Product Details

Softlite Test Tube Softboard

  • 7'0 - Beginners between 50-70kg / Advanced Surfers of all sizes
  • 8'0 - Beginners between 70-95kg / Advanced Surfers of all sizes
The Test Tube is a Deluxe Version of our 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.

In saying that though, the boards are very versatile, and even a great addition to the quiver for the more experienced surfers. They are a great way to increase your wave count on the smaller days, and the bigger boards are big enough for traditional longboard style surfing and allow moves such as noserideing etc. 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 our shorter, performance boards, but we've 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. Similar to regular fibreglass surfboards, it 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. The Reinforced mesh is infused into the Dura HD Slick. 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.

Apart from this, it has all the usual features found on Softlite boards including:
  • 100% Waterproof Moulded EPS Core 
  • 8lb PE Deck 
  • Double or Triple Bamboo Stringer re-inforced with Fibreglass Taping
  • Exoskeletal Strength Membrane
  • Leash Plug
  • Thuster Fin Set Up with Bones and Shanks Fin System

Great Summer Daily

The EPS works well in this model and is a great summer daily driver from Stacey.
Been riding this board for 3 months, in all sorts of conditions and it doesn't disappoint.

This board for me, sits in-between a dedicated small wave groveler (1-3ft) and a small wave performance board (up to 4ft+).
This board is great for those summer conditions, goes across flat sections well and has no trouble generating speed.

The shape is user friendly and quite a forgiving ride, would definitely buy another Stacey.

My Dims: 72kg, 5'10", riding a 5'11" 30.5L (easily floats me)

Stacey Roach 2

Awesome board, it flies, paddles well and holds good yet turns on a dime. Used futures Alpha T1 + stabiliser and Alpha F8 thrusters and felt like it was designed for either so super versatile. Phantom phlex is insane construction very solid yet lively at the same time and light. A++++

best reef boots

ive been wearing this model reef boot for nearly 20 years these are a upgrade in certain aspects but you cant get a better design very difficult for waves to rip off and also plenty of feel i use them even when not on reefs the extra traction is only a bonus dont get me wrong sea urchins can penetrate any bootie but if you want to look after your feet especially in the tropics these are my pick got to have the split toe on any boot your big toe does a lot have an injured big toe and you realise how much you control with it

Great Fins

On the recommendation from the Sandbah boys, bought these fins for my daily driver (Stacey Wave Slave), the smaller back fin is great and keeps the board lively/playful.
Used them in my HPSB (Channel Islands Two Happy) in solid 4ft and gave heaps of drive/confidence.

These are a real go to fin for me, highly recommended.

(Do yourself a favor and buy some grub screws to retain fins, incase like me, you accidently bump your fin under water from behind and lose it, otherwise FCS will gladly sell you a single).

So far so good 😉

Speeds well
