Question Dom vs blunt primo

Hi

so the season's starting soon and i need a good board to last me for another few years.

ive got a small selection of last season boards (08) and ive narrowed it down to
burton blunt primo and dominant... not really sure about the dominant since it was
smth "special" the guy in the store pulled out from somewhere.

what im looking for is a board for a tiny resort (1,2km) in other words, mostly for park... i do a lot of jumping... mostly 720's but hoping to improve. Im not that much into rails and boxes (prefer my bones in on piece) but i still ride them every now and then (and planning to learn some more). i like my boards stiff and fast but not too stiff for flipping jumps, manuals, etc from all kinds of corners and bumps on the way down.

anyone's got some experience on these models?

It's unlikely that you will find a lot of Burton board users on this forum...

I'm curious why your stuck with those 2 boards? Are you set on buying from a local shop or something? Nothing wrong with that if so..

damn it so what are you guys riding?

since i live in europe, ordering large things online is rather expensive (and the prices are similar all around) so buying from a local shop is way easyer. (cant order from the states since il end up with a 60% import tax in the end + posting)

the thing is that the cheapest boards the stores will have are around here start from $468
but the last season is sold off cheaper ( i can get a $600 board with $366 )
and used board aint an option since ive seen what an why ppl sell here... it aint pretty ;/

ofc they have a bit more options for my price range.

Burton:
Blunt Primo
Blunt
Clash
Bullet


Forum:
Stomper
Manual

SANTA CRUZ:
Duo Glx
Simmen
Jon Kooley TT
Allstar laud+side


but from my quick research, primo seemed the most fit... and dominant i discovered in the store.

only ones from there ive even seen are battalion and forum... well, almost everyone around seems to be a forum fanboy... had one as my last board... wasnt too impressed (although it was rather decent) and some guys have imported a few battalions.

the rest seems to be usa specific or just very rare.

but the issue with this like i said before is the $$ I can only go up to $400... only decent boards (in my country) for that are a very limited choice of leftover stock in a very few stores (only 1 that i am aware of.. their forum stuff is sold out)

Actually the Kooley TT was a good board. Its a structurn base which is way fast. Its one of the last good boards SC made before their team bailed.

Could always find a 2009 board right now for cheap...

Pretty sure most of those boards are shipped and have distro worldwide?


Here is the link to the Bataleon wordwide distro
SHOPS / DEALERS | BATALEON SNOWBOARDS | Triple Base Tech, the best thing to happen to snowboards since edges.

Never Summer international
{ International Dealers } Never Summer Industries

Capita international distro
Dealer Locator | CAPiTA Super Corporation


But if you don't want to google search yourself then that's the most I can help you.... I wouldn't buy another Burton board or a GNU/Lib Tech right now

only capita had an online distributer that could reach here (with 1 board in stock) it also had a lot of other brands but even the cheapest stuff was on the boarder line with my budget... local discount is the best you can get...
the joy of living in estonia... population of 1,3 million ftw.

i think its pointless listing other brands... i probably wont go as far as ordering... is just too expensive :/

i am getting a bit interested in the Jon Kooley TT though. it looks like a decent board and its way cheaper then the others... im just worried if its not too soft... i hate those rubber boards. does anywone have any experience?

My friend had it in a 151. He weighs 160lbs/72.5kg and he was hitting 60footers on it till he misread a jump, cased, and blew out his knee. Then later that season he was hitting 40 footers. So with a freshly healed blown knee, he was hitting 40 footers on a board more sized for jibs. It shouldn't be too soft for you. You'll like heelside turns with it by the way
