I have both the Flying V and the 2012 T. Rice Art of Flight edition. I have yet to ride the Flying V. So far, the Rice I feel is a lil bit sluggish during tree runs but maybe it was because of the bindings I had on . It charges hard, damp when landing jumps and stable at high speeds.
When the season starts here in Ontario I lend you my thoughts. I had a 2010 Custom V Rocker before I got the Flying V. The V Rocker was an all around board but unstable which I didn't mind.
