I was hoping to get a TRS BTX C2 but they were out so I got this instead. The topsheet takes some getting used to since it looks like a bass boat but the ride is excellent. I'm coming off a GNU Altered Genetics MTX the dampening is definitely improved and looking down the side...if this were a piece of lumber you sure wouldn't buy it. Nevertheless rode it the first day in the 22' half pipe at Mammoth Mountain and it felt real good. Rode it the second day in 16" pow and if you are 200+ you better get more than a 57 if you plan on riding powder. Rides like a skateboard on the hard stuff but not like the mullet in the pow.
