I dont know too much about the 09 Se7en but i have an 08 one and dont think they have changed much. Here are some facts from what i have read about the se7en every year and my own experiences... Pros: sweet graphics, medium flex, says its a park board but its good for everything, responsive yet easy to press, when waxed it is pretty fast. Cons: the base seems to get beat up really easily in the park (2 core shots and an edge that bent off the board but was an easy fix with epoxy, and it doesnt hold wax too well. Overall i like my se7en but i also spend a lot of time waxing and tuning it to keep it in good condition. Since i got a burton custom i use it as my park board so i do not care as much if the base gets beat up pretty badly.
