I had a Ronix One that had tremendous pop but it liked to catch edges. You really had to be on with that board or take a rather nasty digger. At my current level of riding I'd much rather slide out of a situation than take a face plant.
The one is definitely a board you need to charge all the time and be in the right position or it can punish you. The newer shape isn't that bad, but its predecessors where killer
