But I dont know wich board provide good result after cutting, wich must be its flex? i’m thinking about a stiffer board cos i supouse it will increase its flex after cutting. Here is some interesting boards at good price this summer – elan moment – arbor element – burton code – k2 illusion wich one would you choose? thanks in advance Ra May 16, 2006 at 9:18 am #588856 raul 41 Posts another options -k2 Instinct -k2 Disciple (stiffer) which one would you cut? May 16, 2006 at 9:53 pm #588857 boppingshoe 83 Posts I have an arbor element (not spilted), and I’d rate it medium flex. It’s good all around board but I wouldn’t call it stiff. It’s hard to figure out what do you mean “stiff” because everybody have a different standard.

Man, the cap/sandwich sidewalls on the hybricon make a hella bomber board with awesome carving abilities, great flex, and torsional stiffness. Has a harder tail, softer nose, up to a 168 in length. I’ve owned two of their boards and I can’t think of going back to another company. It handles the crud and ice just as well as the powder. You will see….
