Default The downlow on Bataleon's TBT...?

Looking at getting a new freestyle/all mountain shred stick and have been interested in Bataleon's TBT. My main concern would be edge hold and wash out at high speeds. Can anyone shed some light on TBT!? Currently ridding a never summer SL, with rocker and camber.

Versatile and fun like rocker? How does it feel flat based?

Flat based it almost feels like center reverse. Its a unique ride that is hard to explain. I don't ride camber anymore, but if it wasn't for work I would definitely have a Bataleon on my radar. TBT is a fun ride.

It rides like camber with a tweaked base shape. It's nothing like rocker. Basically when you go on edge you get really on edge when you're flat you're flat and when you skid a turn you can sometimes depending on which option of TBT feel it drag.

I've had my edge wash out on my ET a couple times at high speeds. I don't know if its because of the TBT, the twin shape, or me.

It feels like you're on a boat or floating.
