Thanks guys!!! I want to get some more time on it before I make a proper review. I took it out for 3/4 laps on groomers with ice. It felt significantly different from the T7 but looking at the shapes side by side it's easy to see why.

Once I got into a rhythm it just downright hooked... I've never been able to carve so hard on my toeside than I did yesterday. It felt very foreign at first but once I sort of found the balance point I was able to lean right over and carve like a hardbooter!

The nose starts to ramp up from about the half way point between the binding and the tip, and the camber actually looks like it's less then the T7 (I'd say about 10mm of camber at the centre, while the T7 has more like 15), so I imagine it'll be excellent in the powder.

The nose is also significantly wider than a traditional shape, and I felt that at slower speeds. Not negative or positive, just different.

One thing I did notice was a racer training course setup beside me on some steep hardpack/ice. I ended up matching a skier turn for turn down this training course, at the same speed as him. Of course I wasn't turning nearly as hard as him but it was a VERY confident feeling board at speed on ice.

At the moment this board is better than me, and I'm really looking forward to learning it's traits and really letting it rip! At this point I won't take it off piste for a while, because it feels totally different than the T7, I'm affraid I wouldn't be in control so I've got to get more groomer laps under my belt before taking it in the trees.

I did hit a roller that I usually hit near the bottom of the Gold chair at Nakiska. It felt very comfortable in the air and landing was a breeze. It felt to be at least an equal to the T7 as far as air competence. Can't wait to take it out tomorrow for a full day!!!

Edit: I should also mention this was my first time on the older 2009 non-EST C60s... They obviously felt very similar to the 2010s, but the ankle strap is solid instead of two straps. They felt very locked in and seemed to be a good match for the board!
