I wholeheartedly disagree. Yes the Raptor is a hard charger but it's edge hold on groomers is amazing. Really good if you want to startllaying down some deep carves. And speed... Sooo stable at speed. By 10am when it gets all chopped up it keeps going. Even the late afternoon crud is well absorbed keeping you stable on high speed groomed runs. then when your local spot gets a good dump it rides really well in the deep. I'd say it's worth a look. That said... I'venever ridden the TD .
