Salomon Sick Stick vs. Powder Snake

So they're basically the same board aside from the Sick Stick having the bamboo core, right? What's the big advantage of the bamboo of the SS over the Pow Snake? I know some people don't like the "organic" flex you get out of bamboo, but what are the pros/cons of either board?

Redundancy of logic by Salomon? One is softer from hand flexing.

I think the Salomon board guys need to party more with the boot guys as the boot guys have it dialed.

^ No. The difference is the total construction methods in it the Powder Snake is based off the Riot with the Sick Stick shape and keeps things more affordable. The flex is a bit more snappy and playful on the Sick Stick which is what you want. The whole reason the Powder Snake even exists is to keep a pow board on a pricepoint for the dude that wants a quiver but can't drop 500 plus.
