Summary:
I'm 5'9" age 22, 215 lbs, been riding for 1 1/2 years. Peg myself at intermediate level.

I took my new 164 07/08 Burton T6 out today on a smaller local hill (can't wait to get back to louise), all groomers. As the previous reviews have stated, this board is frictionless, accelerates you through corners, light as h ell, quick and twitchy but in a good way. The landings on jumps are a little hard but not so bad. By the end of the day I was getting tired and losing concentration, sure enough that's when the twitch and quickness was becoming a bit of a pain in the a ss for me (but really who wouldn't say the same type of thing of any board if they weren't in the fresh riding mindset). The one real thing that caught me off guard the most was the catch the edges had and how they really whip you out of carves. I guess the best way I can explain it is, you really have to think and act on the technicality of your riding, otherwise this board will just fire you off into the trees. Defiantly a new feeling for me.

Overall, coming from a ebay starter Silence Shatter 163, I am totally floored about how responsive and quick this board is (for good reason). The board wasn't all that hard to ride for me, not like people make you think in the reviews, where they say experts only. Trust me, i'm no expert, I just started the jumps and what not, more of a speed junkie. 5 out of 5 for sure. Little expensive, but it's well worth it, you won't be disappointed.

Summary:
Read UnSane's review. He's nailed it. I've tried Customs, Custom X, and the Supermodel and the T6 is the only board that comes close to the BMC.

I still have my BMC and have ridden it side-by-side with the T6. The BMC is the best board Burton ever made. The T6 is a great board, but I don't think it edges quite as good as the BMC at high speed. And I don't think it's as quick edge to edge as the BMC. But it's the only board that even remotely comes close to the BMC
