Make sure you ask them to sharpen the edges before you go. I found the edge hold lacking.

I also demoed the LT Dark Series and Travis Rice Pro the same week.
I bought the Travis Rice. Very solid and stable but easier to maneuver than the AMF imo.
Interesting. I do agree that Prior could use a little more pop to them as they are kind of like what I imagine Cadillacs to be (solid, stable... not particularly energetic or playful) - last one I rode was 2010 or 2011 model. Thanks for the info. What length AMF/Trice were you riding?

In regards to the review of the Antler on thegoodride.com, I'm not sure about that review. I was interested in that board too, so I looked at that immediately after they posted their new reviews a few weeks ago. What jumped out to me was that it is listed as "twin-ish" and that it has a "setback stance." Well, it IS a twin, but usually twin-ish means almost twin or twin-like in reference to non-centered boards. Hence the next comment of "setback stance." Well, its not setback. Burton's site doesn't say that (they say the opposite), and I've handled/examined the board in person at my local store and it definately is NOT setback.

I figured it was an error so I emailed the guy, but he stood behind the review as-is and said it definately was a setback which makes me think that on that particular board, he is confused.

I don't mean to beat up on him or his site, I actually like their site, but would only "trust" what they say if they post an "in-depth" review (look at tabs below the basic description/snowflake ratings) on the board/binding/etc. My guess is that they said the edge hold was not so good just because that is how they feel about all of Burton's Flying V shaped boards, and are expecting that to be the case. I've only read one review of the Antler and they really liked it and had no complaints about edgehold.

I bought a 161.5 TRice, and all the boards I demoed were in the 160-162 range. I'm 175 lbs. if that helps.

Your description of the AMF is pretty much what I thought of it.
