I meant I thought they had the parkblend they used to have, but it appears they have the same 30% as the Cartels....

Sooo....the difference is, what? Highback? Lame, B....lame.

That's what I was going to say, there is a lot of discussion about Malavita's here and most of it I've heard has been positive.

I wouldn't say we are pro Rome/Flux/Flow, there are Burton fans here, Union fans (yes they may be a minority), etc.

Just like for boards there's a great mix of various fans here.

I think people need to stop getting caught up in the brand vs. brand arguments.

What's the point of having a winged highback? What does it do? I read Cartels dig into your calf...but maybe that's old news. Sorry, I'm getting back into the sport and will have a lot of questions.

@poutanen - You're right it's probably only two or three people that go out of their way to hate Unions. They're very active though. I can't speak for the whole board.

@Triple8 I KNEW IT. I felt up some lichens a few months ago, and they felt the same as my 2012 Vitas but I thought they were pre-pro so I paid it no mind.

However, handflexing and riding are two different things.
