If it's sold at discount sporting goods stores like Big5, that's a sign right there.

I'm a fan of the smaller companies that have their stuff made in North America rather than China or in Europe where most of the boards come out of the same plant, same mold, with different graphics.

I've ridden a Signal, which was pretty good. I just discovered Harlot Snowboards but haven't tried one out, and can't find one anywhere near me in the first place, but they look wicked, the tech looks good, and they're hand made which can only be a good thing. And I've used a Smokin Snowboard which was great as well.

Too many people stick to Burton or whatever, way too narrow minded if you ask me. There's a world of better products out there by better companies more in touch with the culture and that's really important.

Just my opinion but I know there are a ton of people like me out there.

burton - crap. c'mon guys, we all know it's crap
forum - rewind 6-7 years ago - they had the best snowboarders in the world on 1 team!!! Thanx Peter Line
burton isint crap as it is just way over rated cuz you have to admit if your bying some of there more expensive stuff its really nice

My first board (i.e. my only board) is a Morrow. I likes it. I likes it a lot. But I haven't gotten a chance to try many other boards out, just the Rossignols they have at the rental place on the mountain. But the only thing that bothers me about my Morrow board is the plastic bindings. They sound creaky, and I know I'm gonna break them eventually. But I got the whole setup for $150, I'm not mad at all.

Never summer for myslef personally.

Bought a 158 Evo-R last week, had 8 days on it. I have ridden everything on it, park, powder, grommer and ice. It slays EVERYTHING.

My ollies have doubled in size.
Edge hold is incredible.
Buttering is so easy it, should be labled cheatering.

I have completely nailed rocks with it, and needless to say the rocks came of second best. I would never (summer) be able to say that about a many other boards I've ridden.

They say immitation is the best form of flatery, look at Nitro's Sub Pop for proof that Rocker-Camber is madness...

Oh and that Never summer is sold out completely from factory.

wondering why it is priced more (and much more in some cases)

All that said....Burton does have great marketing and a sound business plan. I've been wanting to demo some other brands, but every demo day around here seems to be Burton, Burton and more Burton. I've only been able to ride one Rome board (and way too short for me) and a smattering of mid-range boards from other brands. Every Burton demo day, I seem to be able to try out every one of their models in pretty close to my size.

shit thread.

Everyone is going to state whatever they currently own or have owned and say its the best. Everyone offers something a little different so go check em out.

Neversummer, Lib-Tech, GNU, Forum, Monument, Arbor,Burton (:O blasphemy), all make excellent products. Ask to try out friends for a run, demo as often as you can, read up on the products and pick what works best for you.
