Default Bataleon boards

Has anybody rode a Bataleon Undisputed 167? After hearing about them for the first time on here I checked one out at a local shop. Now 2 things. I gotta give the Supermodel 172 a chance, since I only took it out one day so far, and I need feedback from big guys like myself, because anything that will decrease my chances of catching an edge at the speeds I hit, is worthy of investigation... Let me know your experiences with Bataleon boards. Thanks!

Haven't tried that board specifically, but TBT is awesome. I'm riding a Bataleon Riot 159 and have used it two days this past weekend. Once I got used to it, it's fun as hell.

never rode one myself, but talked to guy riding one in the park and he swore he will never buy anything but bataleon tbt boards from now on. thats a pretty bold statement and speaks extremely highly for bataleon as a smaller company with dramatically less publicity competing with marketing departments like K2 and Burton

i would have to say TBT is great. i rode it for the first time
this past weekend and i was pretty skeptical as the edges arnt
even raised that much. but it really does make a difference.
seriously its just fun not having to worry about catching edges
as much while your pressing and doing ground tricks. i dont know
if its from the wax i did but it was really fast. the whole day
i only caught 1 edge and that was cause i totally F'ed up.

I really noticed it when traversing, since you don't have to lean as far, making it much easier on your quads/hammies. Also never felt the edge trying to catch when squeezing out that last bit of momentum on the flats.
