The board is not nearly as stiff as my Donek Incline 160, yet holds a carve far better, displays zero chatter in any condition, and goes so fast that I simply wear a diaper every time I ride it. I wait with baited breath for another soft boot carving board/BX board from Virus. Frank, if you're reading this--send a demo of the new UFC to Telluride for my enjoyment...please????.. Excellent construction and beautiful board. Cheers."
That's actually very helpful as I used to ride a Donek Incline 155 cm and that was a *stiff* board (seriously people on this forum don't understand how stiff some board can actually be), the Rad Air Tanker 172 cm I had was much easier to ride in comparison. It obviously was great for carving, ok in the park... but was terrible in powder.

I found that German review as well, but found it lacking in details I desired. This has bumped me up to a "maybe" pending further research.
