It obviously was great for carving, ok in the park... but was terrible in powder.
I got the incline standing next to me. Do you think it's too stiff??
I understand you can get any flex from Sean, but anyways..

It depends on what you want to do with it... I found it fine for blasting carve down slopes, but I found it a bit stiff for riding in the park. Here is a video of me riding it on some rails nearly (sorry for the poor video quality, was taken nearly a decade ago).



The biggest negative for the Donek Incline is that because of its narrow profile and stiff flex it is it absolutely terrible in powder (in my opinion).

Have any of you snowboard connoisseur's ridden this Palmer Channel Titanium?

It's like ten years old, 2002 I believe.

I'm contemplating getting one. I bought a used Palmer about 6 years ago & it ripped, I sold it last year & now I wish I hadn't.

TT

Well, i got my NS Legacy now, and will be comparing to this board.
Dones is stiffer then NS.
I was told that my donek was made for 190 lbs, i'm 220-230. But: donek always on a stiffer side. Many people say this, so as you. And Incline was made for allmountain carving, and i'd use it for powder, no need in super stiff.
Narrow profile? Mine is 28cm waist =) It's wider and longer then Legacy. And i got almost no problems in pow.
Anyway, i'd check out this in a couple of weeks and then decide.

If it has a 28 cm waist that is a Donek Sasquatch, not the Incline (my Incline 155 had a 24.1 cm waist... the "Donek Wide" model has a 26 cm waist). Just like your Legacy is the Wide version of my Never Summer SL. I am surprised you got a Legacy instead of a Heritage X.

A board that is made for someone 40 lbs lighter is obviously going to be much less stiff (imagine me riding a board made for someone 110 lbs)

I definately got an Incline written on a spec list.
I've checked a donek website, and found no Sasquatch there.
The shape on mine is different from what google shows me for "incline". Honestly the nose looks like saber. Shape is kinda like Prior BX.
I'd post a detailed photos later. Here's spec list from my Instagram: http://instagram.com/p/RHOkMij2Jm

I bought a Legacy, because Heritage X was 167cm and Legacy 174. The weight suggestions were like 200 for Heritage and 240 for legacy, or like that.

well, it'd be not 110 for you, but 130, use % .
At first i gonna use it as allmountain ) powder + softboot carving.
For second, you said that your Incline was too stiff. I think that one will be too stiff for 190lbs person and just fine for my 220-230lbs )

Anyway, one ride is better then all the posts here, so i'm waiting for more snow here. Took a ride on NS this weekend BTW.

Okay so three confirmed buyers including myself at the moment.

Nick K (Alberta)
Aaron P (Alberta) <-possibly buying two boards
Lamberto S (Cleveland)

Any other takers? No need to reply if you're out from this point on. Let me know if you're in and we'll go from there. Or send me an e-mail to matti_matrix at hotmail dot com...

I haven't, but hear good things about the Palmer Platinum from a few years ago. Looks like whoever was riding that used the most setback possible...

Hey TT you should buy one of these Virus board! lol Aren't you somewhere roughly in my neck of the woods?

Front page, click on SPECS (note the waist widths).
