Okay, I only spent 1 1/2 hours on it and conditions were not optimal, but I have ridden enough different, high-quality boards (Bataleon Goliath, Head iCT Intelligence, Head iCT Team) to get a feel for this board offer an opinion.
If you read the rest of the reviews on here, you'll find that the common pros are speed, maneuverability, pop, price, and just an overall enjoyable riding experience. The only con, so far, has been a topsheet that scratches easily.
All I can say after my 90+ minutes on it is that I am really looking forward to spending a lot more time on it next year. I'm certain it's going to be a great off-trail board. It appears to be very versatile, but I've got an alpine board for when I want to just carve. It is very fast. It took a couple of runs to adjust to the squirreliness of the reverse camber combined with the sintered base, but once adjusted, what a blast.
I can't see myself reaching a skill level that I couldn't enjoy this board, and I think I'm a competent boarder now. I'm not a park guy, so I don't know what pop is, but I like trees and bowls and playing around on the groomers, and this board will suit me fine. My only concerns are the topsheet softness and it's effect on the board's overall durability and what the long-term durability of the base and sides will be.
In the meantime, I'm going to enjoy every minute I have finding out the answers to my questions. Thanks.
