Review: 09/10 Never Summer Circuit-R
 
I just recieved this board as a birthday present this week along with a sesh to HCSC, so I'll be updating it after a day or two more of riding at Mt Hood Meadows and my session at High Cascade.
Stats:
Board size: 151
Bindings:Rome 390 08-09
Height:5'9"
Weight:145lbs

So far I can tell that this board is a directional twin, which I didn't know when i got it. The tail is a little stiffer than the nose and it feels like it's gonna be a perfect flex for my riding style.

How's abouts you don't make a review until you actually have time with it?

Not trying to sound like a dick, but it would be a little more respected if you came down with the review all at once.

Who knows, maybe I'm just a snotty bastard.

Grats on the new stick btw! Having a new stick in the mail is one of the most exciting things in my life these days ( =

Yeah that is what I said. I'm gonna review it after I have 6-7 days on it. 1-2 days left in the season plus a sesh at high cascade= 6-7 days

are you positive its a directional twin? i feel like the most jibby board in their line would be a true twin.

I meant you shouldn't even make a post until you've got a real review done.

I know I will unlikely look at this thread again because I know it doesn't even have a review in it....

Just trying to give you a pointer

It's a true twin your fiberglass just hasn't broken in yet.

What a worthless thread.

bubbachubba340 05-16-2010 02:20 PM

Well I rode it yesterday and it still feels like a directional flex.

Yeah. What Vince said was that the sidecut is centered but the materials are 1/4 inch offset toward the tail, which means that the core thickness is thicker in the tail and also the nose is slightly longer than the tail. Vince also said this is true in the Evo.

This is what I actually said " It is completely centered on the effective edge and the core is tapered exactly the same, but since there is just .25" more material on the tip there is slightly less taper on the tail. Making the tail just slightly stiffer than the nose. On the snow it should feel bi-directional because you are riding on the effective edge and it's centered. But when you flex it standing up, since there more kick and length in the nose it will feel stiffer."

Like Burton Avenger said you just need to break the board in a bit and adjust to it.
