1st post / joined Dec '11 ? Where ya been? No matter. Welcome.
About me: 6' 200 lbs. riding 4 seasons now. 30 days a season. No park. Groomers and all the powder I can find. Powder is hard to find in Southern Ontario, but I make the most of what I get.
2012 Lando 160. Rode it last season along with a Rossi OneMagtek and a Burton Barracuda.
The Lando is the stiffest deck of the three. It is not for buttering around on. Much to stiff for that. What it is best for is charging groomers. If you like speed and a board that will hold a solid edge, this is a deck you will like. I have found that I am not a fan of the "pivot" feel that you get when turning this board due to its CRC profile, but many people do like it.
Due to the fact that this is a directional deck, switch is not something it excels at. You can do it, but you have to work at it.
I have no doubt that this board will excel in powder with your bindings set back, but I have yet to have such a day to attest to that. I also cannot give you any feedback on how it handles the glades & such, but given how it handles it should be ok.
Compared to the Rossi, the MT is not as "deep" and as such you get nice edge hold without a "bite". I do like this aspect of the Lando.
In summary, for me this is a dedicated deck for days that are hardpack, maybe icy, and all I want to do is charge.
When I get the right day, the binders will go all the way back and I"ll update how I find it in the powder.
Get it. Wax it. Ride it.
