What is the downside of pop rods? The more pop the better, right?
The asymmetrical sidecut looks like a really cool idea.
to be honest, i don't know of the downsides of pop rods, haven't ridden a board with them for an extended period of time. for what it's worth, forest bailey won the ollie contest @ mt hood with the strange trip, beating out some pros on poprodded boards. just a testament to who and how you ride it.
