So this board is got tons of pop... For being a 5 on the scale of flex. I think its wrong, more like an 8.. I couldn't really get into this board. I couldn't press on it. It is really light & fast, just couldn't carve with it, it felt weird. So overall this board just wasn't for me. It maybe be for you, but not for me. That is why i'm giving it 4 stars, cuz I can't hate on it. Hope this helps.
