Got here yesterday! Being my first split board i am dying to get on this thing. A few observations: the camber is really mellow- you can barely feel it on the rug. The magnatraction is also super mellow- it looks like three very elongated areas- sort of like if you took a lib tech side cut and stretched it out. The inside magna lies between the insert packs only. The board's nose rocker starts under the middle of the front pack. The tail rocker starts under the hooks. The nose rocker is more pronounced than the tail. And of course those blunt tips look pretty tight.
The top sheet is super sexy with a highly transparent high gloss shell. Great topo graphics that have this 3D effect in the light. There's a quote from someone named Relin on it: "Core of man's spirit, comes from new experience." The flex feels pretty stiff per hand and knee test- about the same as my Capita Charlie Slasher which is rated at 6 but feels more like a 7+ on the snow.
There is light coming through this one from the top to bottom. I have no idea if that's a concern or how, if it does at all, affects the performance of the board. It seems the very ends hit too early making a gap in everything in between. Although the inside edges are closed at the spots where the hooks the bolted. The only other thing is that one of the bolts that holds the hook on is loose. You can turn and jiggle it and none of the others do it. It doesn't bother me because the hooks lock the same as the other set- just not sure if it'll eventually fall out.
Here's some pics i took of the gap and the rocker camber profile.
