    Nice. So how many boards do you own? If I plan on buying another board I'd be interesting in something with a flex rating of 3 and probably a full reverse rocker. The one I have currently is rocker/flat/rocker. One thing I realized is it's a lot harder picking out a snowboard then it is a skateboard. And I'm diggin' this warm weather, but I would love it to snow already so I can practice.

    Brandon could answer this better for you but from what I've been reading over the months, seems like Union Force's are popular in the snowboard community.

    Sadly, I need to work on selling my board, this year. I didn't go at all last year, and went once the year before. I like snowboarding, but it's too expensive and not my thing. Kills my already bad knees (main reason I stopped street skating) haha. I do however expect to see footy from you guys this year!

    I have 4 boards that i can still ride at the moment, one is destroyed. The capita horrorscopes are insanely flexy that's what i rode last year.
    union forces are their best imo but any unions you get you'll like. i do how ever like my cobrasharks over my unions because the straps are much nicer on the burtons... could be because theyre new and the unions for 05/06 seasons.

    TGI, you'll definitely see footy from me, picked up an hvx a few months ago and im ready to go.

    I would like to get a horroscope for my next board. it seems like a sick board. they just don't have it in the wide size i want. and i don't think they added any new wide sizes to the 2013 lineup. i was also eyeing the artifact rocker. they actually have it in the wide size i want. so getting that board is always a possibility. all i know is that the next board i do get will be a lot more flexible then the one i currently have

    What do you have right now? They have the horrorscope in a 151w and a 155w
    Also, a few of my friends got the ultrafear last year and it has a flex rating of 5 according to capita but it's way more flexy than a 5, i'd put it at a 3 all day.

    Looks like rome is finally getting decent graphics again too, i feel like their past two years were terrible.

    I currently have postermanina in 155w. It's a good size, i like it. But i know i'd like it a tad bit smaller if i got a more flexible board. I was thinking 152w. Do you think 151w would make a much difference? Hmm. I still have a long time to debate all this over. Haha. **** i just want it to snow already.

    Nah, if you're down sizing anyway either way its going to feel weird at first might as well get the 151w. I went from a 148 to a 152 back to a 148 within the passed few seasons.
