Forum John Jackson Pro - Snowboards: Reviews

HIGH FLYER

Like the Tahoe-based hucker for whom it's named, this one is all about the park. The Jackson Pro's true-twin shape and easy swing weight allow for solid spins and switch riding. "Superstiff and powerful, this thing tore through the park," remarked one tester after multiple laps. Strips of lightweight carbon stiffen the wood core's laminate, making this one of the year's twitchiest boards—though probably not one for beginners, who'll likely find it too reactive and the torsion too stiff. Smaller riders, or those who hike a lot, might also find it a bit heavy. 158; forumsnowboards.com
