best brand of snowboards?
I found some snowboards on ebay that im looking into buying. Im trying to make a decision on buying one of these i was leaning toward the sims because thats the most popular company. If anyone knows in general about any of the manufactures snowboards or what brand just beats out the rest it would be appreciated thanks!!

They are:

i see there's a pretty large range in the lengths. whats your size (ht and weight) and riding style?

SNk2010 02-14-2008 03:31 PM

freestyle riding, 145 pounds. i already know my size i just need to know what brand is best.

there is no such thing as a universally best brand. even within one brand there are lines that are awesome and others that are less so. HOWEVER, i get your dilemma and i dont have first hand experience with any of those boards but if you put a gun to my head and made me choose one of the brands i'd go with sims.

out of those i'd go with the sims. BUT if i were you i'd go to a store that is having a kick ass sell and buy it there. Otherwise of ebay you may get it and realize it doens't fit or something like that. Also are you sure you know your size? going from 155 to 144 is alot different but w/e.

Im not sure everyone would agree, but I think technine is the best! The capped toe strap on the bindings is awesome.

wow, sims is the "most popular" brand? i thought that was burton..

figure out what length you need for god's sake. and of the 3 i'd take the rossignol.

check out the rome boards, and step child is a pretty new company but they seem to have some nice product.

I know it may seem like a wide range but im new to these skill level boards so i must consider that and my weight. also Im only 16 which means im not done growing yet.
