Thanks for the quick reply!
You´re probably right about the extra cm edge. One of the reasons I asked was that it seems to be a great deal of boarders that down-size (and riding boards which they are in the top of their weight spans) and feel that this extra softness really help them to play around. Especially all-mountain boarders with medium flex boards.
Needless to say - I spent my shear of time reading about this
I also noticed that some seems to have some difficulties pressing when they weight-matched their Custom FV boards. But maybe it's lack of skills thats keeping their tips down?
