    Standing them up distorts some how tapered they are, laying them done makes them look less tapered. For comparison ,the Crossbows are symmetric

      Although they say 119, Jeff says they are actually ,117, which makes them just a tad longer then the crossbows, wider tip then Crossbows but narrower tail, Crossbows are rocker camber rocker, Slingshot has non rockered tail, camber, and rockered tip

        The Slingshots look like beasts.

        BTW: I am surprised you are still allowed to buy Skiboards or use them given your latest adventure!

            Here is a picture side by side of Crossbows and Slingshots side to side with risers and binding both center mounted,. Interesting that the Slingshots even though on the center inserts look a tad rear mounted, that alond with the tapered non rockered tail might allow me to ride them center in all conditions which would be cool. I have to ride Crossbows rear mounted in pow.

              They look great! Mine were delivered earlier this week, but I haven't had a chance to go pick them up yet. Thanks for the pics!

                Are they capped or sidewall, Jack?

                  They are sidewall. Construction, stiffness, seems similar to Crossbows.

                      ps. Jeff says he does have 3 Slingshots still available in stock and they can be bought as bare boards without the bindings . The web site in error said that the bare boards were sold out and only boards with bindings were available.

                        Were these like a prototype run? I guess Iím just surprised they are just about sold out so early

                          No , Jeff ordered a small amount of product to have early in the season. . There will be more Spruce skiboards including the Slingshots coming later this month in a few weeks with his second shipment.
