Wednesday I started on a Coiler 182, the version with more taper.
Very smooth (I know I keep saying "smooth" but coming from an older glass board that's really the first thing that jumps out), but not as lively as some of the Doneks had been, and it had a tendency to just track out at the end of the turn. This was good information, because one of the things Sean and I had talked about with respect to the Proteus 180 was how to give it a little more release at the finish, and he'd suggested that increased taper might work better than decreased sidecut. Not so successful for me with the Coiler. Later in the day I was able to snag a similar Coiler with less taper, and that felt much more comfortable, in fact it was one of my favorites altogether.
