I'm probably late to the party, but if its anything like a CX or T6 and the reviews you guys are posting, I'd be down to pay 600 for a board like this.
Not late yet! Just waiting on info back from the company organizing it... I've said we've got at least 5 interested so we've still got time to firm up numbers with him after.
I haven't tried the Kessler but if you read Dice's review thread (link in the first post) it seems right in line with the T6. Keep in mind I'm a T7 rider looking for something at least as good!
Only thing I'm not sure about is the construction. I know 99% of boards these days are wood cored, but I'm a fan of metal cores and really like the feel of the T7. It was also damaged when I moved out west, then driven over by an SUV at one of the ski hills this year, and it still rides like the day I bought it.
Based on it's heritage, it should be a board that can carve with the best of them!
I'm getting antsy so if I do hear back soon I'll get on their case again.
