Default 2012 DC PLY, anyone tried?

I am in New Zealand, and we get the 2012 release of boards now ready for our snow season. I have been looking at the DC PLY 153.75. I am wondering if anyone has riden it? what is the combination of traditional and flat camber like to ride? Torstein seems to be absolutely killing it on this board.

Well the short, meh. Not the pop I wanted, but to really understand that read my review. Arbor Blacklist? Westmark?

This is not really aimed at you but does anyone find it weird when someone says X pro rules on this board?You could put the top pros on old Crazy Bananas or boards like that and they would still be far better riders than anyone else on the mountain.It's the operator, not the equipment.

What secret part of NZ are you in that has snow and an open mountain at the moment? Winters forgotten to turn up everywhere in NZ so far.

Auckland has a indoor ski field that runs year round, but the Ruapehu and the South Island fields won't open until late June.

On the topic of the board, DC with kind enough to send me out a demo of the 153.75 Ply. I tried it out at our indoor hill on man made snow, which doesn't give you the best indication of how it will handle all Mountain conditions, but gives you a good idea, especially in terms of jibbing etc.

I found to do be extremely stable on boxes and jump take-off/landing. Great ollie pop, I found edge hold a little difficult until I got used to the strange camber profile. I personally really enjoyed it, it really fitted with my personal riding style.
