I was hesitant to pull the trigger on this board at first. It's marketed as a big mountain board and not as an "all-around" board. I should NOT have waited. Let me explain why this is a five-star board all the way around.
This board handles any kind of condition. It crushes the ungroomed chop and spring slush. It carves icy hard pack, and it EXCELS in the powder. It's more flexible than the Custom or Custom X, so it floats way better in the deep stuff, comparably. The flat areas under the feet provide a super solid feel. Almost surreal.
There is more camber to this than the Custom or Custom X. That lends to being super springy. The early rocker makes it easy to butter on tip or tail. And remember, this is a directional twin, so you can ride it fakie just as well as forward. I wouldn't be afraid to take this in the park.
I had read some reviews that this board doesn't carve as tightly as others because of the less aggressive sidecut and the mid-width size. My experience is that this board will carve as tight as you can under any condition. Again, it's marketed as a "big mountain" board, but the reality is that it works anywhere.
If there is no new snow and you're taking laps in the park, maybe take your Custom X. Any other time, I would take this board. It rocks. If you want one board to rule them all, this is the one.
