- Name: 2006 M3 Discord Snowboard Men's
- Skill: Beginner
- Use: Groomed,Powder
- Pros: Low cost, Flexibility, good carve
- Cons: preconceived notions, brand support,
M3 used to be a high tier niche board maker until they were bought out by a mass-producer which stopped updating the board designs and went for quantity over quality. However, the designs went with the M3 name so the existing designs are still of high quality, just a little out-dated.
Because of the buyout a lot of the snobbier folks will scoff at M3 and write them off as worse than rental equipment. This is 100% wrong. M3 still makes a good board at a great price.
The Discord is a fantastic first board. The low entry price and sturdy design allows for carefree all mountain riding all season long. This board is great for carving and has just enough pop to start hitting the terrain park. You wont be going to the next X-games with the Discord, but you can get your start ;)
Overall, a great beginners board.
