Pretty flexible, but not choppy at high speeds. Bought this board for my AK trip last year. Despite my first time in deep Pow, and riding a 149, it schralped quite well. Also performed well in the tight woods and bulletproof snow found in the ADKs. Overall, a great board for the buck.
BTW - There is no Magne Traction, and it is not a true twin. It is setback.
Flex Bindings are pretty comfy, but the toe ladder strap rounded over the first time I used it and doesn't tighten down. It's like screwing a rounded out, stripped screw. Burton could have definetly used better quality plastic for something so simple.
Just got the grass stain pants - the first pair of snowboard pants that fit me since the plain ol cheap Burton Pants of 7 years ago. Not too skinny...finally! I can stretch with snowboard pants on! BTW - I returned the grass stain as it is more of a wheat grass pea soup (very bright - a cross between yellow and bright green, not the muted beigy tan-ish green it looks like in the pic) and am awaiting the black.
Thought I'd break it in a jiffy, since the Feelgood ES (145) is like a wet noodle, but this board turns in the trees like a toothpick. Super light and flexible, all around a great board. My only gripe is that it has a good bit of chatter on solid surfaces. Unfortunately I'm in the Northeast where everything seems to be rock hard, so this board sees a lot of chatter.
I was really hopeful that the most waterproof and warm snowboard pants would be suitable for snowboarding, and the size small fit the waist and length, but the thighs were so small, I don't know how a snowboarder can even strap in wearing these pants. They got returned and my search continues for a decent pair of pants. Too bad Burton makes Foursquare and Special Blend. They ruin everything.
