Default New Board - Jones Flashship or Carbon?

Hey all -

I had a binding snap on my Burton Custom X of 7 years. As a result, I've decided it's a good time to get a new setup.

I believe I've decided on a Flagship with Flow NX2-RS bindings. So my question is... is the Carbon Flagship worth the additional $300? I'll be riding primarily in NY / VT with a trip out west each year.

- Robb

Depends on your point of view.

Go take a non-carbon and a carbon and look at their shape. Maybe this fixed this from last year. But I know my carbon has a lot more camber than the wood version.

If that is worth 300 dollars to you then go for it. Otherwise save the money.

I have the carbon and I have no regrets.

It's only worth it, if that's what you really want. On the east coast you won't notice any performance difference, other than increased harshness on the carbon

Thanks for the feedback. Has anyone tried both the Flow NX2-AT and NX2-RS? Curious if the supposedly added stiffness of the RS is a must for this board...
