It's light with a really soft nose and tail. I think they stiffened up the middle so you can rip it a little. I thought it was pretty fast and held together ok but not great at high speed. I had the 151- way too small for me. It's more of a freestyle-butter-board I thought than an all mt but that's me. You might find it ok. I didn't keep it because it was the wrong size and I like a more even flex. I landed a little back on the tail off a kicker and it totally warped out on me. I didn't like it on rails and boxes- it's not a damp-feeling board but I remember it was really easy spin in the air.

its a medium flex board, softer at the tips than in the middle, easy to ride, true twin. definitely a fun easy to ride board. not the best fpr very high speed hard pack riding but you of course know that. the 2010 is way different, way softer overall and rockered at the tips and tails
