The Niche Theme is looking nice. 155 has about 1cm of camber, feels snappy and quite burly. The 1819 Aether has a less pronounced rocker zone and also camber sections seeem lower. Bit heavier and thicker core profiling as well. Was looking at a 157 1819 kazu at a shop and it's significantly thicker and heavier than my 1617. 

Are there reports on a lot of variance or do they just change stuff from year to year? I know mothership is greedy as fuck and a couple brands are jumping ship and even more are at least dissatisfied (late deliveries, quality issues..)

Edit: Shit, totally wrong thread.

I think i might buy an outsiders 56 to replace the mod which has become a chore to keep into shape. And i feel weird about it cause its kind of not within my preferred specs yet is the only board i think of buying. I am mad. 🤨 

A fresh pair of bindings would also be nice so i don't have to switch around.

What about the Rome Buckshot?

Appears to be on the softer side. Want something med to stiff.

Yeah. Hah. I meant greedy to the point that they're taking too many brands in, more than they can handle and that can be seen in the quality issues and late deliveries. The late deliveries being intentional to get theirs in first, I reallly don't know. Just spoke to some angry but maybe biased insiders.
