Wink Rossignol Temptation Board

Hi! Has anyone ever used Rossi's Temptation line? I'm looking to get their 2007 Temptation board (Best Price on Rossignol Temptation 143cm Snowboard - Women's Snowboards Snowboarding Gear Equipment) but can't find any reviews on that line or the board. Just wondering if anyone here has used it and what their experience with it was. Or in general: how do Rossi boards rate?

Currently, I have a Limited board, which is okay. I got it about 3 seasons ago as a beginner board, but I'd like to upgrade. I usually just freeride, but who knows--if I get enough guts to take on the jumps, maybe one day.

Any words of wisdom would be great...

Thanks!!!

I've clearly never used it but I have heard from someone that it is a decent board. Rossignol makes nice stuff and it's pretty affordable. I'd say it's probably a middle of the road, maybe a little better, board. Again, though, this isn't from personal experience.

Cool

Thanks, Flick! It's good to get some confirmation that it's on ok middle-line board. I'm not in the market for an expensive top-line one, just something that'll be reliable. Did your friend happen to mention anything about how much flex/pop the board has?

Thanks again!

Yeah, Rossignol makes pretty good boards and they get even better when you go in to their top end stuff. Since the board you are looking at is an all mountain board, you are going to have a medium flex. To some people, thats just right.. and to others, its too stiff. Just personal preference really.

Thumbs up

Thanks, Reker...I guess I'll trust it based on reputation. As long as it's a good all around board, which it sounds like it'll turn out to be, I think I should be ok. Thanks again for replying.
