    Posted: Feb/06/2013 at 8:22am
I am talking to a guy who owns a 2010 burton easy livin. I am thinking about buying it but was wondering what people think of it? I have read the reviews but just thought i would test the field if anyone else would like to give their opinion. I have a Rome Mod 2012 and dont know if the easy livin would really fill a different roll in my quiver.   He says it camber but it has this graphic. 
Couldnt find reviews that had that graphic unless they are flying V. Please let me know if you have any info.

The easy livin replaced the uninc in 2010, and from what I heard, it was pretty close to the same board, I think it just lacked the carbon spine in it, which actually made the easy livin a bit less stiff.  I've never been on the easy livin, but the uninc is hands down my favorite board that I've ever ridden.  Some people complained that the easy living was less stiff, but I feel like the uninc is right on the edge of being too stiff, depending on what you want to use it for, so a little less might be nice.  

If the board geometry is the same, it should be a sick board, it has a really aggressive sidecut, kicked up tips (rides awesome through pow and chop), super poppy, and camber.  I love my unincs.

How much does he want for it?

This year it was camber and then I think they switched it up to flying v (not sure though). My buddy owns the same deck from that year and I have ridden it a few times. Feels like a classic camber burton deck witn a lower flex rating. "soft" enough to be playful but still rails...good overall board for sure.

it's definitely camber i rode it this weekend. i felt like it was about more of a 5 on the stiffness scale but im a little big for the board so its probably more of a 6. the thing is fast. i dont know what kinda sintered tech burton uses but the bases they use seem to be very fast and in my past experience they can take a beating. i have to get some time on the board in the park. it was snowing in CO so was chasing powder.

yeah Burton rates it a 4 I think but Burton's line is stiff cambered to others.  My Capita Midlife is rated a 6 on their scale and it is softer than my buddy's Burton Hero which is rated a two.
