RATE THE SHAPE FROM 1 TO 5: 3
RATE THE FLEX FROM 1 TO 5: 3
RATE STABILITY THROUGH TURNS: 2
STABILITY THROUGH TURNS: Heelside for this board was compromised by the short length of the edge for me. I leaned over the heelside nose of the board in a mogul area and fell over the nose of the board. In general, I couldn’t get a good feel of the heelside and the toeside didn’t pull into arcs as well as other boards in the test.
