Second Board.. Experienced Rider
I would demo a full rocker first. Even with the grip tech I never felt fully comfortable on the coda on hard pack. Even though it's a lot of fun on soft snow days.
I'm sure this is partially due to my own riding tendencies as i tend to nose dive. For reference I adjusted enough to ride ns rc profile confidently on all conditions. Even a friend's banana magic !btx! With minimal non continuous rocker zone helped with the way a center reverse board felt.
