I have one. Easily put thirty days or more on it. Still rides as good as the day I bought it. I don't see it dying anytime soon. I was pressing in pow off Imperial one day at Breck when I hit a rock. I was pressing and I hit a rock. Barely any damage. Nothing I'm worried about at all, the base on this board is crazy strong. And yeah it is softer than a noodle, but it rides surprisingly stiffer if you're not pressing.

These are recognized as generally the softest boards on the market, no longer. Because this thing is actually so soft, you dont have pop - it is whimsicall.

Why buy it when, there are so many better alternatives namely a Revolver-R or Evo-R?

And for the person who said BurtonAvenger loved the board obviously has the literacy level of a 5 year old. He said it was manageable at best.

I wasn't criticising the 390's at all, I love my pair and the only other binding I'd consider riding would be K2 Formula's.
No where in his review does he say it is manageable at best.I agree that this board is for hardcore jibbers only. and btw, saying someone has the literacy level of a 5 year old, adn then having your facts wrong, really makes you look bad.

BurtonAvenger Did you really just throw in the hand flex test?

fuzzysnowboard Is it just me? The binders look like unions for some reason.

BurtonAvenger There's a link to my review of it somewhere in the review section.

They can screw that ish up? Damn, now I gotta go check my boards.

Nivek Good choice, I'm riding one of the limited edition Sub Pops that came out in Januaryish. I love it, you'll love it. SO crazy easy to press and butter but rides surprisingly solid on the rest of the mountain. I have a pretty extensive review on it in the equipment review section.
