Never Summer SnowTrooper
 
Has anyone demoed one of these? How does it compare to the Cobra? Has it changed much from the SL?
Thanks in advance

Yeah I have sorry for the late response I don’t look here to much. It is like the SL but with longer camber zones so you can get more pop from the board. I used a 160 and a 154 the 154 was great with 8 inches of new snow. Only problem was it did get tossed around being a small size so that is why I went with a 160 also. The 160 was point and go not chairman point and go but more like a f1. If I was to get the trooper I would get a 156-158 being 185 lbs and it would be a perfect all mtn board for me. It was like they sprinkled a little more fairy crack on the board and made it what I wish the SL was last year.

Thanks readimag sounds like you rode them on a pretty good day. Did you ride the wide version? Anyone else give this board a try?

This website is selling the limited graphics Snowtrooper for $363.95 Never Summer Snowtrooper Snowboard - Men's - LTD Graphic - Free Shipping - christysports.com

Lot cheaper than the $519.99 I've seen for the non limited release graphics. They might have messed up on listing their price.

Just got a Snowtrooper X 164 today (I'm a bigger dude, 6'2" 230, sz 13's) and for the money I couldn't be happier (got one the "limited graphic" decks from Christy Sports).
Yeah, I haven't even ridden it for real yet, but I rode the Legacy 163 last year and can just tell this thing is a measurable upgrade; the newer ripsaw shape just makes the board feel lighter, and the extended camber (from hoping around on the rug lol) seems to have noticeably more pop. I can't wait to ride this thing; for about $360ish, I'll be riding a 2015 board with the latest tech. Yeah, camo is played out, but who cares about graphics anyway. I'm pretty sure I scored the best deal I'll see, as I'd probably have ended up with the $500 "more marketable graphic" version anyways... It's the same do- it-all SL/Legacy, just way better!
