I have this board (2016 version (sloth), 153cm). I bought it used via Kijiji and ended up enjoying it so much that I bought a brand new one shortly after. It's a fun, versatile board. It's playful and very forgiving. The rocker, camber, rocker profile is tuned so that you can be very lazy and still not run into issues with catching edges, but when you intentionally get it leaned over, it carves surprisingly well. Edge hold in all but icy/hard conditions is good. Having several other boards, my biggest complaint about this one is that in choppy stuff it chatters a lot -- the most of any of my current boards. On soft snow and soft groomers it's a lot of fun.
It's a freestyle/park board that you can also ride on the rest of the mountain and have a bit of fun with, but it's first an foremost a freestyle/park board. If you're looking more for an all-mountain freestyle board there are better options, in my opinion. Additionally, I wouldn't own it as an only board if I was going to be doing a significant amount of riding in very hard/icy conditions as I feel there are better options for that as well.
Durability-wise, I'm not sure what to expect from this board. The one that I purchased used was in excellent condition, but a light knock against one of my children's boards resulted in a chip/crack in the topsheet. The one that I purchased new is completely fine, so far. Both bases are holding up well, as are the steel edges.
