Got a the global warmer as a warranty replacement of a defective evil twin. The GW is really not just a jib board. Ths board is wide and does pretty well on powder and tree runs. It is super light and handles jumps pretty well. I find poppy and super stable in the air. Edges are not as sharp as the evil twin, it took me some time to get use to it specially on ice you won't have much control! I love this board!
This I my second Bataleon, I also have a Magic Carpet 158. I am 6 ft 3 and weight about 210-215, size 13 boot.
Since I am bigger guy I picked up a156W, I am so happy companies are making short wide boards, it is a dream come true and 3BT is an absolute monster for progression. The Global Warmer is such a fun ride, I picked this board up because of its softness, 3.5, I wanted something more playful and I am a huge camber fan. This board is not only super easy to butter on the flats but locking onto boxes is effortless. I was nailing tail presses all weekend and locking 50-50’s easy. Although it is a jib board, I had no problems laying down carves, frontside spins yeeting off side hits into switch carves. It pops great and ollies snap like Rice Crispies. I really like the flex profile of this board, its soft on the tail and nose for buttery goodness yet it’s very springy and responsive, I never once felt like the edge would give. Once you start flexing into this baby you can feel the power and response of the camber, she gets down and dirty. 3BT takes a few runs to get used to but once you get the feel for edge transition it’s THE BEST!!! Haven’t taken it through pow yet but I am sure it will slay like other 3BT woods I have ridden. The uplift is nice, you can spin forever it seems and not get hung up. Lastly, it’s super slick but after one day of moderate shred in the mini park and rest of the hill, it was a little sluggish the following day so I will wax her up. Overall excellent ride, anything Bataleon makes that you think fits your riding style, it will and 3BT will progress your ability and they are so much fun to ride. You’re doing the shred Gods work Bataleon,
