Has the edge hold been improved at all? I haven't heard great things about burton's frostbite edges. And what would be better for an all mountain/freestyle board? This or the K2 Raygun?

The frostbite edges are very minimal, you really have to look closely to see it. I wouldn't say its anything close to Magnetraction, but it does help out a bit. Based on my knowledge and experience, I would recommend this board over the Raygun as far as the edge hold is concerned. Aside from the frostbite, Burton also engineers the wood grains in their cores to have a more effective energy transfer to the edge under your feet. The process also has a dampening system called smooth ride that might help with chatter and as a result give you a better edge hold on rough terrain. The Flying V-shape is also awesome for All terrain Freestyle. I know a bunch of people that ride this shape and are totally stoked on how it floats in the pow but it still pops well on lips and ollies, a true "all-around" feel. The Raygun is a more conventional reverse camber shape, which will be "softer" feeling than the Process, making it float well in pow, but may not be as poppy and stable at high speeds. Hope this helps!
