But honnestly, by "hand feel", i pushed before and after the cut and i feel it is considerably softer...of course its hand feel, not very scientific but not completely unrreliable.
Yes mine also felt softer with my hand, but when riding it didn't.

I'll post up the footage once I get it from my friend who I borrowed the go-pro from.

I love my board in powder or groomed runs it perfect for me. I got to ride to two great powder boards and they great fun on deep powder days, but I didn't like the extra lenght and weight on non powder days or tight tree runs.

My setup is perfect now for my riding.
