Anyone have this? How's its durability?
Basically i'm buying a cheaper board to beat the crap out of AKA mt baldy after big dumps of snow - powder everywhere but very thin coverage in some spots.
I have currently ride a 157.5 GNU riders choice and core shot it at baldy... Completely worth it but i'd rather not F it up anymore than i have.
These are on sale right now just wondering if anyone has ridden them?

Would you ride this for 125 bucks?

Let me know.

The Taipan has been my board of choice this whole season, and not because it's cheap. I have plenty of good boards, mostly got this so if my buddies wanted to come along i had a cheap board for them. i tried it out one day just to see if it was at least decent, and i havent' been on any of my other boards since. haven't had a lot of experience in deep powder yet, but it's supposed to be pretty good for that. go for it, i'd be shocked if you're not happy with it.

Nah not at all I just need another board to take to baldy, but wanted something that's half decent and not hate.
It's definitely going to get beat up

My first board was a 2011 Taipan. Used it all over the hill. Now I want something that caters more to my riding style, but honestly, no complaints at all.
