Maxxxpowers First of all thanks for the review! I'm considering buying the same board.

1 question:

1) Would you recommend it to someone low-med intermediate skill level? I can do blues/some blacks regular. Still working on switch ride.

WasatchMan Good to hear, I recently picked up a 12 highlife and it is hands down the best board i've ever rode. Too much fun...

I really was considering picking up a 158 berzerker. Just for those days when I want to be a bit more playful around the mountain.

Hard to consider when they are so similar though

DrnknZag Any idea if they've changed anything from this year's Berzerker?

ippy I think the big question would be what else youd actually want out of it for it to be 'more all mountain'?
I do spend a lot of time riding in the trees in the sidecountry areas of resorts and the board seems pretty much on point. Its super responsive, it floats rather effortlessly (and im not exactly in peak fighting 158 condition anymore), and when you head out to the groomers itself, even on chop it doesnt get bounced off its line. It carves beautifully, bombs the mountain when you want a bit of speed, and then when it hits the flats it burns through while everyone else is hopping about and unclipping. Its buttery, spins comfortably, lightweight, it turns on a sixpence, but doesnt hook so you can draw out loooong lines, it pops decent (though as i say, not like my riot pops), it holds a super stable press, has a massive sweet spot so its almost pre pressed... which i guess it kinda is It rides in switch just like youd want and expect it too.

As i said, its going to take someone with a hell of a lot more experience to find the chinks in teh armor here. I wish i could do it, but the board genuinely has me googly eyed in love with it.

That being said, maybe its just ticking all my boxes by pure chance... and maybe they arent someone elses "all mountain" boxes.

I actually meant highlife/arcade since they are slightly stiffer than the berzerker

ippy Fraid not, im almost exclusively a bataleon/capita kid. As i say, im not really an authority on a) boards; b) snowboarding; c) editing. Im a bog standard intermediate rider so naturally keep the qualifier in place and a small packet of salt nearby if you make it through the review
