    Comments about GNU Carbon Credit BTX Snowboard 2014:

    I bought this board november right before all the snow, I took it up to the mountains hopped on it didn't tune it wax it nothing, this board rode amazing in the fresh powder, on the groomed runs, took jumps amazingly and pretty soft landings compared to my old stiff board. the flex on this board is just killer, I dont have a single complaint what so ever about this board. i Highly recomend it.

    Comments about GNU Carbon Credit BTX Snowboard 2014:

    This is my second board. My first/beginner board was directional and a bit stiff. I wanted to get better at switching and found this Carbon Credit. It transitions really well, offers good flexibility, and makes for a very smooth ride all across the mountain. This is definitely a board worth considering if you're ready to advance from your beginner board to a reasonably priced technologically equipped board.

      Comments about GNU Carbon Credit BTX Snowboard 2014:

      I've used this snowboard through a variety of terrain in both Colorado and Utah, and been very pleased with my purchase.

      In first 10 days of use, I've used the board through groomers, heavy and light deep powder, and the terrain park. It's been very durable through the powder, and given me good pop off the jumps and cliffs. It curls out of my groomer turns very well, and retains its' speed far better than I expected.

      I am very happy with this purchase and EVO, and would strongly recommend both.
