I've gone through three decks this season. I started with a proper all-mountain deck. But, I also wanted a freestyle deck, so I got one. It wasn't as soft as I was expecting, but it was so much fun I sold my proper all-mountain deck, and started using my new "freestyle" deck also as an all-mountain. The problem was, I still didn't have the soft, buttery freestyle deck that I had orgionally wanted. So then I bought a Rome Graft. It was just what I wanted. But there was a problem. It was too much fun. I started taking it out, not only as my park-ride, but also as my "all-mountain"deck. This started happening more and more, until it was all I was riding. Even on double-blacks. My friend has a Burton Custom. We traded decks for a few runs. He was HORRIFED at how soft my board was, couldn't handle at speed, and was like "How the hell do you bomb hills on that thing?"
