07 Byerly or 06 and earlier?
The Byerly is an agressive board. I loved it, it had its problems, but still. the hammerhead was the onlything [IMO] that set it apart from the rest, it had its consiquences tho.
seems to be the complete oposite of the byerly but I havent riden it so i shouldnt say much.
But Derek, don't be too close minded, it seems as though youre pushing away other quality boards. heres some others you might want to look at.
It's a very well developed board, very inovative, and insane pop.
For those that ride like Parks [not skill wise obviously] that highly aggressive-take-everything-huge-and-out-into-the-flats style cut.
Very nice board, lots of pop. if you want to spend the money, make it a platnum, ive been told its worth it.
I saw a launch instructor ridin this one day, and from far away, he looked like he was just killin it, huge air, spins,...
so yea, check some of those out too.
