To be honest I havent ridden a vapor in quite a few years, and I just got off the '11 159 from the burton demo. Wow have they done quite an excellent job on this deck. It is a powerhouse of a ride that will eat up whatever you throw at it and spit it back out. It had a huge amount of pop that was still predictable even on the larger jumps. It held an edge like a race board and was able to bash through even the cruddies of runs. And it was hands down the best pipe deck ive ever been on.
There are two tragic flaws to this almost perfect deck, you will not be able to do a nose press (but who needs to when your riding main park at Mammoth), and secondly it works you, after only a few hours of riding the vapor I felt like i just ran a marathon, but maybe it was because I was having too much fun.
