So I got my "riders choice" yesterday first impression I love the board. This is my first time riding any sort of rocker design. Edge to Edge transfer is effortless. I feel like this board makes me work a lot less. And allowed me to really bomb the mountain hard
The magnetraction def works. last night was mostly slushy with some ice patches. And although the "grabiness" of the board took some getting used to It ripped right through ice patches.
The only issue I had, is the board washed out on me a couple times on small jumps, feels like it doesn't stick landings as well as my cambered board (I guess It'll take some getting used to).
Also the board feels VERY Stiff. Was very difficult for me to press it, were as my artifact would just bend at will. (some have told me the board will "break in" Is this true??
All in all I am very happy with board and feels it is a great compliment to my artifact, I'll probably switch back and forth depending on mountains and conditions
