I managed to get this board on sale a couple of years ago when the Vapor first came out. I was tempted to buy the Vapor but I figured I'd save some money and go with the T6. I am so glad that I did! Going from my old board to my new one was like night and day! This board is super responsive and is extremely fast! It cruises on the flat spots when everyone else is walking and feels amazing in powder! Even over ice it grips to its edges so you won't wipe out! Two years later my board still looks good! The alumafly core ensures that it will stay in good shape for a long time! If you're a freestyle rider this board's not for you cause it has minimal flex. But if you're into all-mountain riding like me, I highly recommend this board!
