Default Sick deal on an Arbor Element

I got a sweet deal on an Arbor Element. I was holding out and debating between the NS SL-r or Premier but now with this price Im not sure I can pass it up. Itd be an all mountain ride for me. Im an intermediate out east and my main question is the edge hold and carving with the Element. Both NS boards get great reviews on here but I rarely see too much about any Arbor boards. My search found recommendations but not a lot of first hand experience. How does the Arbor handle the crud? Is R.C. and Vario Grip worth holding out for?

Its a great camber all mountain deck, but somewhat outdated tech, hasn't changed up except for the graphics in 3-4 years. If you can get it for <$250 or so it might be worth it, otherwise I would hold out for an SL-R/Premier

Arbor is one of the few other brands i would buy myself. They make some pretty sick boards, i dont think you would be disappointed with the Element.

But as stated if you wanna try the new tech you gotta get a SL-R or somethin..

There's nothing wrong with a "traditional" cambered board. Arbors are rock solid and have super fast and strong bases...better than Never Summer even.

No need to fix something that ain't broke. The Element is a superb cambered all mountain board.

Get the Arbor. You won't regret it.

well i didnt get quite the deal i first thought... i had it on EMS for 315 shipped but as i was entering my credit card info and someone must have sniped me and got the last one. the site kicked me back saying it was no longer available. but then i found it on sierra for 347 shipped. so $150 off msrp. still pretty good. grabbed some Targas from sierra while i was at it. should all get here in time for my trip to Breck next week. im stoked.
