rossignol eq. in general
 
so i'm thinking of buying the rossignol angus, and i was wandering if rossignol boards are good in general. i don't ride in a good mountain so i wanna know if the edge is going to tear out on the first rock i hit.
and if you have any exp. with the angus i would love to hear about it

anyway, new here and pretty new to snowboarding,

get yourself somthing from their "made for rental" line i think they are basicly made of iron. lol

The reason you buy your own gear is so you dont need to use rental garbage anymore.

I had a Rossignol board as my first board and I thought it was a good beginner board to get me into riding.

The_Guchi 11-06-2009 07:53 PM

my first board was a rosi too i think it will do you good... you will love it and from the reviews it will be fine as you progress too

Rossi boards have gotten better the past few years. I'll always look at them as a Ski company and judge them for all those fucking rental boards they make

they make some good stuff, but i have always viewed em as a ski company, same with atomic, but oddly not with k2 lol

It is designed to be a superior all mountain does everything really well board. Rossi has intended to take the the best traits of a rocker and a traditional cambered board and meld the two. The result is their AmpTek concept where there is a traditional camber between the bindings for good edge hold in turns on hard pack and a rocker like design from the bindings out toward the tip and tail.

It is supposed to be excellent in powder like a rocker, yet behave far better than a rocker on ice. It is said to be very good for all levels of rider.

okei thx for a good answer, i have done a lot of research and haven't found any1 say anything negative about this board, and i like riding all of the mountain

so ill probably get it :)
