Seems like most of those types of "snowboarding companies" basically try putting new topsheets on old technology and selling their "lifestyle brand". It almost never works and for good reason.

If a model from Status is 200 bucks cheaper than the model that it's based off of from Never Summer wouldn't you like it more too?

I think a lot of people would be surprised at how many boards are exactly the same, come out of the exact same factories, and yet have varying prices.

I've ridden boards that are the exact same specs from big and small companies. They ride exactly the same and yet there's a $150 price difference.

As a friend that runs a factory and is a board designer said, "there's a lot of people that want to own a company, but don't know shit about shapes, don't ride their own shapes, and just say 'make it like this brands', which is really sad".

I have one Status Focus 158, bought it two years ago for $118.00 cannot beat the price. It was the closes NS board i could own. Love the board and how it rides, though i demo'ed newer NS boards last season(Ripsaw,Chairman, Proto HD) and really felt what i was missing on my Status but it's just not within my budget. I bought me a Rossi board to replace it, my Status will be my loaner /rock board now.
