Burton Pow Wrench 2023 - 2021 Review by The Good Ride
Burton Pow Wrench 2021-2023 Snowboard Video and Written Review
Welcome to the Burton Pow Wrench Snowboard Review from an average rider with extensive first hand knowledge of how boards ride.
Update 2023: The Burton Pow Wrench hasn’t changed much or at all so this review still stands.
Swipe Right: Somewhat Short, Semi-Wide floaty ride that isn’t bad when the powder is gone.
Swipe Left: Mediocre edge hold so if you drop in steep terrain with ice before the pow it could be sketchy.
The Burton Pow Wrench comes in widely spaced out sizing but has an easy float that could work for a mostly pow ride if it matches your specs.
Ethics Statement: We don’t get paid by the manufacturer to write these reviews and this is our unfiltered opinion. We do make money from the “Where To Buy” links, but this is our best attempt at an honest and objective review from an average riders’ perspective.

Here are some ideal boot sizes for the Burton Pow Wrench. You can of course go bigger or smaller but these have the best chance for not being hard to turn or getting toe/heel drag.
152: 9-10 US boots
158: 10-12 US boots
Shape/Camber/On Snow Feel/Ability Level
The tapered directional shape is pretty set back but doesn’t feel like you are riding on the tail. It makes the Burton Pow Wrench feel a little more between the feet than you would think. That isn’t good or bad. Just about preference.
The flat between the bindings with rocker before the tip/tail works really well for creating a stable ride that tracks well. The Burton Pow Wrench skids turns easy too and could work for an intermediate who see’s a shit ton of powder and soft snow.
The Burton Pow Wrench we had was med/stiff between the feet but felt more medium in the tip/tail where the rocker was on snow. It was pretty easy to butter and play around. Yeah there isn’t that snap that Burton boards with camber underfoot have but it still has pretty good pop on an Ollie.
The Burton Pow Wrench is not a bomber but pretty good speed if you want to point it occasionally.
The Burton Pow Wrench can turn really well through messy bumpy snow but it bucks and bounces if you try to power through or over it.
Missing the grip we prefer in harder snow because we feel even powder boards can benefit from a little extra edge hold. There have been soo many times we had to get through some hard to icy snow to get to powder.
The Burton Burton Pow Wrench is pretty middle ground in terms of turn initiation. The 152 felt medium slow but the 158 felt really slow/difficult for my size 9’s. Once you get the turn going it gets you where you want it to go. The deeper the pow the easier it turns.
We were all surprised by the Burton Pow Wrench with how well it could hold a harder turn. It is no directional camber board but it is pretty enjoyable on a carve.
The 158 was a bit too big and hard to manage for my specs but the float was easy. I didn’t even have to really worry about more back foot weight. It didn’t need to try in the almost Knee high powder. There is a healthy bit of the rocker before the nose, a healthy taper and a pretty wide width that translated to being an excellent floater. I personally liked the 3D fish for my style of riding better but the Burton Pow Wrench has a more centered feel that many will like.
The Burton Pow Wrench was a fun pow board but I liked the Burton 3D Fish a little better.
