Cory L.wrote a review of Rome Pow Division Swallow Tail Snowboard on February 4, 2016
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Build Quality- Nothing detrimental, but I did notice that there is two parallel lines running down the base and one of the edges on the swallow tail doesn't quite meet up nicely.
Impressions: This is a stiffer board than the hovercraft. It's able to support my weight and keep me stable. There is very little nose rocker, it seems fairly flat. This board is noticeably heavy compared to the Jones and Camel. My first run I used reference stance and was disappointed in the float. I moved to full back and it feels much more buoyant (maybe because i'm fat). This also results in less potential tail pop. It's not the fastest edge to edge but is still very manageable.
I've been riding northern Japan on Camel Toe, Hovercraft, and Omni. This board feels more fun and stable to ride on the steeps, but it's not overly impressive on Japan's mellow powder run outs. This may very well be because of my weight. It doesn't under perform, but it's also not amazing on the mellow sections. I'm happy to have this board in my quiver, and I don't anticipate grabbing one of my others for the rest of the season because this is still fun even on groomed runs.
