Default Reviewed: 08/09 Bataleon Airobic 147

Board: Bataleon Airobic 147
Bindings: 2-3 season old Flux Titans
Boots: 07/08 Salomon Dialogue Select
Stance: 21" 9/-9 with detuned tip/tail
Conditions: pow, groomed, moguls, packed powder, slush (rode it for 3 days prior to this review)
One word description: soft

My first park board, last boards were Rome Anthem and a Jibpan, which I only rode once or twice, it wasn't as soft as I would've liked. This board is softer than the Jibpan. Ollies are pretty good for a soft board. Butters and presses are so easy to do, I just need practice balancing. TBT didnt really take much time to get used to, really didnt notice it. It holds an edge well (keep in mind I said well not great), when carving blacks and blues, although there is the occasional chatter if you're going to fast or when you're speed checking/stopping. Catching edges are harder, but I still can when i'm not paying attention/screwing around. Weight-wise, out of the box i didnt notice any heft compared to the Jibpan, feels a bit lighter i believe. Haven't hit any boxes/rails yet with this board. Although this review isn't as comprehensive as more experienced riders, I hope this helps someone with their purchase.

*would not recommend this as a single quiver board*
