     also want to add, that rook's tips are slightly lifted, mm or 2, hardly noticeable, thought my floor is curved here and there but tried various positions, not that it really matters or bothers me, more like the opposite

    I have to agree. I thought maybe it was due to my apartment floor not being completely level, but now that you mention it too I think the tips are slightly lifted as well

    Really been loving the Rook. Doesnt feel as "dead" as some other flat boards.

     yep, it's becoming my fav allaround deck aswell, ultrafear might still be on top when it comes strictly to park though. I mean i really like softer tips and stiffer inbetween construction and i know you said 2013 will be the opposite again, i am thinking of getting 152 aswell so it's pretty much '12 vs '13 but on the other hand i haven't tried '13 yet so i can't really know. You probably tried only '13, would like to hear opinion on both constructions, vs.

    I mean its a true twin high end park board (MSRP $500) so its got great construction. The whiplash core is thinner in between the inserts and thicker under foot and passed the inserts which allows for easy presses and decent snap (for a flat board). Its very playful without being "loose." The base is fast. The shape is slightly blunted. Its just an all round fun board and a team favorite.

     Does the flat T1 ride much different from the rook?

     Pretty similar rides. The main differences are the Rook is a midwide, The Rook has Carbon stringers while the T1 has pop band (basically strategic triax) and the Rook has ballistic impact panels under foot. Basically the Rook has a few more bells and whistles.

    Also if anyone wants to try a 2013 demo... Alta still has snow. Hiking there Monday (possibly with Enn Zed) and I would be stoked to get you guys on some boards and give them a whirl. Andy (Enn) rode a T1 last week.

    Not enough shops ordered them and I guess they were pricey to make. Which means you guys get a pretty good deal on 20k pants

    Parker, any noticeable difference between the 12 and 13 Rook? (I'm assuming you've ridden both?) I see that they've made some upgrades from 12 to 13, especially w the whiplash core.

    Whiplash core is pretty much the only difference. Went from a basalt stringer to a carbon stringer as well. I have only ridder 2013 boards so I wouldn't be able to fairly compare the difference.
