At 150lbs I didnt feel overly stable on the 159 Black Death. So I'm going with not that stable. You are much better off with the Rossis in my experience.
Thanks man. Surprising that the 159 felt a bit unstable.At 150lbs I didnt feel overly stable on the 159 Black Death. So I'm going with not that stable. You are much better off with the Rossis in my experience.
Your post is filled with non-sense :icon_scratch:And rossignols warranty SUCKS so hard I can't even tell you. And it's a ski company.
I'd like to hear why their warranty sucks. And oh no, a brand that used to sponsor Travis Rice, Chad O, J.Jones, and still sponsors Xavier also makes skis. Northface and Vans are connected, Volcom is owned by prada. The Union dudes came from rollerblades. Gonna boycott all them too?And rossignols warranty SUCKS so hard I can't even tell you. And it's a ski company.
You're still bitching about a warranty problem you had 7 years ago? Do you also boycott Nike for the factory fiasco in the 80's?I bought a brand new board back in the '07-08 season and used it a single time on the hill. The board clearly had a spot that was delaminating on the topsheet and it flexed on that point, causing the topsheet to crack. (note this was NOT a binding line break, but much farther up on the nose of the board)
Rossignol was a royal pain to deal with, with the warranty people telling me over and over it was a binding line break. They finally told me to send the board in at my own expense, which I did. After multiple emails and no response after a 2+ month period I was finally able to get in contact with someone in the warranty department. They flat turned me down claiming binding line break which was utter bullshit for a board that was used 1 time and was clearly delaminating. So at this point I'm out ~200 for the board, 35 for shipping, and I don't have a deck to ride.
Here's the best part: they threatened to destroy my board because they said it was unsafe to ride and were trying to get me to pay return shipping costs to get the board back to me.
Who from Union came from rollerblading? I worked at C3 for over a year and never heard that zinger so please fill me in on that one.
While I agree with a lot of the input you put into this forum, I have to respectfully disagree with this. If a company did treat me poorly, I would most definitely judge a company differently, and despite any changes they have made to improve their services, I think the sourness from my previous experience would turn me off from buying from that company again. This is especially true when there are many different brands that produce a similar quality product.So lets judge an entire company forever cause you had one bad experience. That makes sense.
You really think they have the same policies or even the same people they did back then?
ahhh...how good a board is in the chop...is mostly dependent on the rider's skill and the heaviness/wetness of the chop. On soft chop any stiff enough board is going to be fine vs heavy mashed potato chop no board is going to work well and is more about line selection and rider skill.Opinion seems pretty split with some saying it gets bucked around in the chopped up crud and others saying it plows like a beast. Thoughts from those who've ridden it?
Looking to pick up a camrock charger that leans freeride, but keeps a toe in freestyle feel. Pretty much down to the BSOD or the Rossi Angus or One Mag.
