Default Flow Drifter

Hey anyone got a ride review for the flow drifter. I have done some searching and there doesnt seem to be many reviews about this board.
Just looking for some first hand reports from anyone who has been on one.
Im 140lbs, size 9 looking for an all mountain board for 20% park and the rest cruising around, natural features and attacking the pow. Looking for something that is stable and smooth but still playful. I have only ever been on camber boards so looking to try out some different camber styles. I have a option mirror 152 I use as my park board so was looking at the 156 drifter.
Any thoughts are welcome!

Its a fantastic choice at a great price. Angrysnowboarder.com reviewed it. High speed butters and poppin off rollers is what it likes. It'll send jumps great too and the rolled base between the feet is great for peice of mind in a front board.

Only other boards I'd personally consider would be a K2 Turbo Dream, Salomon Grip, or Arbor Coda.

Thanks Nivek.
Yeah the other boards i was looking at were the turbo dream, coda or westmark and the nitro team gullwing. I have seen the 2012 drifter at a great price but am worried it may be less durable than the others?
Would the 156 be on the long side for my 140lbs. My old board was a 155 nitro shadow which i liked.

Not too long. And I wouldn't worry about the durability of Flow. They make a solid product.

I had the infinit, which is the same board but with the opposite camber. A freind of mine has the version (a year or 2 older) you are looking at. It is a solid board for what you stated. Stable and fun to ride.
