the easy livin flyin v was more of a fave than the custom flying v. I felt it was more responsive and less "boat-like" if you know what i mean

Easy Livin was definitely a kick ass board. Thing is, the Custom is cheaper and I am perfectly fine with that board

I demo-ed the Easy Livin a couple of weeks ago. I have a hard time calling that one an all-mountain board. Maybe I should have given it more time since it was my first time on a rockered board. That board is really fun to mess around with, but I felt a lot more stable with my Darkstar. I saw suggestions for the K2 WWW... isn't that a park board?

For all mountain, the K2 Turbo Dream is their best rocker. The WWW is a park board with their Jib Rocker which is higher than their All-Mountain rockers.

This year was my firs time on rockers as well. Definitely takes some adjustments. The Easy Livin Flying V without a doubt killed the slopes. It isn't a true rocker, there is a camber under your feet with the Flying V. Plus Burton makes one of the most mellow rockers out there. You definitely should ride it more if you have the chance. I took a good 3 runs on that thing. I didn't want to get off of it lol

LT TRice 2010

Agree with TRice C2BTX. 5 days straight in Tahoe was pure joy. I will be writing a full review soonish. Stability/control at high speed, nimble in trees and moguls - carving felt like it was an extension of my body. Also, personal opinion: I think the graphics are some of the classiest in the Lib Tech line-up, and on par with any other brand (I like Forum's crisp simplicity, though I am not a fan of capita/nitro's graffiti style)

I'm going to have to agree 100%!!! I just rode my Rice 157 C2 for the first time on Friday and it seemed like it laughed at anything I could throw at it! I never really could warm up to my 154 TRS btx in hairy high speed situations, so it appears C2 is the real deal. BTW, I'm 5'5" 170.
