The Bhangra is the spiritual successor to the Dancer and became my go to board because of the practicality (size and amazingly good grip tape) but it lacked the magic of the Dancer (the absurd 54 inches made it truly unique board).
I have a Flex 1 of both boards and the Bhangra isn't as stiff, which makes it a bit rougher on down hill but over all, its a manageable board. As one might expect, its a bit heavy, and feels heavier than the Dancer (or more accurately, denser) but manages to move. Its large enough for dancing and the kick tails are more manageable for tricks. For board grabs, kicks, and what not, its more manageable than the few other 48+ boards I've ridden. As much as I loved my Dancer (more than the Bhangra) I'll admit the Bhangra is a much better all around board. You won't find a better versatile board over the 45 inch mark than the Bhangra.
Its a rare beast, and fantastic to learn to dance on, and perform board grab tricks as its size actually benefits tricks like tiger claws, making it a much more "upright" standing tricks. If you're looking for the perfect board to slide or bomb hills with, this wouldn't be my first choice but in skilled hands, its capable of each. I've commuted with it but then again I didn't mind commuting with even larger boards and its surprisingly nimble as the wheel base is the same as most 44-45 inch boards.
-Cruising is a breeze (Good bearings and decent sized wheels (I use 72.5 Baluts and 70 mm Stimulus)
-Durable Durable Durable; puts my Switch to shame
-Great for Dancing and doing tricks
-Like most Loaded boards, there's flex in the board so it's not optimal for downhill per-say.
-Sliding can be harder than normal
-Weight of board (So many materials put into board to make it's longevity last so sacrifices were made)
-Height off ground can cause strain on pushing legs (weight also contributes to this).
I'm not letting the cons outweigh the pros in an even face off so it keeps the 5 star ranking. REMEMBER: Creating some variations with this board will help it do things like slide and downhill; just come up with some.

PEEL. STICK. ART.
This month, all orders over $19.95 get the newest sticker of the month. When robots take over the world, it will surely be more or less like when humans did: Some will be jerks, some will gather all the power, and some will just want to shred. Ted Cocuzza envisions a world where robots still have the freedom to throw a steezy layback grind on a DIY spot when they feel the need.
As always, every order will come with two free classic Daddies stickers at no cost. We know... we're sweet.
