Yeah from Flow the Era is what you would be looking at. Though out of those options I would be picking the Blacklist hands down.

Just to clarify, The Drifter has a ton of new tech in it from the 2011 Infinite Reverse. The 2011 was Whiskey Royale while the 2012 gets Whiskey Rocks (basalt at the heel and toe). Also, Flow's new Whiskey Shooter tech upgrades and reconfigures carbon usage with the 4 precured carbon plates used in this deck.

The Infinite line was a huge seller last year. In truth, the Rockered version and the Cambered version never should have been two versions of the same model as they were very different boards. Flow recognized this and seperated the two lines for 2012. We just took delivery on over 6,000 pieces of Flow.

STOKED!!!!

how well does the drifter hold an edge at higher speeds or on hardpack compared to something like the quantum?

It wasn't bad at moderate to fast speeds, but anything slower than that and I had to make a conscious effort to keep the tail from swinging around in turns. It was almost like riding a stubborn horse.

I sold it last week. One of the two boards I have new (to me) this season is a 2010 Flow Infinite 156 (cambered). Not sure yet if I'm going to pack it in the bag for my trip to Jackson. If so, I will give you the skinny on how I like it.

-EDIT-
Wired, are those *wooden* rafters in that warehouse? If so, then that's a first for me!

Hard to say really, its a different feel and you use different techniques to get rocker and camber to hold an edge. I would say similar just because of how well all of the Flow's I have ridden do in that area. It was something that surprised me every turn I made.

Apologies for going OT here, but yes, those are wood. There is a product name for them that is escaping me right now, but someone here will know. We are adding this 6,000 SF facility as a mixed warehouse / retail showcase / tuning center. It is almost done now and we plan on opening it up in ealy November. So STOKED!

That warehouse is 1000x nicer than most of the other ones I have had to work in (or spend time in). The shop looks good.

Rode it for the first time today at Nakiski.

It was very crowded, Icy with light coverage. I kinda wrecked the base going through the rocky glades, but fuck it!

I suck at writing reviews but it is an awesome board. I did some 180's off some icy lips and got it going as fast I could with the crowds/ice. It's sable and fun to ride! It's miles better than my NS SL and Heritage. (In my opinion…)

… I didn't spend much time at the shit show that was Nakiski today, You'll have to wait till we get some snow!

BA did review it if you haven't seen his yet.
