06/07 O-Matic TR Snowboard
 
I was curious to find out as I no longer remember. Was the 06/07 O-Matic TR Snowboard strictly a park board or a board that was designed heavily for park use and maybe some light all mountain riding?

I tend to take mine for all mountain riding every now and again but I can definitely feel it gets fairly squirrely going down steeper hills such as black diamonds or trying to really get into some tight turns.

Anyone have any idea? I tried the googles but even there I'm having a hard time finding info out.

i have one too, its a freestyle board with carbon reinforcements between the bindings that help to stiffen it up and turn well on hard snow. The tip and tail are softer and at high speeds the can flex out. It really depends on the board size and your weight. Im 160 lb and i'd consider my 153 75% park 25% all mountain. I've ridden the 156 and its more stable for sure maybe 50/50. My buddy is 250 lbs and rides the 158 wide all over the mountain.

Thanks for the info! I run between 160 and 165 and ride a 153 myself. I think I'll stick to using this board more for park riding than anything else based on your answer...
