Ride Kink?

Anyone have experience with the kink? looks like a pretty sweet little board, that i wanna keep in mind for next season
(other hopeful is the capita stairmaster)

Questions:

Too soft for all mountain riding (east coast blacks)?
Hold its own out of the park?
Compared to the Stairmaster?

general opinions are certainly welcome

peace

I had a ride kink few seasons back .. this was pre mtx and btx but at that time it was the best board id ever had. Ride boards can also take a pounding .. I rock jibbed that thing and rode through the parking lots routinely and it still held up.

I have an 09 155 kink,I like it softer than my dominant. It's hold pretty well on groomers. i also ride in the ice coast, but I wouldn't take it on ice coast black's, remember it comes with a 3 degree bevel, which might be sketchy on ice.
