- Name: 2010 Burton Joystick Snowboard - Men's
- Skill: Intermediate
- Use: Groomers,High Speeds,Low Speeds
- Pros: Somewhat soft so easy to manuever, Reverse camber so less edge grabbing,
- Cons: Too soft for hard carving, Chatters at high speeds,
I picked this board up last season to ride on groomers and help me get better. The first time I rode this board I fell in love with it, it's super soft and really easy to turn. It has a quick response and moves as soon as you do. I originally bought mine with Mission non EST bindings but decided that riding with the EST's might be better. After putting the Cartel EST's on it's really easy to adjust your stance while still in your bindings, so I would definitely recommend EST bindings with this board.
The only draw back I felt to the Joystick is since it is a softer board I did feel a lot of chatter at high speeds. I also felt that the board didn't hold it's edge well in icy conditions.
Overall I loved this board and would recommend it to anyone.
