Affordable = not Never Summer or Libtech. I came to the conclusing that the boards I was lusting for are out of my league, probably both in terms of skill level as in terms of $$$.
Here's what I came up with so far, all boards that are available in a local-ish webshop:
: Haven't found too many reviews or tests yet.
Nitro Subzero Hotwing
: Came across a couple really negative reviews of Nitro's 'gulwing' profile.
Forum Youngblood Doubledog
: Seems to be more park oriented, not sure if's perfect for hardpack/pow.
Smokin Superpark CTX
: Dito. Maybe dispite the name it'll hold it's own all across the mountain?
Forum Destroyer Doubledog
: Don't see much difference with the youngblood
: It's supposed to be an allmountain freestyle board, but it only gets a 5 and a 6 on Apo's own carving and powder scale.
Experiences and opinionins would be very much appreciated, as well as other suggestions.
I'm mainly after an all mountain freestyle board, not just a park/jib stick. Preferably a true twin, but that's not a must. Light weight, flexible, but still something I can depend on in pow and mainly hardpack and icy groomers, where I'll spend most of my time. Basicaly something like the NS SL or Libtech TRS, only a lot less pricey
Thanks a lot, and srry about the semi cross post
