Default Yes Greats or Never Summer Ripsaw

Both look like great boards for Aggressive All mountain charging... finding it hard to choose between them...

any idea which one is stiffer? better in powder? all round more versatile?

Any ideas/help most welcome....

Ps also considering Capita DOA but gather this is less aggressive?

What profile is the board you ride now? The YES is a r/c/r and the NS is c/r/c profile, they are both good boards, its just a preference of what you like to ride. Im a camrock whore so I would go with the YES.

Currently on an 17y old camber board ( that has flattened out a bit).... Did demo a crc Smokin awesomemetrical last season.. & it felt loose & hard to get an edge on... Took a while to get used to it....

From what I've read, I would think the ripsaw is stiffer than the Greats. I have a Great Beauties from 3 years back that I absolutely love, it's superb board for all mountain the Yes camrock profile is money.

Not that NS is bad either...I also have an SL...good board but I prefer the Yes.

Basically, camrock charges harder than RC. Greats no question.

Pretty much this. I prefer r/c/r, especially for hard charging. Not gonna knock c/r/c as it's fun, but I feel like that profile works better with softer boards. It's just a more natural fit IMO. It's just weird to me to have a stiffer board with the natural flex point being between the bindings. I do wanna try the Ripsaw at some point though, just to try out that profile with more aggressive camber in the tips.

Dude stop reading my mind but good luck getting the NS boys to agree

I have nothing against NS. They build a great board. Hell, I have an Evo. I just like other camber profiles in stiffer boards.
