This board is silly. The graphic is absolutely insane and with Jumper Cables this board has mad pop and is also still mad buttery. This board can do it all from hitting big kickers to rails and boxes or just straight ripping the mountain. Yes they did change the channel to M6 and it sucks they don't give the hardware to convert older EST, but they are giving you the hardware if you contact Burton. The plus side of the M6 is they are now compatible with other binding's on the market outside of Burton. There is one thing I found out about this board that most people don't know and I think Burton snuck it in last minute on us they say this board is a V-Rocker but when you check the board and the sticker on the back is say's Flying V. It has a very slight positive camber under your feet but V-Rocker in the middle so you get the best of both worlds. If your looking for a board to slay it all this is the board. One more thing if you decide to go EST go for the Cartel EST Acid Test it matches the board to the T and they got rid of that annoying forward lean this year. They basically are last year's P1's. SICK SET UP!!!!!!
