Reviewer Steef

"In powder I want float and a bit of flex. I don't mind to work hard for a perfect powder run, as long as it pays off. Blue skies, bottomless powder describes paradise. Looking for adventure sometimes brings me to the edge."

Very nice in powder

The Burton Panhandler (tested at 156 cm) is short and wide. Perfect for anything you want to do in deep snow. On groomers the Panhandler has good grip for long carving turns. In short turns and disordered terrain it has less performance and there is not any pop noticeable. But Burton Panhandler is a nice looking board and if you use it for the powder days, you wil love it.

Playful in deep snow

The Burton Panhandler is very good in deep snow. Short or long turns, speeding through powder fields or manoeuvre through a forest, you name it, Panhandler delivers. For that a 5 star rating. But once the terrain gets bumpier and packed, you'll have to be careful to keep your balance or the nose will shoot to the sky before you notice. In those circumstances you must keep constant focus which I found annoying after a while. A 3 star rating for me for the total package of the Burton Panhandler.

Burton about the Panhandler

"A short, quick and agile pow-seeker, designed to cash in on the mountain's hidden stashes.", says Burton.
Yes, for powder it is. For other use you might look elsewhere. "
