Kastle layups are classic: laminate construction, wood cores, metal top and bottom. The one difference is rubber—a full sheet beneath the topsheet, plus strips over the edges. The feel is distinctive—smooth and quiet—and particularly well-suited to comfortable cruising. Meanwhile, the tip cutaway reduces weight and further dampens vibrations. Damp is good, as long as it’s not lifeless, and the 78 puts up good scores for rebound energy. “Powerful, silky and dynamic,” said Hogen.
