__________________________________________________ ___________________________________
The 2008-2009 O-Matic Benatar Snowboard key features:

IntelligentCoreTM - This is constructed by vertically laminating poplar stringers together. The poplar stringers are strategically placed down the center of the wood core to provide a torsionally more rigid and quicker feel edge to edge.

Biaxial construction - The strands of fiberglass are positioned in 0/90 degree directions. This specific lamination increases the board's stability at high speeds while maintaining a consistent, forgiving flex throughout the board.

Carbon VbeamTM structure - O-Matic's V shaped carbon placement provides a direct link from the rider to the board's contact points for added stability, fast turning initiation and more pop for higher ollies.

PROFILE: Directional
RIDING STYLE/TERRAIN: All Mountain
BASE: Sintruded
CORE: IntelligentcoreTM
SIDEWALL: VertwallTM
SIDECUT: DualradialTM
Stance: Setback 2.0cm
- Biaxial Fiberglass
- VBeamTM carbon
- Women's freeride flex pattern - medium/stiff
- 4x4 inserts

Available in 144, 147 , 149, 152 cm sizes

And here is some website with some pics and symbols that I have no idea how to decipher:

Maybe you will have better luck making sense of this than I am

Any idea what all of that is about?

EDIT: I'm sorry for being so anal about this, it's my first snowboard.

P.S. I am still trying to get my toe breaks down, so I don't know if I will do much park. I like riding switch though; while going down the mountain.

EDIT #2: The stance setback is only 2.0cm, that doesn't sound like much to me. I do want to focus more on mountain, getting some speed, etc. On the Lo-Fi, I felt every single bump beneath the board when I was starting to gather a bit of speed. Is that normal?
