Alloy Sniper 2019 - 2016 Review by The Good Ride

The Alloy Sniper is an old school camber board that was very well known in the early 2000s but these days is rarer. It’s a fun poppy carvy camber board but it’s got the same limitations in terms of float and forgiving nature that camber has.  In a lot of ways, it feels like a similar ride to the Slash ATV and Burton Custom X but a little better suited for lighter riders.

I am Korean snowboarder. I started 8yesrs ago.
Before I bought 16/17 Alloy Sniper. I used Japanese snowboard.
I used it too many years. I had to change board. There were good and bad issues of Alloy snowboards last year. I was worried to buy Sniper. Becuase most Korean snowboard brands were out of business or selling cheap brand. Or hide it is Korean brand and pretend to foreign brand. So I emailed to Gatsby(Owner of Alloy snowboard and great snowboard gear reviewer)
He emailed me back. 'Try our 16/17 trial Alloy boards first. 16/17 Alloy snowboards are all innovations. just ride it and give us thought."
16/17 Alloy Sniper was really good. much better than I expected. Really fast and great edge grip and great reaction.It was little difficult to control. but, I enjoyed very much. I gave back to Gatsby trial Sniper. I told him my thought about sniper. and He said thank you for enjoying and help to innovate. I went to shop and bought Sniper. I am proud of Alloy snowboard is Korean brand.
