I didn't like the Attack Banana. With respect to the PYL, I moved the front binding back a slot yesterday, increased the forward lean on the IPO highbacks a bit and whammo.....a board that I really enjoy riding. Whether I absolutely "love it" has yet to be determined. I am still getting used to it.

You won't get enough for the lobster to buy a Proto. This is why I am recommending selling the Goat as well. You need 600 bones in your hands asap. You can probably get 280 for the Goat and 325 for the lobster. Problem solved. Go get your Proto and don't look back.

There were 3 main points i noticed right away.

Speed: Step on it and im like " WHOAHHH", this thing is fucking fast. A little more riding reveals that this thing is really fast, actually so fast i had a hard time controlling it. Makes every flat spot on sunshine seem like a blue run's. The wax absorption is good, at least for me. I did wax it as soon as i got it and then right before the trip. Soooo, yeah. TBT is fast as fuck. Moving on....

Edge: First run was a black run and never been rode the TBT, its was sketchy to say the least. Non the less, the edge was there on run down ice patches and edge to edge was amazing. So smooth and so fast. Carving blacks became fun again. I think the camber and stiffness helped with that alot. So, there is edge grip on TBT unlike some people say. Took 3 turns to familiarizes myself with it and then it was on to the races. Super fun.....

TBT: I have to say that majority of things TBT does for you, listed on Bataleon website, is true. Turn initiation is easy, hard to catch an edge, though not impossible , spins on jumps are easier and loads more. One in particular was how it felt on pow. Damn, is all i have to say. Actually, holy shit. Feels like when you step on a boat on water. Unlike anything i have ever rode before. Feels weird but confident at the same time. Kinda like surfing but softer and more fluid. Hard to explain, anyways. I need to take it to deep stuff, then im going to cry. So good.

Overall, im super stoked on it. I love it. Snowboarding is fun again without having to push myself. Love cruising on it and id love to take it on a long run with beautiful scenery. TBT won my heart, and next year im planning on the camel toe. have a good night.
I think blunted should join the TheGoodRide review crew.
