The crush is essentially a rockered kink, which is a jib board. I wouldn't expect either to be great at pow/large kickers. BTW, the fusion 1500 base is extruded, not sintered

If you're prepared to spend that kind of cash, why not just spend the extra $50 or so to get a top-of-the-line board? You'd have a wide selection of Never Summer, Lib Tech, GNU, ect... That's the decision I made when I got my board last year. I spent so long looking for a board around $400 and kept coming back to boards that were around $500, so I worked a few extra shifts and got the board I REALLY wanted. Of course it's all up to you, but that is just what I would do.

Sierra Snowboards has quite a few good boards in it's 50%-70% off section right now, also.

why spend $480 on a youngblood when you can get a blunt for $380
