Comments about GNU Metal Guru EC2BTX Snowboard - Blem 2014:

I ride this board all over the mountain as well as when I teach at Cannon Mountain. After sharpening the base and side edges this board shreds just about all terrain and because the edge does not wrap all around the tip and tail of this board, it spins effortlessly with the lightened swing weight. It is definitely closer to a 7/10 for stiffness and the magne-traction is much more suddle with 7 points unlike on my old Rossignol JDUB with just 5 points. The base absorbs a lot of wax, but the it doesn't seem to hold it for long as I have had to wax it after almost every use. Overall I'm happy with the Guru and would recommend it anybody looking for a solid all-mountain, freestyle, do-anything-you-want-it-to board!

    Comments about GNU Metal Guru EC2BTX Snowboard - Blem 2014:

    I ride mostly in SoCal so it's good in the park but I was really surprised how stable it is at high speeds, it held well on ice too and I actually downsized from a burton custom 156 to a 152 metal guru. Can't wait to bring it in the pow on my annual trip to the Utah, if u can only ride one board...this one is versatile.
