I'm not sure if anyone has ever done this, but if you take boards that are supposed to be the same size from differen't companies and put them next to eachother they come out differently. My buddy and I noticed this at the shop that we both work at last week. We compared an 05 Substance 142 with the 05 3ds 142. The 3DS is much bigger. Kinda strange thing, don't know if anyone else has ever noticed. So you might want to check that out next time you buy a board.

what do you mean by bigger? Longer? wider?

Could it have to do with the rocker?

The rocker sounds right cause the more bend it has the shorter it will get like folding a piece of paper in half

It could be the fact that the 3ds is a 143 not a 142. Seems like local shops never hire people that know anything about the sport. Just kidding nick but our local shop didnt know the difference in a Snowboard company and a Wake Co.

Thane is right, the rocker length is whats measured. Substance is a 3 stage and 3ds is continuous so the substance is gonna look shorter if you stand them on the ground next to each other.

I can understand it looking shorter definately due to rocker. But it is a BIG difference. We compared several boards, that was just the first ones that we did. It was definately a good probably 5cm difference. It was just something we noticed one day is all that I thought I would point out.
