Normally, we wouldn’t assume that just because we greatly admire one model, that we’ll ipso facto feel the same about a sibling in the same model family. But we’ll make that leap of faith here for four reasons. One, the Thunderbird R15 WB - which we have skied - uses an identical construction, with just the slightest tweak to its baseline. Two, the whole point of the TrueBlend core both models employ is to create a consistent flex that’s in perfect harmony with the baseline and sidecut. Three, both models carry the identical $1080 MSRP; if they were significantly different, it would show up in the price. And four, the T-Bird R15 WB isn’t just good, it’s great. The probability that its skinnier incarnation is excellent is excellent.
