I got the 2010 joystick on sale. Always wanted to know what it's like to ride a rocker board. Overall the Joystick is a fun to ride and playful board but in icy conditions, it doesn't hold it's edge. My other board is an Arbor Elements. It's edge hold is phenomenal in all conditions and speed. If you like speed and carving, Joystick doesn't hold up to it. Otherwise it's a very nice board to ride.
