boards arrived today... first impressions they feel soft hand flexing. I was hoping they would feel more like a 5 not a 7 and I'm much bigger than the suggested rider weight its gonna feel like a 4 under foot prob. I'm not sure if I will even ride them.
How does the Aloha Vibes feel compared to the Kill Switch? Is there much difference betweent the two handflexing them?
I can picture the AV feeling stiffer torsionally given the fat waist, but it would still be a bummer if it's a noodle longitudinally.
Both feel soft. Torsionally they don't feel that much better. Nitro Fusion is rated as a 7/10 its fuckin stiff. I might try the kill switch I just know im not a big fan of soft boards such a bummer. Snowboards need a universal system for stiffness its always all over the place.
Yea. 2017 Rome Blur was rated 8/10... it was MUCH less stiff than my Burton Malolo from like 2009 which was a 7/10. The United Shapes Cadet is "medium" flex but I'd call it significantly stiffer than the Blur. And then there was a circa 2014 Capita BSOD that was rated 6.5/10 was legit felt more like a 4... possibly the softest snowboard I've ever strapped into.
haha. yeah the only accurate nitros have been og squash, banker and fusion those are all stiff.
Yeah but even those I would probably rate 8-9 for myself and for nitro to have a bit more accurate of a spectrum. The graph they used to separate board models was actually pretty accurate always.
@yuns I'd like to try a Pantera. One of the few 'old-school' late 90s/early 2000s style long stiff directional boards left.
Review kill switch is dope. Haha handles pow well and chunder. Not as soft as I thought it would be. I'm a fan. It also could be because I'm at Jackson and it's my 1st day of the season so my stoke is really high. It's been a while since I've ridden the squash but it reminds me of it.
