Jones Flagship vs Never Summer Raptor
I'm currently riding a '04 Nitro Shogun 161 and am in desperate need for an upgrade. I'm an advanced rider that's been riding since the mid-90s, but had been out only a few times in the last 4 years (not by choice) and I'm looking to get back into it in a bad way.
I live in New England so I spend the majority of my time ripping trees and moguls, but take a couple trips out west every year where I'm riding steeps, chutes and pow whenever I can. Occasionally I'll hit the park; pretty much never ride switch. I'm 6' 190lb with size 10.5-11 boots.
So I've been browsing around for a badass freeride board and the Jones Flagship 161 and Never Summer Raptor 159 seem to fit the bill. Can anyone tell me the biggest differences between the two? Does anyone have any recommendations for other boards I should check out? Would really appreciate any sort of advice..
