Hi Guys !

How they are? anyone is riding them ?

They use hybrid rocker/camber profile and only one board full camber 🙁 but with blunt edges,

many doubts but they seem made very well..

Anyone have deets on what factory they're coming out of? If it's a legit one, to me that's going to be the best indicator.

I recall reading that they're being pressed at GP87 somewhere along the way.

I see they have updated the specs on the Aggressor to make it more typical.  When they first kicked off, that board had a bunch of taper and a 10m sidecut, which made it sound like a fun groomer bomber for small guys.  I know the market for that is likely small, but it sounded pretty neat to me.

I also recall hearing GP87 (probably on Snowboarder Trader or Dig My Quiver). Fully hearsay on my part, I couldn't find confirmation of that but Facebook's search for comment threads within posts isn't great.

 

Edit: Found it. GP87, at least as of Feb 2019.

I need to understand if their hybrid works well... for me the only hybrid profiles that i like are Mervin (c2 + magnetraction) and Never Summer (ripsaw)

In that case, I would look to see what the reviews were on other hybrid rocker board that came out of that factory, like those from Flow or Weston, as I'm sure they're largely the same. 

GP87 seem to carry over the same shapes across brands. For example, the Weston 10th Mountain is the same shape as the old Flow Maverick, the Yunika Leaf is the same as the old D-Day Panda, and the Yunika Totem is the same as the Live 2 Ride Impression, etc. 

If you poke around, I'm sure you can get a decent notion of what to expect.  Good luck.

Jib Hunt said it himself when the brand was relaunched a couple years ago:
