Default Review of 07/08 Hatchet with Rome Arsenals

Well all I can say is holy snicker doodles!

Keep in mind that I've only rented before this, so my opinion is definitely tainted so far. But man this board is AMAZING. It is extremely hard to catch an edge, and I only did once. It's not noodley, but you can butter in it fairly easy. Because it's like 200 times lighter than rental boards I was able to hop up and get going in the direction i wanted, or just put a little pressure and spin from end to end really easy. Very stable and had no problems handling all the terrain out here could offer.

The bindings = teh awesome. Extremely responsive, yet extremely comfortable. I'm wearing 09 burton freestyles I think, basically the cheapest burton boot. I had my left foot strapped in as tight as it would go, with a slightly looser boot and it was only starting to get a little tired after 4 hours. No pain, no numbness, no tingling. I can for sure now say that rental boards (at least out here) are complete shit.

Anyway to sum up, this board and binding is a fantastic combo for all-mountain freestyle for noob beginners like me. My skill level at least doubled last night.

Awesome, glad you like the Hatchet. I have the 05/06 model and I love it. I'm pretty sure I threw in a response when you were weighing which board to get. It's just a really smooth board. It rides well switch, it's easy to press and butter and like you said, catching an edge is tough so you get a lot of forgiveness when you're swinging it around.
