it's worth it, I've been riding it a few weeks now and it's not holding me back and does what I want it to do. Carves well, pops awesome, butters nice. I love it.
A quick comparison to the park pickle of the same size (I know, the pickle is a rocker, but it's the only other park board I've tried recently), the pickle demands more work and the heel edge just sticks to the slope like it's glued, which is weird and.. cool I guess. I get higher ollies with a pickle and more stable with the pbj. It's like this: The pbj goes where I think about going, whereas the pickle goes there before I've had the chance to consider. When I hit a few kickers I really found myself higher in the air with the pbj. However, this was all with different bindings and stance width.
Hope this was of some help.
