Snowboard-Review.com’s head of testing Tom still rants and raves about the Angus, his words at the time of testing were ” I absolutely love it”. However, it wasn’t just Tom’s opinion, last year the Angus cleaned up on awards from some of the planets most highly revered snowboard media, the revolutionary new Amptek profile had everybody in the industry talking. This year the Angus returns pretty much unchanged, some might say, change for the sake of change is futile. The only change we can find this year is a new lick of paint… a paint job so gruesome it will make small children cry from 50 feet away.
The board that re-started it all.
Not since Magne Traction has a shape created so much coverage from press and industry alike. The Angus’ AmpTek All Mountain camber is the innovation 2009 will be remembered for. It’s the most popular model the brand has offered in years and for 2010 the Angus lives on with features that make this board the mother of all mountain snowboarding. Early rise tips for absorption, positive camber between the feet for punch, carbon for explosive pop, Kevlar® for the hard landings, a sintered base for durability and speed, and London’s Dan Mumford’s dope art.

I noticed on the Rossi web site that the 153 cm Angus board had the rider’s weight listed at 120-160, and the 157 cm board had rider’s weight at 110-180. Does it mean that the longer board is softer than the shorter? And a person with lower weight should get the 157 cm board rather than the 153 cm one?

I wouldn’t take it too literally, It’s probably a mistake. And I wouldn’t get a board where you’re right on the cusp of the limits anyway. The 157 will feel like a right plank if you are 50kgs.
I’d hate to know how many mistakes you’ve spotted on this site. And that’s not a challenge… It would destroy me to know!

For a 5’10”, 170 lbs guy, should I go with 157 or 161? I ride mostly all mountain, occasionally I do hit the park for jumps and occasional boxes, very rarely rails…

Sounds like the 157 would be a good fit.

Hey I was curious as to what degree the side and base edge bevel is on the angus?
on January 06, 2011 at 09:30 AM
There is no edge bevel on the Angus. I’ve just beveled my Angus by hand because the edges were a bit too sharp for riding rails.

I am torn between purchasing the rossi agnus or the taipan. They are roughly the same price, and have similar reviews. I’m a snowboarder who has taken some time off, but have about 7 years of boarding under my belt. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I mainly ride all mountain and do some park from time to time.

SCott, I ride my Angus for everything except for the deepest powder and scariest rails. It’s a really manageable all mountain freestyle board. It’s progressive for intermediates and it’s providing me with all the board I need to learn new tricks in the park. Both boards have won awards in the Transworld Good Wood board test. If all reason fails I’d suggest you go for the board you like the look of the most if you really can’t make a judgement.

this board is super fast, when you get going man its fast.. its really nice in powder, especially when in the trees.. that’s all i basically gota say. this board is bad i love it..Page 1 of 2. 1 2 >
