I like it enough that I bought another one at the end of the last season. I always travel with two boards and the Deep Thinker is in the bag every time. There was only a couple days last season in Utah where it was so deep I would have liked a little more length, but the 163 length is really good for just about every condition for my riding style. My friends that I travel with are all skiers, so the lines we take trough trees are usually super tight and I can turn that board on a dime. One thing I really like about it, I can set my bindings back almost to the limit of the channels and it doesn't ride all wonky when you hit cat tracks or firmer snow. I would say it is a great all-arounder.

Thanks for the info, that's good feedback. 

I'm looking to add an all-arounder to the quiver this year, and I'm sort of debating between the Deep Thinker, the Super 8 or a Nitro Mountain.  There is also a part of me that is thinking of saying fuck it and just grabbing a 163 Squash, but that is a pretty different board.

It's been a long time since I've purchased a Burton board, but the DT looks pretty frigging nice.

i got the dt start of last winter and felt like i was missing something.

tried it back to back with a FA and sold it straight away and bought my 5th FA 

imo the DT feels like it has more rocker in the nose and feels like less board underfoot.,

i had the dt 57 and bought another fa 59.

4 of my friends ride the DT and they all love it.
