I've been riding this board as my freestyle board so far this year and its super poppy and has a great edge hold with the grip tech edges. Not as soft as I thought. It is arbors softest board though. I would give it a 4-5 for flex on a scale from 1-10. (1 being the softest) It does NOT have a 2 cm setback, it is centered. Love the graphics on the board, just icing on the cake!
