Only thing I was happier with it was how they changed the flex pattern and tweaked the MTX. I rode one of the first generations the first time that one was like gen 5 or 6 if I remember correctly they corrected a few things I hated. The only thing that board excells at is in pow when the base of it forms a hull like shape and allows the floatation to be better. Every where else that board is under performing. Take it in the halfpipe and try to push off the tail and it folds, go off a big jump it folds, drop a big cliff it folds.
Its a hype driven board that everyone buys in.
