OVERALL IMPRESSION FROM  1 TO 10:  Radical (10)

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: How responsive and fast edge to edge it was.

WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: It was a little catchy on inconsistent snow or ruts. That being said, I just had to adapt to the aggressive side cut and anticipate what would make it catch and then it ripped!

RATE THE FLEX FROM 1 TO 7:   5

RATE STABILITY THROUGH TURNS:   5
