One thing you should know...
Model: 2013 / 156 Me: 173 lbs, 5'10', Skills: advanced: This is a great all around board. Well made in the US. Cool graphics. Loose and a lot of fun. Forgiving on landings... even when you think you are going wreck. It did everything I asked it to do (great in pow), except... it's squarely/unstable when you flat base on packed powder. At first I thought it was me and that I just needed more time on the board, but the more I road it, I found that the reverse camber of the board keeps the edges from engaging. Occasionally an edge would catch and through me off guard. I want to love this board, alas... After thinking about last season, I spent it up on the edges to avoid this squirrliness. As a result, I was not able to bomb hills and keep up with friends even on greens. Other reviews mention this instability. One reviewer mentioned that he was able to learn how to control it. I want to bomb hills... So next season I'm going to an aggressive all mountain twin with twin cam rocker.
