I think the 57 DBX is based on the BSOD if memory serves. Which is softer and more lively than the TFA anyway.
Basalt does have a higher tensile strength than glass. The strength is your only noticeable difference in a snowboard. The stresses you're putting the fibers under arwnt otherwise enough to demonstrate any toher characteristic difference from glass.
Is it worth the extra $150 or whatever? If you snap boards a lot maybe, otherwise I genuinely dont think it rides $150 better than glass.
That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
