Winterstick Kingwill’s Board 158 Snowboard Review 2018-2019
TESTER: John Reed
BOARD: Winterstick Kingwill’s Board 158
OVERALL IMPRESSION FROM 1 TO 7: 6
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: It just rips. Complete confidence on this shorter smaller board (for me), super fast edge-to-edge.
WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: Nothing.
OVERALL COMMENTS: This was my second favorite board of the test after the Winter Stick ST, which is saying a lot. Snowboards are incredibly complex, and this board was just confidence inspiring. I like the straight simplicity of the ST and stiffer flex, but Rob’s board was excellent.
