Burton makes some great gear and I have a lot of respect for them because they have remarkable advertising and a dominant marketshare in a competitive business, but there is no way that they are unequivocally make the best gear out there. If you had heavily ridden Burton's gear I'd respect your opinion as valid, but clearly you haven't.
*Applause* hands-down best post I've seen on this forum ever! Sorry dude, but the dude has a point. Personally, I think that Burton is great. They are pretty much top of the line in quality... and price, lets admit. I can agree with your assessment of the company to an extent, but being that I am very new to Burton equipment, I cannot say wether or not it is the BEST company out there. I'm sure that Burton is a better company than DC, but what about K2? Just because you don't hear about them as much as Burton doesn't mean that they are any less respectable. kimchijajonshim has a point at the begining of his quote and he is a little harsh, but sometimes the truth hurts. Idk how long you have been boarding, however by the things that kimchijajonshim claims you said, you just plainly don't know what you are talking about.
I'll be honest with you that this 2014 year is only my second season. I'm a noob. I joined this forum to ask questions to PROs who KNOW WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT -emphasis on that- and to spread the knoledge that I have learned through reasearch and this forum. When somebody asks a question on here, they want an answer provided by somebody who knows what they are talking about. They don't need to be told lies by random know-it-all people.
I'm sorry to lay it down to you man, but nobody wants a person who is going to act as if he knows stuff but really doesn't on this forum. If you keep acting like a veteran snowboarder to people who need solid answers from actual pros, they are going to receive the wrong information, spend their money on what you endorse and then they are going to realize that they have been screwed up by an idiot on some snowboarding forum and they are going to get mad at you. They might even rage quit on the whole idea of snowboarding.
For example, if I wanted to know what size board I needed for powder boarding and somebody said that their board is up to their chin, I would go out and spend my money on a board that is too small for me and have a horrible time.
I think you get he point. Have a nice day,
