Gentemstick Baraccuda 150, not sure? SNOWBOARD REVIEW 2016

Description

TESTER: Josh Reid

BOARD: Gentemstick Baraccuda 150, not sure?

OVERALL IMPRESSION FROM  1 TO 10:  7

OVERALL COMMENTS: Hard to get a good feel of what this board really does because of lack of pow. But I had fun.

RATE THE SHAPE FROM 1 TO 5:     4

SHAPE COMMENT: Great shape for a wide, short swallow.

RATE THE FLEX FROM 1 TO 5:     4

FLEX COMMENT: I think this board needed to be stiff for how long it was. Fun for the side slashing.

RATE STABILITY THROUGH TURNS:    4

STABILITY THROUGH TURNS: Stiffness seemed to let this board hang well through turns for those times when I didn’t break the tail loose for a slash.

RATE THE GRAPHICS FROM 1 TO 5:    4

GRAPHICS COMMENT: Bamboo top is great.

RATE THE POP/ PLAYFULNESS FROM 1 TO 5:    3

COMMENT ON PLAYFULNESS: In pow it probably isn’t a problem, but on old snow the width made this board a bit of work edge to edge in places like Rendezvous Bowl. On that short, icy mid-mountain wiggle, the width made this board a bear to get from edge to edge. Definitely not the board for icy wiggles.

RATE FLOAT IN POW IF AVAILABLE FROM 1 TO 5:   

COMMENT ON FLOAT IN POW: Looks like it would be great.
