The Burton Name Dropper is a whole different approach to building a park board. It features an asymmetrical core, edges, and flex for an ergonomically correct ride. Burton also milled out the core to make the deck as thin as possible. That gives the board a soft, even flex and a ridiculously playful feel. Do you see those black panels at the binding mount points? Those add thickness so you can mount your bindings normally, because the rest of the board is too thin for normal binding mounts. Of course, the Name Dropper uses Burton's revolutionary Channel System, which provides an infinite number of angles so you can get your stance exactly right. The underfoot panels also provide a bit of damping to smooth out the rough stuff and take the majority of the shock out of hard landings. The Name Dropper's profile is flat between and under the bindings with rocker at the tip and tail. This adds to the board's playful feel while it adds to your confidence on rails, boxes, and even in the air. How good is it? The Name Dropper is the proud recipient of the Transworld Good Wood 2014 award. That's pretty damn good.

Purchased and you should to!
This board is wonderful, soft and playful but still able to boost off the big boy booters.
Reverse camber makes it playful and forgiving on snow and rails. This board features a fully asymmetrical build meaning your toe edge is different then your heel edge, We all edge different on the toe edge then we do on the heels. To make it so it doesn't chatter at high speeds, they milled the core out under your feet and filled with a dense dampening material (fillet of flex).
I enjoy riding softer boards for many reasons, though hitting big jumps with a noodle is a terrible idea! the photo above shows this! haha. couldn't hold its edge up the lip and released putting my ass into the lip. Thats why camber and or stiffer boards are a bit better
