OVERALL IMPRESSION FROM  1 TO 7:  6

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: It’s quickness from edge to edge!

WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: Not enough pop! It felt great until you tried to get it off the snow.

OVERALL COMMENTS: My first run I thought I was going to hate this board, but after some binding adjustments this board began to sing! It is such a rapid turner with that narrow nose! It is just asking to be ridden through some pow filled trees and slashes up on banks like you’re riding a wave.
