high speed ripper

Got this in a 160cm (I ride park boards in the 150-154 range and pow boards in the 157-160 range) and am super stoked on it. The topsheet is gorgeous and the construction is the quality you'd expect from Arbor. I have it with a Voile kit right now, but definitely plan on upgrading to split-specific bindings in the future because even with the karakoram clips there's still some slop in the seam. However, that doesn't stop it from floating effortlessly in powder and it surprisingly rips through chunder and down groomers better than most regular boards I've ridden. The only complaints I have is that it's hard to maneuver at slow speeds, making it difficult to ride in tight trees. Once you open her up though, it's smooth sailing. My other gripe is that the rocker shape tends to make the tip and tail flex outward when skinning, which often makes me sink further into the snow even on established skin tracks. Overall, really stoked on it and excited to continue my Wasatch explorations on it.
