Blacklight is wicked fun

I've tried out a bataleon jam and a travis rice BTX, and I think this one's my favorite. The flex is probably a true 7/10: it's fun to do butters and wheelies, but it has enough power in the tail to cut through choppy crud and won't get pushed around in soft snow.
It's stable at speed, which I was a little worried about- it looks like it has a pretty short effective edge so I was afraid that it might not really be able to lay a carve -not a problem.
The mellow sidecut in the nose makes it easy to land switch, but it also means that it's pretty slow to turn going backwards.
Oh I'm 5'10 185, and if I had to buy one board it would be the 160, but Since I got a bro deal, I snagged a 57 for playing around and a 63 for the snow days ;)
