Just wanted to add some chit about my Brotaleon. Rave about for many features, but mostly just the simple concept of TBT.
Only thing is, I wished my Omni 158 had a tad stiffer flex for high speed capabilities & feel nonetheless. I like total control with the mach speeds... Although, this mid flex range has helped my @ss land a lot more than I would with a board that had NO TBT & a stiffer flex. It is forgiving 100% when needed, and for most riders, I think it makes total sense for an all around mountain stick.
TBT is the truth. If you guys are park studs, and you don't have a Bataleon, you are missing out. That is & will be the biggest market no matter what for a TBT board IMO.
The other thing is, I like the quick turn in the glade runs, and the low drag on the catwalks which make me wave by others in slow-mo.
Even though, I want a Capita FK'N Awesome, Jones Flag & the new GNU Billy Goat(w/ CB3) for other reasons... I may ride TBT for the rest of my life if I just only could have one board.
TBT all-mountain sleds are the true hybrid. My Omni 158 purely just cruises on flat or steep descents... and can curve in the pow, bump & corduroy all the same with ease. Also, the soft front wide tip on the Omni is definitely a notable feature for those who are pow freaks.
