This board is legit. Compared to other rocker boards, the Joystick is stocked with tech features- putting this board at the high end of the rocker board spectrum. The edge hold is super impressive (frost bite edges at work??) at all speeds...on and off groomers. One thing to be aware of, is how stiff this board is. I was expecting a mid-stiff board (this was my powder quiver)...but it feels super stiff to me. Not necessarily a good or bad thing, just something to note.
