Yes Snowboards the typo and great dudes of history

Hi,

has anyone tested the typo and the gdoh? What is the stiffest? What are the difference between them and their best use?

I have heard that the gdoh is pretty hard to ride and physical instead of the typo. But I am wondering on the quality of the typo.

Thanks

Really tough to find any info on Yes these days. I bought an Optimistic, and I`ll try it out on Saturday. I`ll make sure to put up my first impressions of the board after...

I'd like to try one out, but they're such heavy planks, and that serrated edge thing is so stupid.

Got to disagree with you trip8sol.

My friends 154 Bataleon ET isn't much lighter than my 154 GDOH.

As for riding it, maybe I suck but I found it fine to ride?

Correct about the serrated edge though, didn't seem to do anything (but I'm comparing this to the edge hold of my old 156 Burton CX).

I don't think my board feels heavy. It feels much lighter than my last board and is listed on thegoodride.com as "light". The first YES board from last year was on the heavy side, so I think that rep has stuck with them...

I picked up the Typo II (cam/rock) and just waiting for a little better coverage out there.

Not a heavy board at all. There's a few people I know that have ridden the Dudes board and love it.
