Anyone ever ride this old bjorn leines forum

I've been snowboarding for many years now but since I only get to go boarding 4 or 5 times a season, I havent really spent much for boards. Ive pretty much craigslisted all my boards (a vision, and a couple 5150's) but for this season I found a deal on an older bjorn leines pro board on ebay. I found some reviews on boardreviews.com but nothing substantial. Anyone have any opinions of this board? Any idea how it would compare to a 5150? Im guessing better but its all preference I suppose. Its probably worth mentioning that im also going from a 148 to a 152 and I will be doing a little more park this year (I'm 5'9 170lb).

Back in the era when Forum started the I-Lock ( might be wrong on that), I worked at Zumiez and the store sold alot of the I-Lock Forums. I had a friend who rode the Peter Line board, it was sick. Even for a older board it should still be a good shred stick. I wanted the JP Walker board, but my foot was to big for that. I am sure it is better than a 5150, but every board is different. Park, yes definitely better. Anyways should be a good board, Tear it up!!

Alright, good at least something posative. I was looking more into the board and found its either a 2001 or 2002 model which is kind of old but since the 5150 right now feels like it has about as much pop as a 2 by 4 then it should help out.

I have a Forum F10 with the I-Lock system and it has served me very well. I have heard of some guys complaining about the sliders moving when they land big jumps. That is probably why I've never had a problem with it, I don't do big jumps. Also, I had gotten hardware specifically made for the I-Lock system. I'm sure it would be hard to find now other than contacting Forum directly but I'm not sure how critical it was to use that hardware anyway.

My experience and what I do in snowboarding is really quite
independent of the industry and the more independent it is,
the more pure and better I feel about snowboarding.- Craig Kelly
