If you had no quiver and didn't care about price what would you pick?

I'll go first: since I don't ride park hardly at all I would probably pick the most recent Ride Berserker if I had to go with one board.

If I had megabucks, I'd go into the most well-stocked shop in our area and buy 10 boards and 10 sets of bindings. Of course I'd be retired (or a professional snowboarder which is about the same thing) so I'd be able to spend all day trying them out against each other.

I'd get the Cygnus-x1 just to see if riding a $3000 board offers any advantages.
But I'm with Donutz on getting a mega quiver as well.

I don't know if I would have the patience for 100 different combinations. Even if I were retired. I could, however, easily come home with that many jackets.

Ha; this question is easy to aswer. I've just spent some hours looking for reviews/info since the splitboard retailer site with the biggest selection in this county was updated today with the 13/14 stuff - and I'm clueless... I'd just get all 13 splits and find out by myself, which one is MY one :)

Yeah, it's kind of a trick question because I don't think any dedicated rider would only be stuck with one board if money was no issue.

A press, digital screen printer, quality mid weight bi and tri glass, carbon stringers, strips, and sticks, 7000 extruded base material, and a core mill. Make my own damn boards.

And a big honkin' pickup truck to cart in snow from the back of the local icerink where the Zamboni gets emptied.

I would honestly choose the Cygnus-X1, because it really does look awesome. It costs more than the car I'm looking at buying, so I'd never realistically consider it unless I could get it at a steep discount, but it does look like it's had a lot of effort put into making it.

Easy, the board I already own...

I try not to let money dictate my board purchases. I spend way too much on lift tickets, meals, and other gear to go cheap on the board. :dunno:

I don't care how rich you are, the Cygnus is still just overpriced hype with a sprinkling of bullshit. If we're burning money like we just don't care, might as well buy this useless $660 piece of shit:

Slippery Banana Banana – Lib Tech

I tried to make it clear that unless I had literally UNLIMITED money, I wouldn't actually buy the Cygnus for full price.

EDIT: I should stop talking. How about this: If the Cygnus was 550 dollars, I think I'd buy it.

If money were no object I would keep all my existing gear and hire McMorris, Torstein, Blauvelt, and the Flying Tomato as full-time coaches.

PS: And T. Rice as well - it looks like he is doing a nice job waxing that board during the opening credits of TAOF, so he can do my sticks too.

Unlimited? Then I'd get part of "my" mountain. Not all of it but this one lift that accesses most of the nice SC. Don't think I could track this one out in two days if it's all mine :). And there would be no need to rise unnaturally early in the morning and endure this fevered queueing (with a huge tendency to aggressiveness) that seems to be necessairy for some at after-storm mornings :huh:
