Default Nitro Ultimate ...HighTech or Gimmick

Hi Guys,

a few days ago i "stumbled" over a Board, the "Nitro Ultimate and its "new" tech , the Koroyd Core. 2015 will be the 3rd year of this tech and Board ?!.. i am not a Nitro guy, i own Lib Tech; GNU; Jones and Burton Boards so, i didn't knew that.

The core is made of vertically lined miniature tubes (co-polymer) welded together for better absorption of any kind of impact/vibration and is 70% lighter than a wood core..

Koroyd

to me, looks a little bit like the former times Burton AlumaFly Core which has been used in the Burton T6.. ??
my 2nd Board 2008 was a T6 with a C60 on it
nice for carving and straightlining everything but hard to flex and susceptible...
and: the alumafly is aluminum, not plastic !


...Is this a great new tech, what if you have the bucks to get it, will make a perceptible difference ??
or is it just a nice gimmick and feels "dead" underfoot , breaks easy or is "worn out" after one season..??


so, its your turn !
What do you think about that !?

Tech has been around for 3 years and no one else has ripped it off yet? Probably a gimmick. New tech spreads like wildfire if it actually works, patents be damned.

I've ridden it. It makes for an interesting ride. The dampening you would expect is gone so it's like vibrations resonate back up into your feet. Damn it's light though.
