Light, responsive. Lots of baseplate padding. What more do you want? One of the best toe straps around for sure. The ratchets are a bit sticky, but never a problem on the hill. Comparable to Rome 390s or Burton Cartels in terms of flex & response, but the stiff aluminum baseplate is not for everyone. Built like it'll last forever.

Rome has been killing it for a while now with their sticks, and the Graft is no exception. Awesome mid-soft flex that's buttery smooth, but not soft enough to rob your carving confidence. The sidecut feels much mellower than most other snowboards I've been on (discounting strictly jib decks), tracks straight. Great pop. Very fun board for park and all mountain freestyle that could sell for a lot higher than it does.

There is pretty much nothing that will beat the edge to edge quickness of the CX. The response is so lively and instantaneous you'll just laugh as you mach carve your way down. Great pop on both ends. The deck has a great lively flex but it's definitely on the stiffer end of things, so it would be best to stay away if you're in the beginning stages. This deck rarely changes much year-to-year, so pick this one up at a discount and shred it next year.

The suit's a great midweight base layer (very similar, if slightly thicker, than Burtion midweights for reference) and the material is everything you would want in a midweight base layer, warm, wicking, etc. The fit for this year's is kind of strange, though, with a pretty long torso. The rainbow flap is a good idea in theory, but in actuality, the zipper just chafes your ass and tends to rip pretty easily. I had mine modified to take the zipper out, quite frankly even if you have to take a dump you're not going to use the flap. Still, this is pretty much my first layer of choice for any day in the EK.

If you don't know what you want, don't get these. If you have to ask yourself if the Drivers are a fit for you, they're likely not. In fact, if you are the kind of person who would love these boots, you are likely not even reading this. A common mistake is for people to just look at the pricetag and determine whether a boot is "good" or not, instead of analyzing the attributes. Don't get me wrong, these are amazing if what you want (and you need to know exactly what you want) is INSTANT response and ultra-stiffness in your boots, and it serves a certain segment. For the rest of us though, it might be better to stick with boots that have some flex at the ankle.
