Default input jealousy here!!!

MOnday - Tuesday ill be going to demo 2011 equipment for next years buying at my shop.

plan on checking out bataleon's TBT, some NS R/C, along with NITRO and K2 and LIB for sure.
if there's time ill see what Ride has planned and maybe the "B."(dont carry them anyways)

ill try to remember what it all was like and snap a few pics
awesome thing about the demo is im taking most of these boards straight outta the wrapper.

start off with my new "love"
-'11 capita horrorscope FK 153.
-'11 UNion Contacts.
the board rode amazing for me.definitly a park oriented board for rails and small booters.
the flatkick turned great, its subtle so it offers some pop yet turned nicely. The board felt like it had a "dual flex" keeping my weight over the center of the board offered a springy snappy flex but as soon as a pressed forward almost as if a new, slighty softer flex occured. I liked it. alot. i dont think anything has changed from last year.

Thank you for posting the Horrorscope!

You have any info on the Capita Black Death coming in FK next year?

Or what they're doing about the Ultrafear as in will it be available next year, and in wide? And the Indoor Survival will be available in wide also?

2ndly favored..
'11 k2 WWW rocker. 152
'11 k2 formula (re-designed with super high back)

This is an unchanged board, yet one of the for-sure boards i like. rocker made the board turn easy. has a p-tex top sheet (again). the board rides as if 5cm taller. The board has a constant flex tip to tail. nice and buttery. good rails and smaller hits.

right behind the weapon
'11 Indoor Survival FK 154
'11 UNion force SLs

This basically felt liek a beefed up horrorscope. i still noticed that same 2 stage flex just more of a medium flex.

***Both of these union bindings were "OK". not too sure what everyone is so hyped on about these? the toe strap has me second guessing with the little plastic "toe holder?" also the toe ratchets didnt work very smoothly.

next
'11 Bataleon Fun-kink TBT
w/ previous k2 formulas

The fun kink was a bit more intended as their all freestyle board made to hit it all. had a medium (cambered) flex. All bataleons are cambered FYI. the tbt made the board ride as if it were reverse cambered and maintained all the pop. I didnt notice much a delay from toe to heel turns as you might think. The only real concern was the stability while popping. felt a little loopy when popping off the hard pack. I could also see this being an issue while landing a bit off kilter.
