First impression, and i mean within 100 yards was WOW. This board had the flex of the artifact maybe slightly stiffer. Maybe. I fell out of a couple hard butters because the tips were short and fell out on me from too much press. With a decent press i could get the tips about waist high before it came out. I just have to learn the shorter board. Setup was LIGHT i mean real light. WaY lighter than the skate banana. Pop was great. way more than the artifact. Jumps were great. Good pop off the lip and way less rotating mass. Effortless. Landings not the hint of sketching out. Now was the real test which i would never have thought it would have passed, let alone with flying colors. I went flatbased for a good 350 yards( i am good at golf so i know yardage) down a intermediate trail. At the point i felt like i was going fast enough i cut from the left of the trail to hard toeside into a 45 degree carve. OMG it held, didnt chatter, and wanted more. I could not believe it. On the artifact i would have ate it and slid half way down the section. This is my new favorite deck. BY FAR. And i have owned 25 plus with riding many more than that. This might be objective but look at the facts>
