The only drawback is the edge hold, which is why it does not bomb runs very well. You can still turn easily, but it lacks the carving feeling of other boards.
I certainly recommend this board as an addition to your quiver, but not as a "do-it-all" board.
That sounds good, yeah I don't want to get rid of my Parkboard, it has good edge hold and carving fast is fun and stable. I like that it is plenty stiff enough for bigger jumps.

I am mostly looking at replacing my old Horrorscope with a slightly shorter jibboard, and I think either the jibboard or disaster would be good.
