Jones Storm Chaser 147 SNOWBOARD REVIEW 2016

Description

TESTER: Mikey Franco

BOARD: Jones Storm Chaser 147

OVERALL IMPRESSION FROM  1 TO 10:  7

OVERALL COMMENTS: Great shape, great lines. Didn’t handle the hardpack as well as I would have liked but its got to be magic in soft snow!

RATE THE SHAPE FROM 1 TO 5:     5

SHAPE COMMENT: Snow surf city!

RATE THE FLEX FROM 1 TO 5:     4

FLEX COMMENT: very stout flex. Great overall for deep snow but not enough flex to really engage edge on hard snow.

RATE STABILITY THROUGH TURNS:    4

STABILITY THROUGH TURNS: Too stiff for hard snow, perfect for deep snow.

RATE THE GRAPHICS FROM 1 TO 5:    4

GRAPHICS COMMENT:

RATE THE POP/ PLAYFULNESS FROM 1 TO 5:    4

COMMENT ON PLAYFULNESS: short tail and taper give it a traditional swallowtail feel.

RATE FLOAT IN POW IF AVAILABLE FROM 1 TO 5:    5

COMMENT ON FLOAT IN POW: I know it floats. How could it not!

ANYTHING YOU WOULD CHANGE ABOUT THIS BOARD TO MAKE IT BETTER:  I would soften the nose a tad and give it a touch of torsional flex… If I wanted it for a resort board. Just for pow? Maybe just a touch of flex in the nose.
