Got it back today. Bought a 2011 got back a 2012. Not a bad deal for $200. I should break more new last years models on the first day out.

Glad it worked out for you!

Good on Rossi for stepping up.

Seems like Rossi is trying to step their game up snowboard wise. Some of the newer boards at least sound great on paper. Glad they hooked you up. Let us know how it rides!

If it was me I'd be skeptical of that deck, no way the first one should have broke under those conditions.

I rode it yesterday and this is the funnest board I've ever ridden. I'm in New York and for what snow we have it rode very well. The mag edge works good for me, its poppy and it turns on a dime, pretty stable considering its 3mm shorter than my old board and noticeably softer.
I've been riding @ 5-7 years (I'm 37 so I'm old) and I come from a heavy skateboarding background(my knees are fucked). I was riding a gnu chb with mag and that board was cumbersome in comparison.
And as far as being skeptical of this board. The way I see it is I got a solid deal on a brand new board and if it breaks again... Meh, ill ride my gnu and send it back again.

Even though Rossi is a ski company, at least they back Xavier, and if they are this attentive to strange random breaking shit, right on.

I've had old Rossi's back in the day, nothing special.

The new Rossi's with Amp-Tek, are something different!

Whatever is in that Amp-Tek shit, is the real deal.
