First of all, the base is really fast, which can be a good and bad thing in trees. then it is damp as well, on the upper spectrum in lib boards. The mellow MTX is really good as well, not grabby feeling like on my t rice but grip the ice patches here and there.

tips and tail are a little stiff for what i expected, if it can be a tad softer, that will make it really playful, but again, u gain some u lose some.

it does ride like we say: a rear wheel drive

Awesome, good to hear

My current ride (NS Premier) is pretty quick edge to edge and I'm hoping the HK is similar in that regard.

Also, for those looking to buy, Snowboard Connection in Seattle and Bellevue have them on sale for 25% off. It is not on their web site so you will have to call to see if it is an in-store discount only.
Called about this and it is in-store only....that would be a killer deal though.

jkc350z would this board be considered an all mountain board?

Also, how does it handle tight turns and trees?

What will be even funnier is you completely obliterating us carving down the slope with your "ironing board."
Sounds like a challenge to me! The hardbooter forum is having a day at Nakiska next weekend, I'm heading out for the saturday at least. If it doesn't puke snow somewhere else maybe you guys would want to have a groomer bomber day?!?

I'll be the first to admit the BX board shape looks REALLY awkward, squared off tips like a plank of wood. It's not fast looking like an alpine board, or smooth looking like a traditional freeride board. So far I like it though! Plus if you ever need to iron something on the road... lol
