Default dominant vs graft

my skate banana had some serious delam issues and i let my local ski slopes repair it, they told me it would be done today but wasnt when i got there. so they let me ride some of their demo boards instead. i rode a rossignol pos it sucked im not even going to talk about it. but i also rode last years 155 graft and 154 dominant. i have always preferred rome over burton (ive had a headroom and an artifact).. but my mind had been changed today. it seemed like the flex on the dominant and graft were close to identical, they handled rails about the same, i noticed no weight diffence, but i did notice a lot of difference in pop. the burton dominant 154 had so much more spring to it than the graft, i couldnt believe it.. for the price, for those considering the graft, i would check out the dominant if you want the extra springiness. the boards seemed to be in the same condition too. i really think i have to give the nod to the burton dominant. that board is a lot nicer than i expected it to be.

ha i havent ridden a non park board in atleast 5 years, but they both did fine, both were slightly detuned but you could carve when you needed to. i would ride both of these boards all over except in deep deep powder
