Thumbs up What Company Makes the Best Snowboards, & Why?

Everybody has their favorite. I know I certainly have mine and its definately changed over the years as some brands have come and gone.

In your opinion, who makes the best snowboards?

Why ?

I like ski companies, just because their stuff tends to have a TON more quality in it. Don't get me wrong, core companies like Rome and Union makes SICK stuff too, but I've had more positive experiences with ski companies than core companies.

As for "best", it depends on what suits what YOU ride. Ie, a companies great freeride board may not necessarily suit you, who may enjoy freestyle alot.

I'm not knowledgable enough to really say who makes the best boards, but I personally really dig Salomon at the momen. But that's just because they're what I'm most familiar with. Every board I've ridden by them has been quality.

currently the brand I fell in love with is BATALEON! by riders for riders with no hidden corporations behind it - so it's all about putting your money back where it belongs - to riders
...wait... CONCAVE! if you don't give a damn about philosophy, check out their construction. Maybe I am late and someone else started doing it, but as far as I know it's the only brand that makes the base in 3D - makes sense - decreases possibility of catching that nasty edge on the rail... ouch!
am not gonna bore you with tech stuff - if you feel like it go to bataleon.com and see for yourself.

other than that:
lib tech - went through a few of them, love'em!
salomon - still love'em, even though I broke one of the top freestyle models 4 years ago
morrow - same story as with salomon - although it was their 3d revert model with some wicked new core technology (about 7-8 years ago, dunno if they got any better - I know the technology is still the same) anyways love them, cause Todd Richards use to ride for them.
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

As far as experience goes I don't have enough to make a call on that. However, as far as research goes and mean, LOTS of research... Burton hands down. Burton has a rule, everyone that works for Burton HAS to snowboard a certain amount of times for the year with burton boards for feedback. If it snows alot outside they close the plant down & snowboard. Burton is super involved with there work & people that work for them. There isnt one company that does stuff like that.
