I have ridden many many different lib tech and gnu boards (lived next to a plant and got to demo for yrs) and this is the best yet. Some reviews say the turn initiation is a little hard and that the board is a little to stiff but I found it to be a breeze to carve with and the flex was firm but not too much. I ride at very high speeds and this board sits on either edge when you bomb and has no wiggle in the rear. Most stable high speed board I've been on. Tons of pop to blast boxes and very forgiving on blow outs. I guess I can't say enough about how much I loved it from the first run. If you want a serious all mountain deck than look hard at this Trice.
