You have two guys saying the flex is "a little stiff" and the board is "hard to press" and having to "Craig Kelly" it to press it. That's just bad information probably influenced by uninformed and/or underskilled riders.
A flex test on carpet is worthless because you're not moving and carpet grips much harder. I can press my Evo over 2 and a half feet on carpet pretty easily. Flexing a board while sliding a nosepress or a 5-0 on a bar is a lot different or even just flexing it to put it on edge or moving it around trees and moguls. There's so much about board flex feel that can only be summed up by riding it.
It's not bad, but it's not a complete picture. The best thing to do is obviously a demo.
