WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD? Carving performance. Fast and incredible edge hold / drive.
WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD? Setback camber doesn’t like the crud, but who does right
OVERALL COMMENTS: OUR MOST IMPORTANT QUESTION!  Carving groomers my speed tolerance was the limiting factor, not the board. So solid on edge hold and drive. The front rocker and back camber are great hybrid. Snaps ollies with eaze and can handle switch turns. Would be stoked to rip this in deep snow. Proper width firmly taste. I rode slightly narrower stance vs my normal all mtn stance. Beautiful top sheet wood. Flex is medium and playful but feels strong when you need it.
