I bought this board without even demoing it. I was alittle nervos at first but after the last week of riding it non-stop. I'm pretty impressed. Its got the perfect amount of flex for bombing thru mass's of fresh pow, its got pop for jumps and tricks, handles like a star on the rails and isn't to bad in the trees.
I figured this would be primarily a park board, but its been an all mtn super star with an extra star in the park.
One word of caution, if you board in icy conditions alot, it might not do "as well" but its still pretty good. No one does amazing on ice, well except the magna trac.
