BEST FOR: An all-around good time.
THE TEST: The Annex 108 doesn’t really have a weak spot. The wood core and metal construction make chatter a nonissue. There’s just enough sidecut to rail groomers. And a bit of tip rocker and tip taper make the Annex loose and surfy in resort powder. 139/108/127
THE VERDICT: A versatile tool that, thanks to built-in skin attachments, is backcountry-ready.
