What ever that means it really means that the Kink is pretty stable between Jibs and is fun to play with.

So for some reason their borders that tested it thought it was twin-like directional but yeah, on the sportchek description it says it is a centered true twin.

Even so its still meant as a jib board and the Raygun will be better all mountain/on bigger jumps. And is over 100 dollars cheaper.
Lupin,
Thanks for your help. I think I've definitely been swayed into getting the K2 instead of the Ride now.
But now I don't know if I want the Anagram or the Raygun lol.

Here's some more info on my riding:
The hills I go on around where I'm at aren't big at all so I'm mostly in the Park anyway. I only go to big mountains about once a year for a couple days and then when I'm riding those is the only time I'm usually on the mountain instead of the park. I also really wanna learn switch this year as noted before.

Personally, I don't really like the Rayguns graphics that much and the fact that it is not totally centered kinda deters me as well.
If I don't really plan on going "warp speed" down a mountain; quick but not blisteringly fast, would you say that the Anagram would still be good?
That would definitely help my decision?

Thanks
