Been on one for the last 2 seasons, previous years X8 but not a ton of changes..
Super fast base, honestly for a park board it's pretty sick.
Lightweight. It's nowhere near vapor light but still lighter than almost all my buddies boards (not a huge selling point, but just pointing it out)
Cambered. Holds an edge really well and is very stable at high speeds for a "park" board.
Lots and lots of pop.
Bad: (or less than ideal in some situations)
Not that soft (the flex rating is a little misleading). This isn't a rail specific board. Nor is it a great board for buttering.
ICS Channel. To get the most out of it you'll need to buy EST bindings, which are more expensive. There's a few manufactures that make an adapter plate for this, and you can run other burton bindings on it, but it's an ICS mount so you might as well go with the EST bindings.
It's a fun enough board for me to keep around for BoarderX races due to the base (that is saying something for a park board) and hitting the larger jumps, but due to the flex and camber it's not very playful for the rail/butter stuff. The board in the picture is not a V-Rocker shape, it is cambered.
