Default Review: 156 GNU Carbon Copy 2011

Just got this board as an upgrade from an ancient Rossi core I had (167!) and I love just about everything about this one.

Banana camber is definitely a huge help with any pops, presses, and just not catching the edge on the half of the board you unload a little bit.

Mange traction seems to work well on icy patches as well as just soft of groomed snow.

I've taken this board out into sticky 35* weather and 5* freezing-balls-weather with groomed/icy snow and it kept me going where I wanted to each and every time.

I like the medium flex this board has for stability at speed as well as still being flexible enough to try lil tricks here and there.

Lastly, using it with flow bindings and boots, and all of that combined gives me a pretty straight and quick response and stability.

Seems like a nice board, maybe I might get it as my first board. Also is it an all mountain freestyle board, or one of the specifics(all mountain or strictly park)? And is it worth the $399, or would you prefer another board for that money.

It is all-mountain freestyle and I can't really say whether I'd want something else since its my first "real" board. From what I heard, Never Summer makes even better stuff, so perhaps I'd try to get one of those next time.
