Does anybody feel that TBT has pros or cons to all the rockers coming out next season? Everyone seems to be on the rocker tech now. I think TBT is different since its shape is kind of like a double ended spoon (page 12-13 of the 2010 online catalog) whereas the rocker/camber combo seems flat across the width of the board regardless of the angle when in rocker or camber.

pros-
just like riding a normal cambered board
added security of not catching an edge as often
can land a spin off-angle off a big kicker and be able to recover
makes riding fun and playful
ride flatbased and be stable
ego

cons-
maybe more wear on the wax
needs custom stone grinding
ego


edit:
after i got my evil twin i tried my friend's skate banana, hated it. i feel TBT just makes everything more smooth and flowing (edge to edge is just silk, i could almost say it makes groomed trails flow like powder)

Good catalog. Some of the graphics are ok, but last year was better. The smiley face Evil Twin board is sweet.

I like the ET for its specs but the graphics turn me off. I wish the Airobic was at least sintruded. The horse photography on the Violenza has got to go! Seriously, what the hell were they thinking? All they did was take a photo of a horse in black and white and slapped a logo on it.
Bataleon's are pretty expensive so shouldn't all their boards at least be sintruded? They need to stop making extruded base boards b/c they don't take hits very well and they're s l o w

I think the Violenza has a horsey cause girls want a pony. They did the same thing with the mutli animal graphic on the 08 version.

Cool catalogue gotta agree though some of the board graphics are a lil gay. How sick is that second last photo "Smile! its snowboarding". I want it for a background!

Some people in another thread recommended the goliath or the jam for me as I don't ride park, but in their catalog they're listed as freestyle boards. How are the omni and enemy for all mountain boards?

When Bataleon refers to one of their boards as 'Freestyle' they are referring to the type of TBT base it has. Twin, Freestyle, and freeride TBT respectively. IMO the freeride boards are setback a bit much for all round freestyle all mountain riding. Its all explained on the website.
