I have both the Flying V and the 2012 T. Rice Art of Flight edition. I have yet to ride the Flying V. So far, the Rice I feel is a lil bit sluggish during tree runs but maybe it was because of the bindings I had on . It charges hard, damp when landing jumps and stable at high speeds.
When the season starts here in Ontario I lend you my thoughts. I had a 2010 Custom V Rocker before I got the Flying V. The V Rocker was an all around board but unstable which I didn't mind.
I rode the 2012 Custom Flying V all last season, and I will probably ride it again this season. I found it to be fantastic as a hybrid board. Initially it felt different for me but the more i got used to it the more fun I was having and I ended up really enjoying it, and progressing my riding quite a bit.
I'm not much of a review writer, so if you have any specific questions about the board just send me a message.
Going over bumps on ungroomed snow its not as stable compared to my T.Rice. its not as damp when hitting kickers.
I had the same experience on a 2011 Custom FV, sold it and just rode my DH2 for the rest of the season. Then switched to a 2012 Custom restricted with camber humps. It feels more stable on steeps and bumps. I went back to a custom because I like the flex on it.
