well i got it and i really like it, don't have much to compare it with but i think it's really solid !
i often find myself thinking "oh crap that 180 was way off, i am really gonna eat it now!" but than the board just glides through it and i come out with all my bones still intact . I've only gotten a few days on it and still dialing it in but for a allmounten board its good, good in pow, groomers and everything that i throw at it. and i think its really fast but may be that's just because i had such a rubbish board before !
hope this helps

I bought a Rossi Circuit (2009) and had Rossi Viper bindings. I upgraded the bindings to Union Forces - The Vipers weren't that great. Easy entry, but they just loosened all the time when riding and felt cheap in general.

The Rossi Circuit is a good beginner board. I learned to snowboard this season and have ridden the Circuit about 7 trips (10 days total), but I learned how to carve and go down blues and blacks and even boardslide and butter with it. I learned the basics with this board, but I'm definitely looking to upgrade to a intermediate or a more "advanced" board.

But yeah, there might be better boards out there for you to learn on. Try sierra snowboard - their sierra reverse crew is like $240 and the Sierra Crew is $200. I'm thinking about buying the reverse crew.. which is essentially Burton's V-Rocker, but I just bought the Circuit and I would feel like a dumbass for buying 2 new boards in 1 season lol.

If you can wait for/afford the 2011 Rossi lineup, I suggest you go with the One Magtek. The '11 Angus has sick ass graphics, but it just wasn't nearly as fun as the '11 One Magtek. The biggest downside of the One Magtek is that it is really ugly. Very plain graphics lol.

The Angus was just mediocre in my opinion. It was better than the Taipan though. I could be biased though because I ride on a lot of ice and the One Magtek killed it.

I'm tempted by the sale pricing of the 09/10 One Mag, it's like getting a Mervin MTX board with a great core and base for cheap. But now knowing they're adding a rocker next year kinda kills that idea.

As for Rossi quality, I'm still very happy with my Travis Rice Pro 157mw from a few years ago.
