Default Review: 157 Burton Monkey Wrench 2012 (JJones)

Conditions:

Weather - low temps, overcast with a bit of snowfall

Slopes - hardpack, ice

Park - ice

Setup:

157 Burton Monkey Wrench (JJones) 2012, Burton Cartels EST 2012

Mid-wide, true twin, traditional camber, stiff advanced freestyle board with loads of pop.

Also, good on groomers - decent at carving and stable at speed.

I suspect the kicker with this board is in its shape because in addition to the overall traditional camber, right between the bindings there is an extra rail shaped groove (like an extra mini-camber within the camber). Obviously, this has been placed there for hitting rails/handrails. If you still don't know what I'm talking about maybe the pictures will explain it better...
