Rome SDS vs. Burton

Thought I'd do a poll.

What sets these companies apart form Mervin and others as that I think these are the two biggest players that are "sowboard" companies with a full product range... Boards, Boots, Bindings, Jackets etc etc.

The Never Summer SL-R is the best all mountain board I have been on... Ever.
Buy it... Ride it... Love it...

I have a Burton board but I am a big fan of Rome's streetwear line and their women's flow bindings are awesome!!

I voted Rome...2 of my local shops are dropping Rome next year. Can't sell their shit.

Looks like Rome's anti-burton strategy is wearing off. 3-4 years ago everyone was on rome around here. Now its Capita, Lib, and Stepchild.

Most stores push Burton first I have found.. I have no idea why. So anyone listening to them ends up buying Burton, and other brands get left behind.

Not voting, but doesn't Ride sell the full range of equipment as well (I know they do jackets, pants, boots, bindings, boards...)?

I'd personally rather get from a smaller (doesn't take much to do that) company than Burton. It's also usually cheaper than buying Burton which is the main reason...

I'd vote Rome, except my United bindings got fucked up after only four trips. Found out afterwards they got recalled.

Ride does, but they are owned by Jarden... who also own K2, Volkl, and a whole bunch of other companies.

Is this supposed to be the mainstream giant vs the non-conformist?

I buy Rome because I like their design (my boards are pretty plain) and their customer service has been great. But I'd still like to have a Burton Fish if I were staying out west.

i support both and many others because they put out quality gear with great designs and competition is good. by the way, nitro also produces boots, bindings (raiden) and outerwear (L1).

rome is wearing off because their quality started to go down a bit a few years back. rome is back next season, trust me.
