OVERALL COMMENTS: Super responsive, great sidecut, easy turn initiation. I can only imagine how it would perform in powder!

RATE THE FLEX FROM 1 TO 5:     4

FLEX COMMENT: Stiff but still forgiving on inconsistent snow conditions.

RATE STABILITY THROUGH TURNS:    4

STABILITY THROUGH TURNS: Very powerful board. Stable even with such a short tail.
