^ off topic...have never caught an edge with the BG going on 1.5 seasons...(knocks wood)...seems near impossible to do especially with the BG torsional looseness.
and where are you seeing knee deep?

I had last years trice pro and if I remember correctly it had similar flex rating to the BG. I am riding the mans board 165 this year and its not any stiffer than the trice.
I will say I am much happier to be back on a board with camber between the binders, no longer feel like I'm on a teeter totter that could catch an edge at any moment.
Mans board is great for switch riding and has been great all over the mountain, although we have yet to have snow that could be considered powder here so i cant judge that .... but we are going to sacrifice a few skiers this week in hope of appeasing the pow gods so maybe ill be knee deep by next weekend.

GNU billygoat vs Mans board stiffness
Thinking of downgrading my 162 2013 GNU billygoat to something smaller with some camber. Theres a 159 Salomon Mans board at one of the local shops for cheap, has anyone ridden both boards and can compare the flex?
Most people agree the Mans board is a stiff board but the billygoat is rated at a similar 7.5 (compared to 7 on the Salomon) and I wouldn't want anything stiffer.
Any help would be appreciated, cheers guys.
