Thumbs up

I just rode my new Blacklist 154 today,paired up with Cartel Restricted Reflex Bindings......
Great Board!!! Keep in mind this is the first reverse cambered board I've ever ridden .
I have always ridden fairly stiff decks(Custom X 158W, Supermodel 163)
It only took 1/2 of a run to get used to it.
The only downsides I could find was it didn't hold as much speed through the flat sections of the resort,but that was to be expected. Being reverse cambered, It also didn't give you that snap at the end of a carved turn like a trad. camber would. I rode it in Pow (less than a foot deep),packed pow,chopped up pow, and groomers with ice .
Made in Austria at the Elan factory.
Very fun ride.
