As an owner of both the Ply and the DH, you couldn't be more wrong when telling people to go for one over the other. They are COMPLETELY different boards aimed at completely different riders. The DH is a super-stiff, true cambered, all-mountain board. The Ply is a semi-stiff, tip-and-tail rockered, freestyle weapon. The DH is suited for bombing double blacks while the Ply is suited for hanging out in the park all day. Since you obviously endorse the-house.com, I suggest you make a more informed sales pitch next time.
