Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: True to size

Bought these in Chamonix for easy rock routes and am quite disappointed . Not nearly as sticky as Guide Tennies and the toe block folds as one in holds so does not feel smeary or precise. Scarpa Vit. that my partner was using looked better. The worst I am afraid was on the descent where the material eye loops base sewn into the boot produces a lump which sits over my little toe bone, so after an hours descent is very painful. Not too impressed as I thought they would be great

Sad to say, this board is a huge disappointment, I am 6,1 and 88 kg and it just feels too short. You don,t seem to be able to get the rear binding far enough back to create enough lift. All the euro models i have seen are very poorly made and the tip clips just keep popping open even when boarding in semi hard snow, the two halves do not fit neatly increasing the pressure on both the bindings and the clips. After two tours, 6 hours of climbing and and 2 hours of decent the top sheet separated from the base and it started delaminating along the edges. Its too soft at the tip and stalls rather than riding above or punching through crud. Very tempted to go back to my 6 year old Voile. Burton have replaced it ( 2 days ago) but the new board is as badly made. We will see...
