Default Rossignol Jones - Any good?

I'm a freeride guy myself and i read often on here about the Titan and Legacy, Hertitage etc from NS but i've yet to hear anyone talk about the Jeremy Jones as a freeride board. Does anyone have any experience with it? Good things? Bad things? etc I'd like to know as i'm lining up a board for next season and considering the Jones as an option.

In case there is confusion i'm talking about the Jeremy Jones who free rides and is sponsored by Rossi not the Burton one.

Jeremy Jones rides it. That is all.

It's made for straight bombing cliffs and 70 degree slopes at Mach5.

The longer you go, the bigger the turning radius.

I haven't ridden that board, but I have ridden a Rossignol and have to say that they are very good freeride boards. They don't really do to well in the park, but anywhere else they are amazing.

I own one of his first year models (a 162) and really like it. Very damp and stable, but it did not have much pop. It has a pretty large SCR (9m), so if you like to haul ass and link big sweeping turns, then you might like it. I demoed this years model (the 162) and liked it WAY better than my old one. Again, long SCR, but I could maneuver the board a bit more easily. It was also lighter and had a ton more snap to it, and was still very damp and stable. I think they put a different core into the board for this year. It is a very stiff board, so do not expect it to turn easily if you are a light dude. Don't even bother taking it into the park, but, it was entertaining to do so none the less.

I hope this helps.
