So recently i acquired a blosom fingerboard from Blosom himself on this forum. I have owned it and tested it for 22 days and i feel i'm ready to review it to the best of my ability and will do so now.
This took 1 day to come Uk to Uk. It was well packaged in a small concise bubble mailer. Extremely good shipping 10/10
The deck was beautiful. It has a lacquer incomparable to any other i have seen. It had a very well printed stamp on the top ply indicating the nose and tail neatly to the rider which whilst also reminding the rider of the company it was made by. It had very nice kicks with the nose slightly more bulbous and steep than the tail aiding the use of the deck in the switch/nollie position. The rounding is super with flat edges and neat kicks. Good rounding flows throughout the deck. The holes seemed perfect by eye and are nicely countersinked. The deck is very thing yet retains excellent "pop" and is very very stiff, stiffer than any other deck i have used. It also had a nice ply combination. Overall 10/10
The craftsmanship was brilliant the deck fitted with trucks well and is rounded extremely consistently aswell as being a nice width and thickness with well pressed plies and extremely well drilled and countersunk holes. Overall 10/10
The deck was extremely easy to set up with the holes drilled neatly and countersunk well. I set mine up with Y trucks which took a bit longer due to the Y truck screws being a hassle. 9.5/10
The performance of this deck is utterly superb. It has brilliantly crisp pop allowing for brilliant flip and height on tricks. The kicks are a perfectly mellow combination allowing me to land many tricks i haven't landed before such as nollie heelflips. The trucks stay on tight and adhesive tape sticks on well so a smooth ride is ensured. This deck is easily used on all ramps and is nice on vert ramps. This deck is not too mellow and not to hardcore, it's in the middle, catering for many different styles of rider. It is easy to land all flip tricks on and the raised and more bulbous nose allows for a good catch on kickflips amongst other flips. The deck has a very nice weight allowing for great control on tricks as well as helping manuals. The deck is easy to use and perfect as an all rounder with great length and width allowing for great versatility of tricks and versatility of situations in which you can use the deck. Overall 10/10
This deck is full of benefits. It's very nice to use, well made and a good price at 20 pounds sterling from Blosom (shipped) or 30 US dollars on flatface. It is easy to set up and works well in different environments. It also looks nice and is hand made and stamped with a seal of quality and approval. Overall, a brilliant deck and i highly recommend you acquiring one if you get the chance as they are very very nice. Final verdict 10/10
