The hybrid camber and rocker is amazing try it out if you havent yet
So will the 45 degree carbon highlights improve the edge hold and nose/tail chatter the reviews have complained about?

If so will the board become stiffer (I see they still rate it as a 5 for flex in the new catalogue), therefore less fun to play around on and defeating the object of having this alternative to the camber?!

Yeah supposedly it is going to have less chatter making it quieter. The carbon highlights improve edge control at higher speeds i think. Its suppose to be more of a all-mountain big mountain board, but can be easily transferable to the park.

What does the flex feel like on this? Middle of the road or a bit stiffer with the new highlights?

Haha, just intrigued if there is a noticeable difference in flex this year.

Did the comparison (by hand) against the 2013 CFV and nothing noticeable. Felt pretty much the same. I reckon the 2 board need to be ridden side by side to notice the subtle differences. But I can tell u 2014 feels lighter.

Last Year, This Year unrelated. How much does the Custom (Flying V and camber) flex. I always thought it was a stiff, kind of like a more aggressive process. Should I want to butter and jib, is the custom not really made for that kind of riding?
