Default Looking for my Twin!

Hey all..

Sorry for another pick me a board thread.Im sure they are played out by now,and for that I apologize.Im going to be buying a new board for this season,and would love some opinions on what I should be looking at.I ride between 40-60 times a season,mostly on the Ice Coast,but do make one trip a year.I like park laps,and have always gravitated to park type boards,but want to mix it up this season with more of a quiver killer.Something twin or twin like,Cambered or Camber hybrid,that I can really get after it on the steeps without the Vibration and sketchiness of a softer board..but can still have some fun with kickers/jibbing.I have done some homework on this,but wanted to get some opinions.

5'9" 155 lbs

9.5 boot

Requirements:

Damp
Twin/twin like
Park friendly
Sintered base
Camber or camber like profile





Thanks in advanced

Based on those requirements, it sounds like a Rome Agent might be a good option to look into. I love mine from a few years ago and will probably be getting another by the end of this year.

Some damp NS boards that fit what you are looking for are the Proto, SL (last season made was 13-14 except for the split board variant), snowtrooper or the stiffer Ripsaw.

The Rome artifact might be worth looking into but not sure how damp this years model is.

I'd go Mod Rocker specifically, then yeah that. Also Flow Whiteout, Burton Twin FV or Camber, Arbor Coda, Yes Greats, Slash Happy Place, Salomon Assassin, or a K2 Happy Hour.

Why the Mod Rocker,Nivek??

I wanted camber for the control..however what the company calls the profile doesn't matter to me as much as control. I never rode a rocker from Rome. Care to share your thoughts on the rocker combo?


Thanks!

Well the Mod Rocker is flat to rocker. So you still get that stable platform between your feet. The board still cgarges well but is way more forgiving and jibbabble than the camber version. Which is pretty pegged as a strong riders slopestyle deck.

Also worth looking at the Rossignol Jibsaw.

Playful, poppy board. Good for the whole mountain. True twin with camber between feet and rocker at tips, mid stiff flex, mellow magnetraction. Can get good deals on last years model.

I demoed one a couple of years back and loved it. Just got myself one for the upcoming season.

I got 2 Yes Greats: a 56 and 58. The 58 is one of my all time favorite boards to ride. Took a little bit to get used to the twin centered stance stuff but man its nice.....love these asym twins with camrock. Got a big Yes PYL too with Camrock: its a rocket.
