It was not even a fall but more of a slide.

And don't worry, I wont charge for my art this time.

SOOOOOO that's why when I rode the 154 it was one of the greatest boards I've ever been on? I weighed 140lbs then by the way...

^ agree till you ride the board any review does not do the board justice and it rides like a smaller board.

I think they are all made in Austria at the Elan factory(my A Frame was).

so Arbor will make this model again in 2013 im assuming?...

if so what are your thoughts on it, can it get any better? worth going for the 2012 version or waiting out for a 2013 model?

I have a 2013 sitting here. They didn't change anything and that's fine by me.

Thumbs up

I just rode my new Blacklist 154 today,paired up with Cartel Restricted Reflex Bindings......
Great Board!!! Keep in mind this is the first reverse cambered board I've ever ridden .
I have always ridden fairly stiff decks(Custom X 158W, Supermodel 163)
It only took 1/2 of a run to get used to it.
The only downsides I could find was it didn't hold as much speed through the flat sections of the resort,but that was to be expected. Being reverse cambered, It also didn't give you that snap at the end of a carved turn like a trad. camber would. I rode it in Pow (less than a foot deep),packed pow,chopped up pow, and groomers with ice .
Made in Austria at the Elan factory.
Very fun ride.

I wax my blacklist with some hertels hot sauce wax and I feel it helped keep my speed up in the flats. I also keep the board on edge more when riding in the flats to have less friction on the snow.
