ebay for a pretty good price. 60% camber so I THINK it extends out past the inserts, i wouldnt call it soft at all but not overly stiff either maybe a 6/10. much easier to butter than my old board and it has flat tips. Edge to edge might be a hair slower than my camber board but still fast. I went 4cm longer than my old board but it doesnt really feel like it. Magnetraction is amazing since I ride in the midwest mansnow/ice. Im very glad I bought this board, just gotta get another board in opposite hybrid now to compare

a little salty because i paid about the same for the 2012 that these 2013 are going for now
2013 Rossignol Jibsaw Snowboard in Various Lengths | eBay

If you ride a 159 heres a 2012 at a stupid price
Rossignol Jibsaw Snowboard 159 cm with Magtek | eBay

I hope that helped a little.

But then i picked up a2012 rossignol jibsaw on close out two months ago and this board is amazing! rocker on the outside and camber in between seems like such a great compromise, doesnt seem too floaty like a rocker and can still put down a carve line close to a camber. plus with magnetraciton for the ice edge grip is awesome.
Havent caught a random edge since I got this board and im sold on hybrids, next purchase will be a board with camber out and rocker in between.

I picked up a stiff rocker-flat-rocker (coming from camber) and had the same experience. I pretty much retired my camber board, but I also rode a lot more pow this year despite the lean season.

Glad I am not the only one who hates it. I learned on a rocker which was probably the best choice for me and then I switched over to a trad camber and a much stiffer board and instantly my riding improved. My turns were sharper, I felt more stable at high speeds, overall I felt more in control. I tried to hop back on my old rocker and I felt more out of control, and I was trying to hit some chutes. I was able to do it just fine, but I didn't like it at all. All and all I decided to give the board to my cousin who has been riding a thrift store board. And if she grows out of it, I'll give it to my sister when she ready to learn how to snowboard. Its great for beginners in my opinion.

Ok, that's fair (and good news!). I've probably got some thinking and research to do in deciding what I have in the Anthem and what I might be looking for to "fill in the gaps" so to speak. Something a little more flexible and park friendly, maybe.

Given that I'd like to get better in the park and on natural features, and I'd like to learn to ride this magical powder (I've had one day of it, and it totally, totally kicked my ass, I don't see the big deal yet, but I've got hope), and I'd like to get better at moguls (which isn't saying much, because I suck at them now), it seems like I might be at a point where an additional board might make sense based on varying conditions or intent on any given day.

Or am I just rationalizing a possible case of Gear Acquisition Syndrome?
