it's not advertised here but this board has 2 variations of style, theres the zero camber and then the v-rocker edition. as far as i know the v-rocker is the flat black model and the one featured here is the zero-camber. i have the v-rocker and ive ridden it once this season and i love it, i give the feel more than a 2, closer to a 5. mid soft flex is pretty forgiving but stiff enough to stick landings without getting squirrelly. id compare this to the love without the ics and not as much flex. overall sick board. if you can get your hands on the ltd edition graphics do it!
