Feedback on the Swoard Extremecarver Pro2

I was in Himos Ski Center yesterday with my Pro2 168M .
Slopes were in very nice condition and sun was shining.
So did I after first run :D .

I tested Pro 1.1 in Zinal (thanks Patrice!) a few days before the SDT 2017 and I was really impressed. It was much more stable and and faster than my old Pro1 (of course we have to remember that my Pro1 is S and Pro2 is M).
Yesterday I felt same and even more :clap2: . Though Pro2 is more stable and fast it´s still very lively and agile. There are really no problems at the lifts or narrow trails to an other slopes.
Pro2 is now very high lever of the quality with all nice details.
This board is great :chinese: and I really hope that next season will start soon.

P.S. in the afternoon slopes were not in so good condition and I did still smile :wink: .

So finally I tried my new Pro2. I had the Gen4, then the Pro and for this season I bought the Pro2.

The board is totally beyond words. It is absolutely amazing, it was no exaggeration it is an improvement over the EC Pro.
In my opinion the Pro2 board has more flex, it is softer, yet its shock absorption is better and it holds the line even better than the pro.
Plus because its flex, i can have a more aggressive radius.
It stays in the carve in a most composed way. When other boards give it up and bounce out of the line it just holds and holds.
I tried it back to back w my friend who rides my last year pro and the difference can clearly be felt. The pro is great and better then gen4, but the pro2 is a great improvement.
It is also very forgiving in bumpy slopes and when you ride slow/tired/ not carving. Very versatile. I even had a chance to go into deep snow this weekend in Austria (a very "uncarving" experience) and it was very good.
Possibly the best alpine board money can buy, definitely the best value for money.
