Im new to the sport so not much experience with boards but I bought a 09/10 for this season. I've been out twice this year and will be out this weekend.
It is much softer than my old lib tech, sorry I don't know the model. It gripped much better than my old board in our man made snow.
I liked the flex but I am still not used to it. Once I get some more time on it I can add more info
