I'm a pretty general, all-mountain rider. I've ridden boards from 156 to 162. This is the best board I've ridden, period.
In powder, the board is soft and supple, floating easily with snappy reflex.
Man-made, groomed conditions and general packed seemed to be what this board was made for. Shifting front to back toward the toe-side is slingshot-like. Where the Flying V really comes to life is the toe-side turn back to heel-side. The movement is effortless, care-free, and fast. There's no comparison between this board and an old-school camber board.
This board is beautiful because you can either let the board drive you down the hill, like you've got your own chauffeur, or you can step it up and manipulate the crap out of the board in the park. It's what you want it to be.
The only negative I have is that ice is not the place you want to ride this board. I'm not saying it won't get you by, but you're not going to win any awards riding ice with the Custom Flying V.
