Any reviews from users?

My V1 starting to be really old and didn't like V2 (too stiff)... :jump:

I don't think so...

V2 is slightly stiffer,with slightly more rocker,with slightly deeper channel...all of this are small difference but at least you can feel it riding (especially if you are used to a certain feelings)

At the end I finished to buy V3: much better than V2 and slightly better than V1.

V3 mainly is softer and more flexible,I believe this was achieved mainly with a lighter construction: the board itself feels lighter in the hand.
This added flex gives better handling in the chop and better landings: to me is just perfect because they improve what I always looking for.
It's more palyfull and smooth compared to its predecessor, but dont think to a board too soft, when you push it remains a powerfull board.

Maybe something is lost in the low end but it's also a question of how you ride: you have to be gentle and dont put to much pressure on heels side in underpowewred situations.
All the other feature of the board are the same

absolutely recommended!!! :jump:

Also bought one recently and love it. Really happy with its playful side. Echo the feedback above

When it is playful, doesn't it mean it is less grippy to edge?

How would you compare it to the Jaime 23/24, in case you tried that one?
