if they were clever they would figure out how to make the forward heelside edge twist up to allow efficient lower rocker but avoid catching that front corner on steep chop, etc.
Were they clever, or just too clever by half?
reviews will be interesting...

I'm not sold on torsional flex. That would give you too much noodle board feel. tip flex is another thing. I think that is a good thing. I want to reduce torsional flex while increasing tip flex.
