It was really fun in steeps and maneuvering through trees... so playful and so soft a board - i had a lot of fun showing off its flex. I had to really work going through chop but it was fun. Had problems keeping up speed in the untracked at snowbird on the biggest pow day.

love this board! the pow was FUNNN but i'm actually looking forward to playing around with it on the east now
Great to hear!!, i just recently rode 2 days at snow summit, and they have really poor coverage, so twice i heard the dreaded *board going over rock sound* only to discover there were only a few nicks on the bottom on my base/edge so i'm still impressed with this board, it really is too much fun haha

twin89 mine has held up so far, even showing less signs of wear than my other boards at the same age, the top sheet seems to not get chipped as much, it feels like better topsheet material =)

yes, as nivek said, burton bindings will fit if they have 4x4 discs

Nivek I've had 2 hard seasons on mine, not broke yet. With a 4x4 disc your Burtons will fit.

Kanter I read somewhere that this board breaks easily, is that true?

Also: do you guys think I can strap my Burton bindings on the Nitro SubZero?

Thanks!

twin89 haha keep an eye out for my set-up at bear Enigmatic, i will be there as much as possible week of the 22cnd.

I will watch for a 155 one haha.

Enigmatic No way, I was just testing out my new sub-zero at Bear this weekend too! I was riding on Saturday.

I got the 155. Pretty sure its centered, got out the tape-measure and it looked good on each end.

Your review is pretty much spot on to what I was going to say. Definitely a super fun board.

Takes a little getting used though. I found coming off a Burton Custom, I had a big tendency to over-press and eat heavy shit on small tricks. I just gotta get used to putting minimal effort into my presses now. But my spins got a lot better with this board though, I dk if thats cause of the board or just because I was stoked and more down to try harder. Either way, I'm glad I got this stick.

The review is good but just the switch from camber to rocker is a big change. To be fair you would have to compare it to something more similar. Good work though and good to see you liked it. Are your inserts drilled true center?
yeah, cause im not sure what is different cause of the rocker or just a characteristic of the board haha. but yeah i will have to demo another rocker board and update this one then.

I got the SubZero, and not the SubPop (the late release edition) cause i heard about the off center inserts and wanted to avoid it. I measured mine when i took it out of the bag and they are centered, i think they fixed the insert issue for the actual 2009-10 model release.

Oh shit, I forgot about this. I'm gonna check and see if mine are centered too. Based on how it rode, I'd say I got lucky and mine were centered.
