Default Review Request: Forum Youngblood Gpops

Thinking of getting the Youngblood Gpops looks like everything i need Has anyone had any experience of it what? would they compare it too? Some people have said the flex is a little stiffer than the 4/10 rating they give it.

I know it's sad to say but I would recommend buying a board from a brand that still exists... Warranties etc. are out the door since Burton shut them down last year. Sad as they were one of my favorites back in the day.

Have taken that into consideration but still quite interested. Got a Camber Artifact which i love but would like something a little bit stiffer.

Alright well as long as you've taken it in to consideration. That being said if you're already on the Camber version of the Artifact (excellent choice btw) and you're looking for something noticeably stiffer I'd have to say that the boards are likely gonna be too similar in flex and you'd probably be better looking for a stiffer board. The camber version of the artifact to me already makes it feel a tad stiffer than the rocker version and if that's what you were riding I'd maybe say you were gonna like the Gpops, but to me the Camber Artifact and the Gpops had a pretty similar feeling stiffness wise...

Cheers for the info sounds like they are two very similar boards.

Don't want anything massively stiffer. The Artifact i've got is 150 and isn't ideal for the bigger jumps and is getting a bit battered, was thinking the 152 youngblood (gpops) would be a good replacement, a little stiffer for the bigger jumps but still be playful for everything else, basically very similar just a little stiffer.
