I LOVE THIS BOARD!
I took the Raptor out to Blue Mtn this past Saturday. it was all slush in all the trails, but it was still a breeze charging down, especially thru the double blacks since the edgehold on this board grips as advertised. the contact pro's felt perfect for it as well.
during high speeds, i didnt feel/hear the board chattering compared to the Cobra.. i'm definitely keeping this bad boy for a while.. got Stratton lined up this Sunday, so we'll see how it goes.
did i mention that I LOVE THIS BOARD!
