also got the 09 jam and love it. great all mountain board, a bit a on the stiff side. i got my jam at 200$ at the beginning of the season in almost new condition. imo it was a great deal, esp as i love the graphics and its hard to find these days in that kind of condition. ill say its a great board, but whether ur willing to spend the money is up to u. if i were u, i prob would.
