Board: Marhar Woodsman
Camber Choice: Flat to rocker within the nostril and tail that begins after the inserts.
Bindings: Bent Metallic Transfers Medium
Stance: Goofy, 21in broad, 18/zero
Boots: DC Tucknee
My Weight: 155lbs
Situations: Late season spring pow, 5-Eight inches with extra blown up in some areas. A little bit heavier however good snow.
Flex: Stiff by means of a lot of the board, essentially the most quantity of flex comes out of the nostril however boards this quick are just about all the time on the stiffer facet. Rock stable tail and a stiffer torsional flex.
Stability: By the gentle snow and chopped up pow it held its line in addition to something this quick can. By actually tough stuff it will get bounced round and you actually experience over it than really by means of any of it.
Ollies/Pop: This in need of a tail doesn’t actually provide very a lot. Just about all of the snap you’re gonna get is gonna come out of you legs. It’s as much as you to get your self into the air.
Butterability: The tail with excessive pace butters in gentle snow is nice. It pushes by means of and gives a brilliant enjoyable really feel. There may be simply sufficient tail there you could nonetheless push into it and it’s lots stiff sufficient to put into whenever you do.
Carving: Nice turning by means of gentle snow and slashing round. On more durable snow it’s common at greatest. Hold your weight from getting too far in direction of the tail and it’ll get the job accomplished, however not likely a board I’m grabbing if there isn’t any gentle snow to be discovered.
Rider in Thoughts: Anybody searching for a quantity shifted pow deck
Private Ideas: I’ve been on a lot of the quantity shifted pow decks on the market, and discover that they typically are available in two flavours. I usually experience someplace round 158 for a traditional pow oriented board, a daily quantity shift places me into the 150-154 vary, after which there may be what I’ve been calling extremely quantity shift boards, beneath 150. Truthfully till I rode the Woodsman, I had simply accepted that extremely quantity shift boards weren’t for me. Nicely, the Woodsmen is the board for me. It’s fast and nimble with sufficient board to not really feel too kicked round and the correct mix of sidecut and stiffness to not be a boring turner. In my view it’s nonetheless a quiver board primarily for gentle snow, however just about the one sub 150cm board I’d think about for myself, it’s simply extraordinarily rideable.
