The surfboard Softlite Test Tube is a Deluxe Version of the top-selling Softlite Chop Stick series. It uses the same mould as the Chop Stick (Mini Mal Template), so is essentially quite similar, just with a couple of extra features squeezed in.

For the beginner riders, these boards paddle fast and are extremely stable making them ideal for learning on. They are also a great addition to the quiver for the more experienced surfers and a great way to increase your wave count on the smaller days. If finless is your thing, the Test Tube is definitely the board of choice amongst our team riders, in particularly due to the Rolled Parabolic Rails feature.

Compared to the Chop Stick model, the Test Tube has the following additional features:

ROLLED PARABOLIC PE RAILS : This was originally designed for shorter, performance boards, but Softlite found it to make the bigger boards a bit more user friendly to ride also. Each board contains 4 crosslink rails. These rails are then hand shaped, allowing softer rails near the nose tapering down to a sharp, harder edged rail at the tail. This allows if to be forgiving and not catch rails up front, but gives it a bit more bite making it easier to turn off the tail. Similarly, to a stringer it also provides extra stiffness in the board, and generally helps to increase the durability of the board.

MESH INFUSED SLICKS : This is technology derived from bodyboarding, who lead the way in using EPS / HDPE Slick combinations. This provides a frame of strength, which not only improves stiffness but also recoil, so making it easier to pump from rail to rail with the right amount of tension.

Moulded Core Construction:

This ensures that every board comes out identical with no imperfections. It also creates a harder shell of EPS foam on the outside making Softlite boards stiffer and more durable than competitors who use similar cores. The Bones and Shanks Fin System makes easy to install and remove fins. Compatible with other fin two tab systems, allowing you to change your fins to suit conditions or alter board performance. Also allows for no screws on deck, which not only looks good, but you don’t need to worry about kicking your toes on screws!

The Bamboo Stringer System is re-enforced with fibreglass sheeting and epoxy resin to give the perfect amount of flex. This strengthens and waterproofs the stringer. Since the introduction of this technology, we have had very few boards snap.
