Do you have any experience with the board? Can you comment on how it rides?
It's BA's favorite board the last couple years, that's all you need to know.

haha and what he says goes? I have read the review he wrote up on his website, but is it more park oriented? I enjoy park laps, but I like to ride almost everything from powder to trees. Is this board capable of that?

Its his daily ride that he uses everywhere in Summit. Yeah it'll handle it. If you are more concerned about trees and pow get a Coda.

I would put the park over pow and trees, but I enjoy riding almost everywhere and want a board that will handle that. Good to know the Blacklist is capable of that. How about anything else from the other brands I listed? Any of the Lib Techs?

I haven't ridden a good chunk of Mervins in a couple years to be honest, but unless they got a ton more lively I doubt it. They always feel sluggish and meh to me.

Maybe the Bataleon Whatever?

I have test ridden the YES The Basic and i love it.

Sounds like it will be very competent all over the mountain and with the Camrock profile should handle powder well too.

Its what i think im gonna buy in a months time.

Can anyone comment on how the Blacklist is with ice? Hate to choose a board based on that, but it happens a lot here on the east coast so it matter a little bit.
