Great gigging keyboard

I really did not want to like the Nord Stage 2 EX because I had been playing a Kurzweil PC2x that I had covetted for a while. But the Nord is just so good for gigging. Extremely light weight and I really like the semi weighted keys - you can cross genres and organ/synth/piano and once you get used to the touch sensitivity - you can really make it sing or scream. My case is heavier than the keyboard, but That is because I used to beat the crap out of the Kurzweil in its soft case.
