Not really...different top sheet, still the doubledog profile. Destroyer is a little stiff, not enough to be noticeable I think. Destroyer is a 5 on flex, Youngblood is a little softer with a 4. You won't regret it. The 2014 line looks good, unless you can get last years for cheap. Buy it up, Forum is dead and this is their last season...damn Burton...

Lots wrong here. Very different. Same profile, but the similarities stop there. For 2013 the youngblood might have actuall been softer again like its suposed to be. If you can though I'd shoot for the Grandpops profile. Way better than doubledog in my experience. The Destroyer, ileven if its stil softer, will have more snap. The youngblood in the past has been a very damp board but not particularly lively.

Blaming Burton? Remember Forum would have died 9 years ago or have been sold to Sports Authority had it not been for Burton. And financially with Forums shaky past, less than strong profits, and the state of the industry it was a smart move for Burton to end Forum. Good brands die, it happens. And Burton made a pretty good effort, despite the lack of warning of it all, to help who they could with the transition. And to be honest a fair amount of the riders are on great teams now where they can be a little more noticed.

Didn't really rant or blame Burton per say. Burton pulled the plug...damn Burton. So hard to express tone through words lol
