What to go with my NOW IPO
I just got a pair of new 14 NOW IPO's for $76. Got lucky on amazon I happened to see them and they were trying to get rid of the last few pairs of my size. Excited about that because I have really wanted to try some NOW since get released.
After realizing I don't like the feel of CRC profile with my SL I'm looking to replace it. I like and want a twin that's either flat or camber with rocker at the tips and more of a medium flex (little stiffer than my kink and propaganda). Was also wanting to not buy one of the major board brands. Right now I'm thinking I want the YES Basic 156. It's a good price and sounds to be about what I want and is definitely the front runner in this. I also looked some at the Academy Rhythm 155 tho I'm not sure where it's flex would be, my propaganda they say is a 6 compared to it being a 8.5 and the propaganda is a bit softer than my kink which ride has at I think a 5. Also was looking at the DC tone 156. The YeS with camber I would assume to be a little more aggressive than the Academy and DC that are flat in the middle.
Personal: I'm about 5'10" 190lbs. Mostly like playing around while riding pressing or whatnot and ride switch a lot. I still ride some park, tho it's getting to be less the older I get and I don't hit big features. Biggest jump I'll hit is only around a 30 footer and not often. Do a lot of the boxes and taps and stuff like that around the park. I want the board to be somewhat flexible and playful yet still be able to handle speed and some powder on the rare occasions I see fresh snow or when I go places that get more snow on trips.
