TESTER: Eric Odlin
BOARD: Igneous No Name 168
TEST YEAR: 2019 SHAPERSUMMIT SNOWBOARD REVIEWS
OVERALL IMPRESSION FROM 1 TO 7: 6
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: Great JH top to bottom shred stick.
WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: A hair soft in the tail, a bit long in the sidecut.
OVERALL COMMENTS: A great Big Mountain ripper. Feel at home in Jackson variable snow conditions. Floats in the fluff, pushes through in thick stuff, quite quick in the trees for a such a large board (was just wide enough:), and carved nice too. The tail felt a touch soft, and a tighter sidecut would have taken up it groomer game a few notches. This is very close to what I would design for a daily JH driver.
