my impression was the BSoD was geared more for charging while the slasher was primarily designed as a powpow stick.

Not sure about this years models but I ride an 05 BSOD and for straight up riding, no tricks I haven't had one complaint.Handles anything you can throw at it pow, ice, groomers, slush and isn't bad in the air either.

The BSOD from '05 compared to this year's is very different. This year's model has Freeride FK, which has camber between the feet and flat kick on both the tip and tail. It also has Death Grip which is an extra contact point on the waist of the board. I believe it is also softer. Besides the graphics, I don't think there's any difference between the '11 and '12 models. Another board you might want to consider for next year is the Totally Fk'n Awesome. It also has Freeride FK and is considered the BSOD's little brother.
