I just bought a Bataleon Omni and I'm enjoying it. The triple base technology really helps in preventing the accidental catching of an edge and I'd recommend it to any new rider. As an intermediate rider, I found that there was an adjustment period to get used to the TBT as I kept washing out the tail of the board on turns over icy surfaces. I've never riddern a reverse camber board like the Custom flying-v. I'm probably going to pick up a lib-tech or a Gnu later in the season because I'm particularly interested in using the magnetraction edges (as well as C2BTX).
