The 2009 Forum Grudge is a great all mountain board that on top of being super light it gives you the feel of total control.  They try to sell this snowboard by talking about how the board has a “progressive shape” to make for an “exceptional ride”.  I usally take this stuff like a grain of salt when I am making a decision, but I think this is the first time I have seen someone not oversell a feature.  This board is super responsive with the perfect amount of flex.  So for all those all mountain cruisers that love to rip at all speeds you are going to love this board.
