Commenting on the board's performance on ice, she said, "I also believe it was detuned before I got it... It’s definitely rideable outside of the park but when I got the board it was detuned and it showed in it’s handling on any icy spot."

I think it's weird that she spends so many words lamenting it's performance on ice, only to mentions three times that the board was detuned. Say it once, qualify it appropriately, and leave it at that if the board's been detuned it's not really fair to talk about it being "bad on ice", that's like saying well yeah my tires are bald but this car sucks in the rain.

First off she is not the market for this board seeing how it is make more for a man being a midwide. I ride my blacklist everywhere from glades, moguls and park never washed out on an edge when engaged in a turn. Read BAs review he will also agree that it is a badass board.

^^^ agreed.

I did a review of this board too, floating around the forum here somewhere recently or on my site.

No problems noted on any ice/icy surfaces I've encountered. Grip Tech works.

That is exactly what I was thinking. I was just reading too much into it. I am just gonna fucking buy the thing. I know BA loved it and all you guys are loving it too, so there is no point in beating myself up about it.

I appreciate all the input.
