Gentemstick Baraccuda 150, not sure? SNOWBOARD REVIEW 2016
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.
