Raptor:

No other comments. Sorry.
Good thing it has the 3 year warranty, eh? Base looks a bit abused. What did you hit?
My thought also, I've landed countless jumps in the worst positions,mega loops gone really bad, powered front roll downloops where the landings on toeside have broken the area in front of foot on previous boards.But there's always the chance that you receive a board with some internal weakness due to manufacturing/materials issues.

Don't know the Raptor, but the Jaime is much more sold and I ride it for 3 years now and love it very much.
That's why I just bought the new 20202 Jaime Textreme 136cm (82kg) with the Entity Ergo bindings. Awesome board. Excellent pop which gets you easily 10-15 meters high..
Check the tests if you can't test yourself! Jaime Textreme 2020 is a top 3 board of all 2020 boards and the Raptor is not in top 3. Test and try and you will know...
Cheers

I'm curious as to where you saw this test/review? I want to see this board pop that will get you 10-15m without small rocket underneath.

Raptor pro, without a doubt. I use crazyfly boards for years, excellent durability! Totally recommend!
Duotone seems more “plastic” by the way...

If you pay 5 euro's you can get the most extensive 2020 kite gear test from the kitemag. There you can read it! And I went out today in NL on the 2020 Textreme (20-35 knots) and it is absolutely awesome. Mega pop, very lose in turns and still soft landings after your jumps... But I would test it and then you will be convinced :D
