I got one in XTR 7.C Construction. Works super good in most conditions. This board complements my groveler as a two board quiver. I like to use a fin combo of AM fronts with a NVS Peregrine center fin. I hope Rusty does not discontinue this board as I feel it is extremely underrated.
The rooster is a super fun board when the waves are a bit less steep. Mows right through flat spots and is snappy in the pocket. Keeps the flow going and gains speed when you need it. Paddles well and is loose and fun.
My Rooster is a custom 5' 8" at 31L Torsion Spring! I highly recommend this board and build! I've used it every day for the last three months and it works in everything. It skates across flat sections and holds when there is power. The Torsion Spring has a fantastic feel! It's lively, responsive and predictable. The outline of the rooster is very sexy and the rails are a dream come true! When you grab the rail to turn for a wave, it feels strong and instills confidence. On top of all this, it paddles amazingly and the entry rocker lets you in early. I will definitely order another Torsion Spring for my next board. There is a lot of construction technology to choose from theses days, but I feel like Rusty nailed the flex and durability while maintaining a crafted feel. Thanks again Team Rusty
Surfing for 30 years and this was my first Rusty. I don't typically buy boards off the rack, but saw this thing in a local shop and it felt good under the arm. Love this board as a daily driver; works in small to medium size waves and as well as flatter-face waves to punchier beachbreak (San Clemente).
Noticed the sweet promotion/sale you guys were running on the rooster. Ordered the board 1 week before I was leaving the country for good. Placed call the next day and mentioned that I would really appreciate board being shipped asap. 3 days later my rooster arrived in Nor-Cal in perfect condition. Brand new board for a steal of price. So stoked. Surfed it everyday in Nicaragua since. Great all around shape. Thank you very much RUSTY crew.
