Honestly, no idea. Not that I dislike Burton, I just havn't touched one of their decks in awhile. However, it does not surprise me that the Air is noticably stiffer than the Bullet. If memory serves right, the Bullet is a "lower-end" model than the Air (correct me if I am wrong on that one). Usually the all-mountain freestyle decks (i.e. the air) that are on the "higher-end" tend to be a bit stiffer. Usually this is because the more expensive decks tend to be for more "experienced" riders, and thus a touch stiffer.
