I finally had a chance to go out and ride my Arbor Roundhouse CX. This board is so damn beautiful, I was afraid to go ride it! It's like a work of art. Still, I went to ride and it's a very nice ride! It is MUCH more stable at speed than my flat Solomon. I'm no expert snowboarder. It seems harder to turn at slow speeds. I'm sure it's just an issue with me getting used to the board. But at higher speeds, this thing is very easy to turn and carve with. It's a great board. My old board, was pretty sketchy at speed. It slowed me down quite a bit. I'm going to Alyeska ski resort this weekend and am staying for four days. I'll report back with more info. But so far, I feel a LOT more confident with my Roundhouse.
