I demoed it. I don't understand the hype. It wasn't a bad board by any means, just not as good as the hype. I also felt that the asymmetrical hooblah is gimmicky. That could be due to my forward lean on my bindings though. The pickle did have good pop though. Handled well enough on hardpack/ice/groomer/little powder <---- only in Michigan will you see all these conditions on the same run

Would I recommend this board? Probably not. For the price, there were just so many other boards that were much more fun to ride. The Burton Custom Flying V and ELFV stomp all over this board. Ride Machete butchers it. K2 Turbo Dream leaves it in the dust. Choices choices.

Moral of the story: Park Pickle = Overrated

GNU? Cough up more dough and grab the Rider's Choice.

I haven't ridden the 2010 so I have no comparisons. The rep didn't mention any changes so I'm guessing it is the exact same board. Either way, nothing stood out about this board to me.

2010: Btx
2011: C2btx

I have nothing but good things to say about the 2010 pickle, so I can't imagine adding C2BTX will hinder my view on the board. (Assuming that's the only difference.)

Don't get me wrong, there isn't really anything bad about the board. It's a solid board. The problem lies in its competition for the 2011 season. This is the same reason why I was disappointed in the Flow boards. Burton, Ride, and K2 have excellent boards and new tech. The pickle does not stand out of the crowd. I'd easily take a Ride Machete over the pickle. Even a K2 Darkstar.

The 2011 is not C2BTX, it is still just BTX.

The guy in the video specifically says 'camber, reverse-camber rocker', which implies C2BTX. Guess not and I can't seem to find any information on it regarding the tech as of now.
