I have an F1 and would say it is squirrelly when flat basing on hard pack (it's also a bit squirrelly when skating too). Given any amount of fresh snow and the squirrelly-ness goes completely away.

Last season my second time riding the board I decided to flat base it on some hard pack while bombing my local hill. It got squirrelly, caught an edge and I yardsaled it pretty damn hard. Got a concussion depsite wearing a helmet.

edit: Despite this, I love the board. Now, I just know to keep it on edge ever so slightly.

SuperRalfons way late response but here goes. the salomon grip has excelent edgehold and is my choice for everything but super deep and tricky lines.
for that the pyl is ideal. the trouble was meant to be my more freestylish board but i feelt like it lacked the pop and when it started delaming i just got the grip instead wich have pop for miles and days. it feels like being on a trampoline when i try to get air!!

but for next year i might get me some new yes boards since they ditched the nidecker factory.
think about geting the pyl 161 and the gsoh 154 or the jackpot 152.

Thanks bro. I'll take a look at the TT30. Any thoughts on K2 Uprise versus K2 National? I'm kinda interested in the auto fast in and out tech.

So far, I'm leaning towards K2 auto uprise or national or burton malavita or maybe a flux. cheers.

I'm using Union Force SL's and yes the ratchets suck.

Basti They had the trouble last year as well and it isn't really comparable to the Big City. The trouble is a true twin with med flex while the BC is a directional with med/stiff flex.

No, they just have a gap in their line-up now, which is a shame.

skip11 Maybe because they now have the Trouble which is the same as the Big City, and DCP now rides the Pick Your Line (where as he rode the Optimistic last year)

Maybe because they are switching manufacturers from Nidecker to Elan? But I agree, they seem a little all over the place.
