I didn't have any problems on landing kickers and it held together nice even on really sketchy landings. My only complaint is that I don't think it has that much pop which makes getting up on rails a little trickier. Maybe I should've gone with the 55. Either way it's a good board and holds an edge nice but I'll mostly use it for park rails and booters.
burton doesnt even have a flex scale, they have a "feel" scale which is different.
