Lobster Freestyle board

Hi i was contemplating whether or not to buy the lobster freestyle board the only thing holding me back is im not sure how TBT is going to hold up on the 40+ size jumps as i have heard that it tends to slip out on the bigger jumps i mainly ride park with the occasional pow when i am able to make it to the mountains

Well when i make it to the mountains i prefer regular base boards because they don't wash out on 40+ and they slay the pow real good and its sweet shit and i don't need some fancy pants base tech to allow me to ride all over the mountain and its good shit

I have an older ET, which is I'm pretty sure what the Freestyle this year is, and it performs pretty well at speed.

I don't go off of huge jumps or anything, but it has never let me down when I am carving fast.

Halldor seems to handle it fine.

In all seriousness, people exaggerate the severity of TBT. It doesn't affect your riding as much as the interwebz would have you think.

Jesus, don't we already have that thread going?

Personally, I've never tried TBT but I'd like to give it a go sometime to try it out if I got the chance.

Last time I saw him hitting a big jump with TBT he knocked himself the fuck out.

Lol yeah! My point to the OP was that he'd probably have more luck by breaking his words into sentences, using punctuation and capitals. Call me the grammar police but it makes it far easier to understand if it's written properly. And if it's easier to understand, it's easier to respond to!

I actually have no constructive advice to offer the OP on his original question.
