Soulmotion Swallowtail 48 SNOWBOARD REVIEW 2016

Description

 

TESTER: Mikey Franco

BOARD: Soulmotion Swallowtail 48

OVERALL IMPRESSION FROM  1 TO 10:  8

OVERALL COMMENTS: a great board that needs powder to be fully realized.

RATE THE SHAPE FROM 1 TO 5:     4

SHAPE COMMENT: Powder riders dream shape. Can most likely handle the deepest of days. Swallowtail seems to be a bit vulnerable on anything hard.

RATE THE FLEX FROM 1 TO 5:     4

FLEX COMMENT: Maybe loosen the nose a bit, and defend the tail with some more volume maybe.

RATE STABILITY THROUGH TURNS:    4

STABILITY THROUGH TURNS: Very solid. Clearly this board would be a blast in the right conditions.

RATE THE GRAPHICS FROM 1 TO 5:    5

GRAPHICS COMMENT: Beautiful. My kind of topsheet!

RATE THE POP/ PLAYFULNESS FROM 1 TO 5:    4

COMMENT ON PLAYFULNESS: Very playful considering its width on hard snow. Great surf influence.

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

COMMENT ON FLOAT IN POW: it should levitate!

ANYTHING YOU WOULD CHANGE ABOUT THIS BOARD TO MAKE IT BETTER:  Instead of putting carbon in the tail, I might give it more material volume instead. Reduce overall “notch” and redirect arcs of fins to provide more strength and stability.
