Smokin MIP

Anyone ridden this? Just looking for opinions outside the usual review sites who tend to love everything. I know BA reviewed it on angrysnowboarder but he blew it up before he could give it a full going over.Looking for a something a little more playful in the park than my Heritage.Or anything that might be similar/better in the $350 range.

It is a great board man, get it, shred it, you wont regret it! It is a hell of a lot more playful than your heritage. I would compare it more of the Proto than the heritage. I just now saw BA's review and pic of it with the blown edge and it looks like it still held up fine! Didnt crack or delam even with that sharp bend. I have the 2011 version and I dont know what the difference is and what they changed. I can tell you right now though, that 2012 graphic looks ugly compared to the '11 graphics!

The MIP will be softer than the Proto and way softer than your heritage. Its going to have a quite a bit of give to it between the bindings and a touch stiffer outside. Also look at the pro models smokin has, they're only $399

Thanks to both of you.The pro models do look good but the MIP is pretty much bang on to what I am looking for. With the blunted tips I still get the edge length I want in a shorter board.I like the Buck Ferton but want the flat camber and to spend $125 less.
