Hi Rich,

I narrowed down my choices to either the Element Rx or the Coda. Their inserts are at different places, otherwise the boards are very similar. But this is not the question here.

The dilema I have is that I don’t know how each top sheet would affect the riding properties of the boards. The Element has Poplar and the Coda is covered with Bamboo. Can you tell me what is the difference between the two types of wood? Or who else can I ask? The ride will be affected somehow by the wood. But how? Thank you. Jarka

In my experience rich a bamboo board will provide a bit more “pop” while the poplar will better absorb hits and dips, bamboo is flexy but strong making it pop really well off hits, jibs, etc. Poplar will provide plenty of lift and pop, but a little less so, it will however help absorb some of the hit, so really they are going to be similar in most aspects but that is the major difference between the two, I ride a element RX and love it, my friend rides a Coda and loves it. I dont think you will be upset either way.
