I just got a 152 shiv and have not had any problems with it it is very poppy and its soft, flexing it is very easy. Great overall park board and it rips the rest of the mountain too. Maybe a little too soft for powder though. Haven't washed out on a jump yet!

I have a 148 Shiv and so far so good. Had a DC PBJ before and felt it was better landing jumps. I did ride the Shiv on the pipe and it handled pretty well, was very surprised. The Shiv is also much buttery and easy to do spins on flatland. ParkRat, did you detune your edges or not? It seems the edges are pretty sharp all the way around unlike some boards that come factory detuned.

No i have never detuned my edges before and I think so too.. The edges are pretty sharp all the way around.
