I went yesterday and here is a few things that I noticed. My setup is lighter than my buddies new DC board not sure what the model is but is has a dead fox or cat on the base. Although thats prolly the only thing that makes my setup better lol. On my 3rd run down I went down a black diamond and made it down without a problem however I did have alot of edge chatter on that run so I'm thinking that the new boards are alot stiffer. I also wish that I had a new set of bindings the new setups just seem so much more stable and no foot slide like I have in my current baseless bindings.
