I've ridden this all season in every type of condition. Deep pow in the trees, corduroy steeps, and powder filled chutes, and I haven't found a real weakness for this shape. I love how short it is, I can whip this into a turn like no other. I love how surfy it is too. Holds an edge on ice. If you're riding switch a lot this board won't be great but that's not why you pick this up. You pick it up to ride POW and it kills the fluff but don't feel like you have to put it away when the snow firms, I haven't.
I'm giving this only 3 stars though for it's durability. No, I'm not the gentlest on boards but I'm on my second hovercraft this season. The first had an issue with the tail aluminum insert dis bonding and now my latest has the base dis bonding. These both happened after impacts with rocks but not overly damaging impacts or at least ones that haven't done the same to previous boards. The base Ptex mostly held up after each impact.
