Big guys need tech, too.
- Magne-Traction edge offers multiple points of contact with the snow for excellent control as well as improved edge pressure and grip
- Directional twin shape facilitates switch takeoffs and landings, but still provides power out of high-speed turns
- Wood C/K core features carbon- and KEVLAR�-reinforced wood for extra pop and durability
- Sintered 4400 base combines the speed and durability of a sintered base with the easy maintenance of softer bases
- Moderately stiff flex for peak-to-park versatility
- Sick graphics by Dan Mumford make it easy for you to find your board on a crowded rack at lunchtime

Hey Big White Rider! First of all thanks...
Hey Big White Rider! First of all thanks for the great and detailed review of the Angus board! I have a question tho! You said that you have last years model of it. heres the deal; Im new to snowboarding (actually im out here buying my first board as I have only been skiing the last many years) but I was wondering if you had the regular version or the wide version of the Angus? you said it was too fast for the park so i thought of maybe the wide version is a bit slower?
Oliver from Denmark!
i got the last years model of this board. at first i was VERY skeptical about rossi, being a burton rider my whole life. but it was on sale and i was broke and needed a board. so i broke down and bought it. first day: i strap it on, and notice "holy hell this is a light board" my burton from 07 was a clunker, so this was a HUGE difference. so i get to the top of the hill and fly down the runs the fastest i have EVER gone on any board. this thing just HUGGED the runs, never caught an edge, kept its balance really well. the only thing that this board ever had an issue with was ice, but the icy runs were graded really weird (why build a run that skirts along the edge of a cliff and have it 10 degrees downhill slant to the left?) handles absolutely amazing in pow, and does great on technical runs with moguls (YES I PUT MYSELF THRU THAT HELL!) cant really keep up in the park compared to a libtech board as this board runs very fast, and you can definitely lose control in the park if you dont watch it. i had a bad issue with overshoot going to this board cause its so fast. it does however have ALOT of pop to it.
all in all, its a great board, maybe not ideal for a beginner, but not so terribly advanced that a beginner wouldnt be able to ride it.
