Its posts like this that actually help me gauge what I can do to make my reviews better. I try to include what boot I was using, its size, the conditions, location, my weight (although I think I forgot to mention that when I posted up my stuff, but maybe I didn't),and the bindings I used.

I'd like to think I could ride a lunch tray down a hill if I had to. But when I take a board out I test for pop, edge hold, ability to rail a carve, speed, slow speed, butters, boost, torsional stiffness, longitudinal stiffness, bomb drop stability, trees, chop, moguls, pow (if available), how it rode in the conditions its meant for, how it rode in the conditions its not meant for. I then try to evaluate it for the average rider not the park kid or snowboard bum like myself. If you can think of ways I could improve how I do my reviews that'd be awesome.
