    Comments about GNU Pickle PBTX Snowboard - Blem 2014:

    So far I have 6 full days of New England riding on this board at Mount Snow & Stratton. I have put it through varying conditions from a foot of fresh pow to riding on an icebrick in a downpour last weekend. This board has definitely brought a new light to my riding. Fun, fast, and will take anything you throw at it with good feel. From the park to the woods to groomers I don't have any complaints. I was a little nervous to buy based on it's noted skew towards park riding, but if you like to make any terrain your playground, this board is well suited to do so.

    Comments about GNU Pickle PBTX Snowboard - Blem 2014:

    When the board is fully flexed it creates stress cracking sounds that are not normal for a board with a 5.5 to a 6.5 flex rate considering my lightweight and that the board is a couple sizes to large.
