I picked up a 157 sherlock toward the end of this season. Im usually shredding at night so the conditions are variable and mostly icey. The edge hold awesome and the board doesn't chatter on bombers. The board is labeled by burton for pow but it performs amazingly all-mountain. Its great for Jibbing, flex is still good for park. Buttering isnt a problem, no regrets.

The Burton Sherlock has been well received by everyone who has ridden it. It was one of our most demoed decks of the year. The crazy thing about the Sherlock is new technology Burton calls "side effects", this lengthens the surface area at the tip and the tail contact points to improve edge hold and allow the board to plane easier in powder.
You can really feel the difference between this deck and any other. It is crazy how much of a difference that extra little bit makes. The board will blow through any type of snow at any resort. The new Sherlock has found it's self, now it is time for you to find it.
I am trying to decide between this board, and Custom Flying V. I was really sold on the Custom, but I really like what I've heard about this board as of late. Any advice??

the custom is more a all mtn board. it will work well in the park, pow and slopes. the sherlock will be super fun in the park and pow because of its shape. if ur more into freestyle get the sherlock.

The sherlock is an amazing board. The new tech called side effects allows this board to flow like crazy in deep snow. It has flying V as well. This board is soo fun, you will not be disappointed in either board though. Both decks are great.

What more can i say about this New Board from Burton. It has everything you need to take it out and have a fun time in any condition. Some of the new tech on this board is what makes it a keeper. With elongated contacts points your grip through turns; on this Flying V Rocker is nothing short of amazing. The playful ride and extreme float you'll have in powder turns all conditions into your own personal terrain park. With a twin Shape and a directional flex this free ride machine is the perfect blend of big mountain aggressive and loose freestyle park.
Headed up to Valhalla Powder Cats in BC in January and need a powder board. Looking at this and the Malolo. I'm 5'8" 170lbs and am intermediate/advanced. Should I be looking at the 157 or 160 Sherlock? How does the Sherlock compare to the Malolo in deep pow? I ride a UnInc and Hero now for reference. Thanks!

I've got a 157 UnInc and a 155 Hero. I just want to make sure if I get a Sherlock that it's 1) good for pow and 2) isn't too close to what I already have. I'm going to be with a lot of skiers on this trip so want to have the right board/size and not be worried about holding them up. Thanks for the advice so far!

If you only want a deep snow board then run the malolo, that board is a dream in 2 feet of powder. If you would like to ride a board all over, then the sherlock is your board. The sherlock kills it, it floats crazy well in the powder and kills it as an all mountain board. The 157 sherlock is your jam.

Not gonna lie, I've been a Lib snob for quite some time now but this board has changed everything for me. I took this board out on two separate occasions at Snowbird. One day was your standard bottomless day we get here in Utah..no big deal. Anyway short story even shorter: effortless! I also took it out about a week after that storm on a sunny fast day and this board has incredible edge hold and you can go as fast as you want...scarrrry fast! Oh and its lighter than calista flockhart was on Ally McBeal.
Pros: Uber light, great response and stability, effortless float
Cons: no wide widths for my big feet

Just got back from the Burton demo. This was hands down my least favorite board in their line. It is a perfect example of a board that they put too much rocker in and didnt do anything to make up for the loss of stability. Hitting even medium sized jumps was super sketchy, the nose was always folding and I could tell it was on the verge of breaking. It had a really hard holding an edge on anything firmer and in choppy conditions it bounced you around so much.
The only place I would want this board is about 3ft in front of a rail...
Hey im looking to buy my first board as im off to canada to work and go snowboarding, ive only snowboarded for about 2 weeks and im wondering if this is a good board to get my skills good and then progress my skill level further, if anyone can help that would be awesome!

I ride the 154 and this board is sick. I first took it to snowbird the day after it snowed and it does super well in the powder. It gives enough float to keep you up. I then took it to Park City and it did super well on the groom and in the park. They smooth ride dampening pads really help out with flat landings and it gets rid of the chatter when going at high speeds on bumpy terrain. On the ice this board does well too. The side effects help maintain your edge on the ice. Overall i am super glad i bought this board and i reccomend it to anyone who loves to ride a sweet all around board.

I took this board out for a few runs last season at Snowbasin UT. I was a little apprehensive as every hybrid rocker I've taken out in the last couple of seasons haven't been the greatest decks as they were still unstable at high speeds and carved poorly.
Right off the bat riding down a groomer I noticed that the turn initiation on a very firm groomer was great. You do need to drop your front shoulder a little more then you may be accustom to and shift your weight forward to flatten out the nose of the board. But you do notice the new side effects tech on the nose grab for ease of initiation of your turn. You also feel it much better during the turn radius when you shift your weight to center to hold or start to exit the turn. No where near as unstable as other hybrid cambers.
I took this board on Icy Groomers, Wind blown Powder, Crud/Chop. It handled everything great and after a while the Flying-V shape wasn't even a factor and I was ripping around on it without any worries.
I will say that it is a bit softer then I prefer in a deck, Burton lists it at a 5 out of 10 and I would put it more like a 4 out of 10. But by no means did that fully take away from the overall experience.
I took out the 160 size, I typically ride anywhere from a 158-162 in my boards and enjoyed the size, I wouldn't go down or up personally size wise. I ride a size 10 boot and didn't have any issues what so ever with any kind of toe or heel drag.
If you're an All-Mountain do everything rider and you've been thinking about getting on a reverse camber deck but have been hesitant, the Sherlock is a great place to start easing your way into the current trend.
