WAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYY to soft, and the bronze edges dull super fast and dont hold for shit. theres a number of flexy all mt boards that will do a decent job everywhere you go. but the artifact is meant to hit jibs all day.

probably one of the worst sticks to take out of the park. I could probably bend that thing in half without too much effort

yea man i had a friend who let me test it out b/c he wanted to trade me back to his old uninc he sold me. way to soft. it's real fun to play around with but i would not feel safe in back country pow. nor flying down groomers as fast as i can for that matter.

I have an Artifact 1985. I thought the same thing that it would be to soft for all mountain. Ive always used my Arbor Mystic for all mountain riding. I started using the Artifact a lot more this season and I have to say its perfectly fine for me all around. I can hit double blacks at full speed, 6-8ft kickers and holds better in ice than my Arbor, which needs to be sharpened. The edges will dull faster, but since the boards still pretty new, Im very surprised in how well it holds.

Artifact's are WAY too soft to take all mountain, but I still do it anyways. It's fun and flexy, but there's NO stability at high speed and you REALLY gotta work to keep it up in the pow.
