For our latest Product of the Week, feast your eyes on what we made of Forum’s Scallywag – a park-friendly jib stick.
No one’s gonna miss you on this bad boy, that’s for sure. You’ll have fellow pirates calling ‘Aaaarrrgghhh!’ at you as the distinctive base gets flashed when you pull your knuckle stunts. But beyond the look of the topsheet and base, is this the weapon for you and your riding? Read on…
Lengths: 151, 155, 158
Tested Length: 158
Forum claim their Scallywag to be “more durable than any other, and will allow your park pillaging to go on all day.” Aimed at park freestyle, the shape is a true twin as you’d expect and now has a ChillyDog with Pop base profile that allows it to be soft enough to butter your muffin with, yet with enough wang on it to deal with the bigger kicker line.
Our English Ed took one for a spin at the end of last season and dropped this review: “Fun. Nuff said… The Scallywag is perfectly suited to jibbers or anyone wanting to mess around on a fun-flexed soft shred stick. Not for aggressive shredders but anyone after a fun-ass freestyler for the park or dome would find this 100% PERFECT. I noticed I wrote the word ‘fun’ in there 3 times which, while being bad writing sums up this board to a tee.”
