There's a link to my review of it somewhere in the review section.

Is it just me? The binders look like unions for some reason.

Detail,

Unless you EXCLUSIVELY jib, then whats the point of this board? It is beyond soft, if you hand flex one of these compared to a 1985 Artifact or Rocker WWW, there is simply no comparison between the Sub-Pop and either of those. These are recognized as generally the softest boards on the market, no longer. Because this thing is actually so soft, you dont have pop - it is whimsicall. Also how long of a ride life do you think a board has like that? 15-20 days? More, I wouldn't place my coin on it lasting longer than 50 days.

Why buy it when, there are so many better alternatives namely a Revolver-R or Evo-R?

And for the person who said BurtonAvenger loved the board obviously has the literacy level of a 5 year old. He said it was manageable at best.

I wasn't criticising the 390's at all, I love my pair and the only other binding I'd consider riding would be K2 Formula's.

Did you really just throw in the hand flex test?

No where in his review does he say it is manageable at best.I agree that this board is for hardcore jibbers only. and btw, saying someone has the literacy level of a 5 year old, adn then having your facts wrong, really makes you look bad.

I have one. Easily put thirty days or more on it. Still rides as good as the day I bought it. I don't see it dying anytime soon. I was pressing in pow off Imperial one day at Breck when I hit a rock. I was pressing and I hit a rock. Barely any damage. Nothing I'm worried about at all, the base on this board is crazy strong. And yeah it is softer than a noodle, but it rides surprisingly stiffer if you're not pressing.
