I bought my Nitro Volume in late January off of e-bay for $100. It was brand new with the stickers still on. I love my Nitro! It's not the fancy gullwing, just standard camber, but it still rocks.

So after riding it a couple mos. now, how's it holding up? Wondering about your opinion on the quality/durability/fit/finish.

I'd say it's holding up pretty well. It seems to be a well built board. It has a few knicks and dings in the top sheet, but only around the edges and nothing major. I love the finish on it, it's super glossy and has stayed that way through riding it. It also helps it clean up real nice. For the base, I have put a few little dings in it, but only because riding at Snoqualmie this season equals running over rocks. Even still, none of them have been core shots and only one or two of them have made me consider ptex filling. The edges have held up very well, and the wax seems to stay on it pretty well also. I waxed it once when I first got it, rode it 5 times in varying conditions, and then noticed it was starting to need wax. I figure this is about right so I'm happy there. Overall I am super stoked on this board and would say that it can hang with the best of them when it comes to durability.

Polyp,

Thats such a coincidence...I was sitting at my computer seriously flipping out cuz there was three 157s left and I hit refresh and all the sudden there was one left. I ended up getting that last one so we must have gotten the last two. That was such a sick deal im so stoked for this thing to come.

so i took this board to whitefish. well first of all, i should note that this is my first "real" board so everything would probably be awesome. But this board performed much better than my expectations, I could turn much sharper than i was ever able to (even on a sprained ankle), and it held its edge perfectly in ice. felt very stable at speed, and loved the way it reacted in powder/deeper snow. As for the base, it was as fast as I expected reading comments online. No problem whatsoever clearing traverses, and this is probably the first time it felt like I was accelerating from a stop on a very, very flat area. but then again, new board. However, judging from friends, i felt my base was faster.

As for the shiny top sheet, I'm still slightly worried because it looks damageable. The nose has a small nick from lift lines, and the sticker's peeling off abit, so I'm glad it's not a $500 board.

Regarding the board wanting to pull in tight, I think I have felt that. When going down, it's not usually a problem, but there were a couple times when i was zoning out (basically not moving), then the board pulled in and i caught an edge, which doesn't usually happen. I also felt it when I was trying to clear a very flat area, the board wants to turn, and you need to consciously keep it under control. Got used to it without realizing - it was only on switch that i realized this as something different from my past board. Shouldn't be a problem if you have experience. But yes, i love the way this board turns, and i can't wait to try it out soon with a fully healed ankle.
