“ I’ve been riding for 12 years and have never stepped on a stick as nice as the Never Summer Raptor. When you point the board downhill, it’s like a jet engine between your feet. You don’t realize how fast your going on this thing until you’re down the hill in 60 seconds. The Raptor absorbs chatter extremely well, and the Rocker/Camber profile is quite stable at high speeds....” --COBillsFan
“ This board has a great camber and flex for the free rider who likes to charge in all conditions. I ride the 161 I am 165 pounds. I prefer boards that are fairly stiff but not so stiff that they are harsh in bumpy conditions. If you want to charge groomers at max speed look at the Arbor A frame. However in my opinion this board is much more of a swiss army knife. It will handle...” --carverboy
“just bought it... have actually nothing to say.” --Smexx
“I tried a fish while cat skiing my first time, I found this on sale and think it delivers superior feel. It rides more like a normal board but without the back leg burn. After a day with the regular crew I was a lot less bagged and usually the first one waiting at the cat = more than my share of freshies. It's really nimble in the trees and won't chuck you over the nose when landing. Landing...” --
“ The K2 Gyrator Snowboard 2012 is the board that started the rocker revolution. It is made for premium powder float and quick turns in the trees. New for 2012, the Gyrator ups the ante with added features like Carbon Web II for even more pop and lively feel in the deep stuff. The 2012 K2 Gyrator is a Men's Directional snowboard with Reverse Camber made for the Intermediate and...” --Joey Scholl
“So i'm a freerider on a bloody park board? what's that about? I have no idea why burton calls it a park board cause i've shreded and slashed down steeps, chutes, got lost in backcountry powder one day, basically i ride the most random terrain and the last place you'll find me is in the park.So, yea its a park board and pullin 180's of side banks is a breeze but it performs quite well everywhere...” --Ishapeitsok
“ This board is amazing, and for my style of riding it is perfect. I learned on a camber board 5 years ago and own 2 styles of rockr boards and a zero camber,and this combo of rocker/camber is perfect. It has the steadyness of a camber (don't have to land right between your feet, more forgiving in landings in nose/tail), with the catch free feeling of a rocker. Good, medium...” --jduchein
“ I picked this board up online, and have ridden it around Ontario, Michigan, and Quebec. It's a great board with solid construction, and if I were to compare its specs and quality with any other board on the market, I would say it is on par with the best. The thing that sets it apart, however, is the TBT. The TBT allows the board to act like both a cambered board and a...” --qharrington
“I've tried Drakes, Burton and other brands and Flux seems to have the best product out but their customer service needs some help. You think that a person who purchased four set of bindgs in the last four year would at least get an email response. ” --China_Machine
“I actually dont know what kind of est's they are, other than they are the first year they came out, and they rock, two little screws and then your binding goes where you want it, the thing has degrees, stance position, front to back its amazing.” --Ishapeitsok
