I rode the '13 Blacklist in February and bought the '12 Blacklist about two weeks later.

Plus just remember it's a park board and you're going to (probably) beat the shit out of it anyways, so the extruded is A) less expensive and B) easier to repair, even if you sacrifice a little bit of top speed. >> Reviews | Trip Reports | Commentary
