I rode this board for a couple of days in August of 09 at High Cascade in Oregon.
You wouldn't know that it is rockered from the way it holds an edge. I felt I could roll it way over and count on it to keep carving. But, the rocker makes the board spin effortlessly.
The asymmetric sidecut didn't feel odd, it just felt good. You know how usually your toe edge is solid, and the heel edge a little spooky in comparison? Not so the pickle. Both sides feel strong.
I'm going to try riding this as both a park board and as an all-mountain ride this winter. I think it will work that way.
This is based on just two days of summer riding, but other boards didn't feel nearly as solid in the same salted snow.
I'm on my 5th pair of Malamutes. These are the best boots I have ever worn; stiff, responsive, stiff, comfortable, stiff (did I say stiff?).
The liner doesn't pack much. There is a footbed that is almost as good as superfeet included in this boot.
I get 60-75 days of use on these boots, which is typical for snowboard boots for me. Those are long, ski patrol days. I'm 215 lbs, and hard on gear. I hike on rocks in these boots. Through all that these boots are comfortable, reasonably dry, and ride predictably.
