Hi Phazon,

The ET 154 will be an incredible choice.

Thanks!

Hi Wiredsport,

I just purchased an ET! However I've seen a few reviews come out for the Arbor Blacklist 2012 and they seem to rate this board extremely high? Have you had a chance to ride this board and perhaps how it may compare to the ET?

Hi JVee,

The Blacklist 2012 is a reverse camber park deck for the upcoming season. I have not ridden it. Reverse camber (rocker) boards typically have a feel that is very far removed from TBT (all of which are cambered). Arbor puts a lot of love into their boards and I would assume that the Blacklist is a great example of a rockered design.

Here are some quick notes on the different board profiles and some general thoughts on what you might expect from each:

Hi Barry,

Last year we received Bataleon towards the end of August and we are anticipating the same this year. STOKED!

Hey Wiredsport! What Bataleon board would you recommend for all mountain riding on the east coast? Not looking into park riding just a board to ride the mountain. The board should handle black diamonds and ice. Was thinking of a ET but maybe to soft so a Goliath? What would you recommend?

Hi Tomek,

Possibly the Goliath, but let me know maore about your riding. Are you mostly carving/speed/surface rider or are you more into airs and maneuvers? Also, if you could provide a weight and shoe size that would be great.

Thanks!

Sure no problem. I'll use the board for mostly riding down the mountain. I have a Capita Ultrafear that I love but that thing isn't working for me on black diamonds and icy conditions. So looking into something more all mountain that can handle those runs but also be a fun chill ride down. I also have a Burton UnInc. that I use for freeriding (might sell to get a Omni/Enemy/Undisputed/Capit Black Snowboard of Death) so already have two boards. Just looking into getting a third that's right between those two boards. Won't hit boxes or rails but might hit a small jump if anything.

Thinking of getting a Goliath, ET (might be too soft) or Riot. I'm 165 lbs and wear a 10 boot size.
