Well I'm currently looking for something a little stiffer than my NS SL-R. From what I'm reading, I think the Nitro Team Gullwing is actually a bit softer, which does me no good. Without being able to demo one or even handle one in person at the store, I most likely will be passing on it. Plus, Mervin and NS boards have the added bonus of some edge tech for better hold in icy/hardpack conditions.
How did it compare to the Slayblade? I know that's a pretty stiff/damp board. Did you ever try a Turbo Dream for comparison's sake?
