Description

TESTER: Alli Noland

BOARD: Pallas Hedonist 152?

OVERALL IMPRESSION FROM  1 TO 7:  5

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: Stability, bruh

WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: S-low on flats

OVERALL COMMENTS: I liked riding the Hedonist, but it could have been a little softer still. It had good energy and plenty of pop, but seemed to be really slow across the flats – might have needed an edge sharpening? It was good across all conditions -enjoyed each aspects, except flats

RATE THE SHAPE FROM 1 TO 7:  6

SHAPE COMMENT: NOT JUST GOOD BUT GOOD ENOUGH

ADDITIONAL SHAPE COMMENTS:  seems pretty standard all-mountain shape. I thinbk they said it’s got a flat bottom, which is different, took a little getting used to, but offered good all-mtn riding

RATE THE FLEX FROM 1 TO 7:   OK

FLEX COMMENT:  TOO STIFF

ADDITIONAL FLEX COMMENT:  Still too stiff. I like a noodle that snaps.

RATE STABILITY THROUGH TURNS FROM 1 TO 7:   6

STABILITY COMMENT: PRETTY GOOD

ADDITIONAL STABILITY COMMENTS: All I know is it held an edge the whole way down (bowl – cheyenne woods – wiggle – anamometer ridge)

RATE THE POP/ PLAYFULNESS FROM 1 TO 7:  OK

COMMENT ON PLAYFULNESS:

ADDITIONAL COMMENT ON PLAYFULNESS:  Getting there, but might have been impeded by flat bottom?

RATE FLOAT IN POW FROM 1 TO 7:    5

COMMENT ON FLOAT IN POW: EASY TO STAY UP

ADDITIONAL COMMENT ON FLOAT IN POW: all mountain fun

RATE THE GRAPHICS FROM 1 TO 7:  5

GRAPHICS COMMENT: OK

ADDITIONAL GRAPHICS COMMENTS: not in love with graphics, but that’s SO subjective

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE TO SAY: Keep up the good work, Ladies!
