Next Board?
#16
NeverSummer SL

[Image: B_sl.jpg]

It's NeverSummer's freestyle board that is not strictly limited to the park like the EVO.

I wish I could demo stuff...do you still want an all-around board? yesterday I spent a good hour comparing all the rome board specs, and I mean ALL the details, including sheet density and radius :freak: it must be nearing summer...

but I can't decide if I like the solution over the anthem, the solution is a bit more park oriented, but I decided I want an all-around board so hmm....the womens boards are just not up to the other boards' quality, strange. the anthem is a bit stiffer, but I'm sure I can handle it on the rails...and the graphics are sweeet Big Grin at least this years' are...hopefully they'll still be nice come 20 years from now when I can afford one.

whoa I'm thinking out loud here, sorry...time to go study my other catalogs.

Burton's clearcoat is way too scratch prone, it looks more at home on a car than on a snowboard, they won't tell me what it is but my assumption is that is a older lacquer that car makers used back in the 80s. Maybe they should use a PPG Diamond Coat/Delfleet or a DuPont Imron clearcoat for better durability.

As for Never Summer, i heard nothing but good about their boards. Hard to find locally though. They do offer a 3 year warranty on their boards.

been searching for another board for next season also but finding it hard to get one that i need.tried the whole board-finding calculator thing but the smallest one that it gave me was 148 (I think) and a lot of them 150+. weight i think is considered the biggest factor but only 5'3" here and a 148 would go almost to my eyes.been looking at the NS evo since they have a 142 but has anyone ridden one and how does it do, say if you were to bomb down a run? was also looking at the system(NS) and some others...Palmer, K2, etc. don't wanna try any jr. boards...I'd probably snap them in half...lol (145lbs here).I have found some decent boards but wanna get out of the extruded bases and try a sintered. Is there a real big difference between the two types? Any particular models between 140-145 is what I'm looking for (148 max).love to work on freestyle but once in a while I like to hit a run fast without my board chattering like a paint can shaker :p. Don't want any Burton types tho.....the 3-hole system just never got to me(have you noticed how they are putting 3 & 4-hole plates with their bindings Rolleyes ). any help would make me a happy boarder for next season....lol Big Grin

The Anthem can hold its own in the park, even though its technically the big mountain freeride board. Obviously the Solution is much better for freestyle, but it can also hold its own for freeriding. The Solution is a little more versitile than the Agent is, so that might work for you. Remember, my dream board is the 161 Rome Machine...the machine is a mid-wide cross between the Agent and the Solution, and the machine still freerides like a dream. Its been awhile since I rode a Solution (a year and a half) and I'm much more critical of baords I ride now because I have more to compare it too, but I don't recall having any problems freeriding with a solution. And I had an Anthem as a season rental last season as well, which was decent in the park. It didn't feel as nice on rails or landings as the Solution does, but it wasn't bad. But then again the Solution is cheaper Big Grin Either would could work. The 06 graphics on the Anthem are still pretty cool, but the Solution's are a huge improvement off of last season.

Here...straight out of the 06 Season Catalog, there are a few things that might be helpful:
Solution:
Response- Stable in take off, stable in landing, stable at speed, smooth flexing, and carvable.
Tricks- switch 3s, hand-plants,backflips, laybacks, high speed bank turns
Favorites- slow rotations, bottom turns, free tickets, fun boxes, and rock drops into powder
(Besides, my favorite boarder, Marius Otterstad, rides a Solution :p)

Anthem:
Response- Snappy, quick but stable, stable but quick, powerful.
Tricks- Cab 9s, powder wheelies, methods, boardslides (can't be too bad at grinding then, huh?) tall snatches, slashes.
Favorites- First chairs, fresh parks, well-groomed pipes (again, can't be too bad at park with those locations listed) white rooms, and ridge hikes.
But then again, Otterstad rides an Anthem as well :p

The anthem also has a higher torsional rating (ability for the board to turn on its center axis) than the solution, by 1.

I think either could work for you Amber. Does this mean I'm the boards reigning Rome expert yet? :p

thanks Justin, that really does help. I think a bit more of a freestyle lean is gonna be ok. I decided I wanted an all-mountain board because ski apache can get some good pow and it's freaking gorgeous right off the gondola, it kinda kicked in that wouldn't want to miss out on that....or racing my sister Big Grin

I'm stuck between the huge section of rollers Rogue Angel and the sheer vertical challenge of Shockwave... and my fave park is AmEx

Def shockwave - first time down we were on our way to White Heat and I totally bailed when I saw the first dropoff lol. Took a sharp right and hit shockwave and I pretty much rolled down it (only like my 4th time on a board). I think we ended up going back down it like 3 more times before I would let them do another run. Still my fave run though- the little bumps on it are alot of fun with some fresh snow.

Not sure which park we were in but we spent most of the time in the park kind of at the bottom of shockwave - near the snowtubing runs. I don't play much in the park though - I can't figure out my edges in the half pipe and I'm really afraid I'm going to break my legs landing the big jumps lol. I tried a couple of popups off of a 1/4 pipe, a couple little jumps this year and I'm pretty solid riding fakey (i think i started off on the wrong leg so I kind of learned to ride both) so hopefully next season I'll get a little braver.

Thanks for all the info guys - no clue what I'll end up getting at this point - wish I had started thinking about it in Feb or so.... Wink
