Default Great beauties?

I am in the process of looking for a new board and I have been trying to research this board but I can't find much about YES snowboards. I know they have camrock tech but I guess I need someones first hand experience with YES boards.

I have the GB 155, and its an awesome board. Camrock rocks, great balance between camber and rocker. Good float in pow, great on groomers, super fast, sick edge, and just an all around really fun board. I def recommend picking one up.

I haven't taken it to the park since I mainly got it to ride all mountain with, but its a breeze doing butters. I would imagine its prob pretty good in the park. It is med soft flex, great on small cliff drops (all I've been able to hit with the weather thus far). Only downside is not a ton of pop compared to a traditional cambered board. Asym sidecut is alot of fun as well, makes riding switch easier for me since I'm much weaker heelside riding switch. I'd say The Good Ride review is pretty on point thus far, though I'd rate it borderline excellent for groomers.

Eh, its def on the softer side of med. It seems around the same as my capita stairmaster, maybe a bit stiffer, but with the rocker, it still way easier to butter with.
