I was just thinking about which pow board i was getting, and i remembered about the burton fish. Woah, fish? yeah, fish.

i noticed theres alot of pow guns out there, how come never talks about the fish? Its sintered and has been in the line for quite a while. How is it on groomers? durability? stiff? i was thinking about the 156...

Also, is slash still made in nidecker factory, and do they still make shitty boards?

But really, what makes it worse then hovercraft, camel toe or any other pow board. i like the shape and the stats are there. Plus the est is a plus.

After all this years, it has to be good. Besides the est, what is fish lacking. Is it horrible on groomers? what is a good swallow tail board?
why the fuck would you buy a pow board to ride on groomers it defeats the point of having a pow board.

I really like the look of the 2014 Fish, only problem with it in my mind is the cost...it's going to be 700.00 and that's 200-300 more than a lot of other pow boards. Considering this season so far hasn't really been a good year for epic pow days, it makes you second guess the investment for a board you might only ride a couple of days a year....cause you know you'll also probably end up buying EST Bindings to go along with it (maybe not), which adds to the costs as well.

Reason im asking is because i just spotted a cheetah for about 430$ with a cosmetic blem. Ill see if i can dish out. Looks good anyways. Thanks torpedo, appreciate it. Arsenalfan, i know right. I got 1 half decent pow day in, but non the less it would be cool to have one. Im hoping for a march dump and a snowy 2014. Are you guys getting the sunshine season pass next year? or is it going to be the castle one?

Sunshine for sure. I will probably buy a Lake Louise pass as well. If I buy both before may it will be around $1300 All In.
Well, lake is 45 minutes farther, but well worth it. I say you go for the lake Louise one and get yourself something nice beside it. Sunshine is cool but not that challenging and they don't get the snow lake does. Im contemplating between Lake Louise and sunshine and i think im going to give lake a try. Are you still picky about the "giving me a lift" thing...?

If your looking for a good pow board that does well on groomers, try the hovercraft. some guy won a race with one.
