"The board should be the opposite of what I have now, a super fast, super stiff, fun and secure on ice, but really tiring board at the end of a 3 days session. Did my homework so I know what I should expect from this board but didn't get the chance to ride it. Weight 5/5 stars. Details 5/5 stars. Graphics 4.5/5 stars.Price 5/5 stars (sale 20% off)"
