    I’ve got last years model of this board. The Live Nudes version!
    Love the board, great for butters and has a suprising amount of pop considering its softness. Also I was suprised with how beautifully it handled in POW The nose lifts itself up and you glide! Really light weight for easy spins too.
    I use with Rome SDS 390 bindings.
    My only fault with this board which is kinda a biggie is that its a bit sketchy at high speed! Wobbles about an the bronze edges are really weak on ice. I wouldnt recommend it for beginners. The bronze edges are good on rails though!

    Love the bronze edges and its so buttery!! the flex is crazy and amazing it rides so smooth over rollers and snow drifts in pow and its a bit sketchy at first when going fast took a couple runs to get use to but after that it was amazing. Havn’t tried it on any rails yet park hasnt opened at our hill but the one problem is when hitting kickers off the side of runs it tends to flex and butter bad as you leave the lip it scrubs all the speed trying to get use too…..

    this board is super sick. its buttery but not like a noodle the edges never hang up on rails. and has massive pop. i have demo-ed alot of boards and this one is by far my favorite

    This board is pretty sick for jibs. Just not great on jumps and way sketchy on big booters and high speeds! Turning takes alot more work than a skate banana and it doesnt have too much control when you’re just riding around. Edges dont hold on ice! catches edges pretty easy. It presses like a mo-fo though! Butters good too! if you want to hit jumps and rails equally this aint your board. If youre jib specific then there is no other board for you. Next year they’re making the 1985 the rocker which should eliminate most of its flaws. so goodbuy 1985 and hello rocker!
