HMMMM … kind of want this to replace my blacklist , plus being military you guys make the boards right up my ally.
I checked w/ Avran from angrysnowboarder.com
(Burton Avenger) to get a comparison between the Blacklist (which he has put a lot of time on) and the Franken. He says that the flex pattern is almost the same. the sidecut is different so turn initiation is also different, but you'll like it. Overall verdict? You'll be happy, especially with the e3 base.
