Brandywine... So this is the Prior you formerly mentioned she's liking a lot... Been eyeing the split version since it's newly in the line up of an online split retailer but I've never ridden a Prior...
Yeah she LOVES it! She's a member of this forum, I'll have to ask her to pipe up a bit on the board. It's got good construction quality. After seeing her board I'd think strongly about the mens freeride (same board just mens version).
Here's a couple more pics of it:
You can see the mild camber underfoot, and early rise nose. Great all around freeride board...
It's the equivalent to the Brandywine and should be a good board. I like that type of camber profile, and the construction looks good.
I asked them to make me a Freeride with a BX shape, but they said they didn't have anymore BX cores.
It looks like a sweet board, something I'd be looking for as a second option but I don't even have a board right now, had to return mine because of a defect but was told it'll be no problem. Even the store confirmed its fucked.
For this year L to R, 2012 Smokin' Mailorder Bride 159 w/ NOW IPOs, 2013 Salomon Villain 158 w/NOW IPOs, out of the rotation for the moment 2012 Arbor Westmark 156 and 2006 Capita BSOD 161. Not pictured is a 2011 Status Uno 161 w/ K2 Uprises that I am in the middle of painting.

I'd very interested in her comments on it. Sure, the split will mostly be in fresh; but there's always the lower part of the mountain with frozen snow or chewed up icy sections, so I'd really like to hear what she thinks about edgehold and it's flex.
The women's section here is pretty empty
