So a few on here have posted threads about their
Coil boards, and a few have occasionally commented about
their Coils on other threads, but overall there is very
little discussion here on the erBB about these. Every
single review I've read about them (mostly on Sways) has
been overwhelmingly positive, both from a ride and durability
standpoint. So, if you have a Coil, or have had one in the
past, post up!
Pictures, reviews, overall experiences...whatever. If you're
not familiar with 'em at all, read through this thread
to hear the Swaylocks crew's thoughts:
Coil Ride Reports from Sways

I will be placing an order for one myself very soon...

I really liked mine, the things that really stand out are:

- load up on carves, the board bends, then shoots you, made my roundhouses better than ever

- durability was ridiculous, I got mine with glass-ons, saw it come through the oversize items door at the airport with size 14 boot prints all over it, not a ding. The board is ridiculously strong, and I haven't ever worried about it on flights

- Mike Daniels puts the volume measurement on the boards. That is invaluable especially since I lost a lot of weight since then.

I'll be ordering a Coil again for sure


Like a blind man at an orgie, I was gonna have to feel my way around.

I've never heard anything bad against these boards. Alot of shapers in FL are doing these but I don't think anyone has the process down like Brasingtons.

I've only had the opportunity to ride it a few times.
So it still a little hard to give a real in depth review.But the the few I've had have been pretty good .Over all seems to have good drive and butter smooth round house cutties.rode it as a quad once,but it felt over finned.Again that was only one session and I didn't have an opportunity to adjust the fins so take that with a grain of salt.Ridden twice set up Griffinesq 5 fin.So far I like this set up much better than the quad(the quad are also Griffins again w/ only one session and not to many waves)Boards is a decent paddler but by no means a paddling beast,again could just need more time on it.I think most Coils are foiled fairly thin

On a side bar:
100% hand made in the US
my board shaped by Mike Daniels
Glass/construction by the Brasington bros.
Kirk Brasington also an accomplished shaper
Shaping for some east coast pros(if you care about those things)
A google search of Kirk came up with this youtube vid
I have no idea if Chris ward is riding a Coil(lost) or not
don't shoot the messenger

I'm trying to convince Mike Daniel to join the fray over
here...we'll see. I know a couple posters have multiple
Coils now and would love to see them post up their thoughts
here.
