Default Burton Process???

I've been looking at some Burton boards recently and the 2011 Process caught my eye. Does anyone know anything about it or have any opinions on it? Because there isn't much about it on the web and from what I've read, it looks like a pretty standard cambered board.

Would anyone like to add some insight?

Thanks

Do you not want a rockered version? I demoed the V-Rocker Process and it was a decent board. I like Burton's V-Rocker shape. It's playful while not being too loose. The only thing I did not like about the Process was the stability. It is a softer side of medium flex so taking down a steep run is not an option. It can be done, but it's sketchy. However, if you are looking to mess around and cruise, it is actually a great board.

For that price range and target riding style, I'd recommend the K2 Raygun instead. Great all-mountain board for the price. It's about $40 cheaper than the process and I feel is the better board. More stable than the Process, and K2's all-mountain rocker is awesome. Flatline between the bindings and rocker through tip and tail.

If you already have a set of Burton EST Bindings, then stick with the Process. Otherwise, I'd look at the Raygun.

To back up what Leo said...if you don't already have EST bindings (and you want rocker) check out the Raygun. That thing rides better than any other $350, hands down. If you are going to go Process with EST bindings, you'll be spending $570ish.

If you really want camber (and aren't sure about investing in EST bindings) check out the Burton Deuce. It's a step down from the process ($20 cheaper) but you won't have to drop $170 to get some EST bindings.

Throw your Cartels on a Custom Flying V or a Sherlock if you want a hybrid midflex all mountain deck. If you want a little softer checkout the easy livin

Dude, the easy livin is a 4/10 park board. I think you need a noodle instead of a park or all mountain
