ok so I ended up buying the 2014, I've only put a couple days on it so far cause we are in the middle of a cold snap here at sunshine. Here are my thoughts so far:
Setup: 155cm, cartels, burton ions, 160lbs 5'9 rider
The board is super light and responsive. This is my first twin and I was really surprised how hard I could ride it all over the mountain. Edge hold is really good with the magnetraction. This board has the more mellow 7S but fresh out of the box I would say it grips just as hard or even harder than my other board that has 7M edges (bigger) but are more beat up.
Anyways you can really lay into a carve and it doesn't seem to bite into soft snow as hard so transitioning is good. I haven't ridden much chunder but for the most part there is not noticeable chatter at high speeds.
The finish is top notch, really like the graphics on this board and I've gotten a few complements on it.
Jumps really well, its very snappy and poppy. Ollies well. Buttering is ok, it is really easy to get a press going but seems a little harder to lock it in, despite the huge flat spots on the nose and tail.
I suck at jibbing so I won't comment on that.
Overall it is a great all mountain freestyle board and I got it for a steal at just $180. I'm pretty happy with it and it really surprised me at being so good outside of the park.
