Jones Aviator vs. Lib Tech Travis Rice Pro
hey everyone, I'm about to ordering a new board and testing is almost impossible here in Germany. Maybe you could help me out a little.
I'm a snowboard instructor and go splitboarding in my spare time. Had a Lib Tech Darker Series (and a Burton Custom X) for work and charging the groomers and I have my 2nd Jones Solution as a split by now and a Hovercraft for the deeper days.
My Lib Tech was stolen, so I need a new board for work. Since I've had only positive experiences with these brands, I have narrowed down my search to the following two boards, since they are still available in my size and pretty cheap at the moment:
- Lib Tech Travis Rice Pro
- Jones Aviator
my main criteria are: edge hold (locked-in feeling), stability (at higher speeds and landing bigger jumps), "euro-carving" ability, float in powder
I know, testing the board myself is always better, but there is no rental shop that has them and I need a new board for work next week.
hope you guys could help me out! thanks in advance!!!
