Been wanting to try one of these since they came out I sold a few over the years but wanted to ride something bigger than 150. And then this year they had to be assholes and make me want one because they made a 157. I wasn't planning on buying one but then a buddy offered it to me for 275 so I couldn't resist. I'm thinking I'll have to decide between this and the twin pig. I'm still planning to only have 3 boards by the end of the season.

Rode the Ravine 155 today.  The shape and profile is great (3D nose, lots of camber, 15mm setback, 8mm taper) but it was SOFT..like park board soft.  It was easy to press and fun on the hips that were set up today but looped out a few times just from the tail folding over.  If it was stiffer I’d be quick to reccomend it as a daily.

A guy who works at Rome recommended a Ravine when I was talking about a soft snow surfer type ride. He said much, much softer than you'd think.

I like Romes a lot, I own two, but their stiffness ratings are a little funny. They call both the Whiteroom Split and the Blur an 8/10, but the WR is significantly stiffer than the Blur. The National is supposedly a 7 but handflexs much, much stiffer than the Blur. And the Ravine is also apparently a 7 but is apparently pretty noodle-y.

If the Ravine was stiffer I think I’d be content with it as a true quiver killer.  It’s comparable in flex to a Burton Process, Horrorscope, etc. Weird.. but fun.

Too fucking true, I thought I was all set and I ended up with 5 or 6 new boards this year.

Strong contender for comment of the year. But it's early on.

Fortunately, there aren't any boards out there right now that have me feeling like Pookie from New Jack City. 

 

I've been scooping up bindings like their going out of production entirely in 2 months tho.

Dang, that's a deal. I demoed the 150 and found it to be a little too small, but still really fun. I've never ridden anything as wide as the 157 though, which has held me back from an impulse purchase.

Also, I haven't bought a snowboard in over a year. Always manage to talk myself out of it. Do I get a token or something?

Testing fa and dt side by side I just had to. 

DSC 0047

more nose rocker on DT and it feels like a smaller board.
