But still, a full hammer weighted keyboard will still be a better choice than a lighter weight board.

have you tried the roland's (ivory feel) keybed? (G8, RD700GX) im not a total fan of their piano sound, but thats a good keybed, especially if you like heavy actions.

I can't honestly say I have, at least not on the G. I've never been a fan of roland's workstation sound (as you state), so I've never really looked at them. Unfortunately, I live an inconvenient distance from Sam Ash, and even they don't stock a lot of things on the floor, so I don't get a real chance on trying much gear out. Normally, I have to buy a synth based on sound alone that I hear on a youtube video, and sort of have to rely on luck for the keys to feel right. I need to upgrade to an 88 note board anyways at some point, as even the PC3's keybed feels a little weak to me. Not sure how the PC3x's is though.
