Last season I owned a TRS HP -> TRICE hp - > hot knife - > TRS HP again
got my top speed with the TRS and 100% would glide further on the cat tracks with the TRS.
My first board I buy this year will be the 156cm ripsaw though.

When have you ever seen a versatile twin on top of a podium at a National BX event? The Never Summer Ripsaw with enhanced camber directly underfoot gives you the edge hold and carving power to do so, while having a slight rocker profile to ride the whole mountain.

Fell in love with the Ripsaw. This board is no joke. Take the raptor, add a little agility and more edge hold and you get the Ripsaw. This board gripped whatever terrain I threw at it. Killington was completely iced over last Saturday and it even gripped like a fresh groomer on that. All the skiers were complaining about the icy conditions and I really didn't even notice. On Sunday it was a little softer and it felt like I was on rails. Hit the "moguls" on Skye Peak and had no problems throwing this board around like it was nothing. Really wish I coulda hit the glades but everything was closed. Took it in the park (jumps only) and it had decent pop (completely subjective though). I'd consider my self a beginner in the park so I wouldn't be the best to comment on the pop.
I usually ride a forward stance but I ended up going with duck stance since we were gonna spend some time in the park. I can only imagine how this board would carve with a forward stance. Can't wait till next season.

|SnowDogWax||Playing around on the mountain has its place. I've found in most sports pick 1 or 2 things you hate or is hard and make them easy &/or your best. The focus the past year for me was switch, & highspeed carving. Would love to have the skills to make the whole mountain my park…. Just takes time|

I love true twins and I've always wished the Proto had just a little better edge hold (I'm 215 lbs riding a 157 Proto). I should just get a longer board, but I wanted to stay at this length because it is so much more fun in the moguls and park. This is why I was excited for the RipSaw. Not at all what I thought it would be though...not really that playful. It struck me as a board that is awesome for going fast...everything else was secondary. I prefer to play around on the mountain and occasionally go fast.

The initial flex between the bindings feels very soft to me, then once you hit the camber it gets quite stiff. I'll most likely try the medium bindings (Drake Reloads) and my stiffer bindings this weekend (Flux SF45)
