    Have a pair, can confirm... TOO soft. Fun boards but you really feel like you're at the mercy of the mountain since the softness leads to an inability of the edges to bite the snow with authority at anything approaching fun speeds. Tree graphic with WHITE Revel8 base gfx are the softies for anyone curious.

    Not really. The Revolt has always been a medium flex board though there were some soft ones made at one point with the Tree graphic. The Sticky is by no means a stiff board though, even though the rocker changes the way board stiffness can be considered. Basically, a rocker board behaves as if it is softer than it really is.

    Back in the day, when the Revolt was the only readily available option, we used to set them up for all mountain use in a very particular way. We would dull the tips/tails for about an inch, and mount the bindings set back about 30-40 mm. This needed some engineering, but the results were worth the effort. The tip dulling reduced hooking and over rotating at the end of hard carves, and the set back improved powder performance immeasurably.
    With the SIIs, this is all done for us, and in a much better way. The rocker does the same thing as dulling, but NOT at the cost of some edge grip, and the set back inserts saves the engineering.
    With Revolts set up this way, they could certainly handle powder. Not like a Rockered Condor of course, but not bad either. I wrote a trip report on here about a powder day on Revolts, not the two inches of fresh that so many call powder, but the real waist deep stuff, that for so many of us only happens a few times in a lifetime. The Revolts did great. But I used to like riding them best after a fall of about six inches of snow had been chopped up by the skiers. Really exciting stuff.
    But I was a bit younger and stronger then[emoji4]

    How would you compare the overall stiffness/flex to the Revolt, DLP, or any other boards that some of us might have ridden for comparison?
