I don't jib, but I have demoed both of those boards. Flow makes some quality boards and at this price point, I think the Verve is the better choice. I tend to dislike Burton boards that are under the $400 mark. The Ration is sick though.

The Blunt does have more pop from what I recall though. The rocker profile on both boards is good. The Flow being a little more mellow. Quality-wise, I'd say Verve all the way.

What year Verve and Blunt? I would rank them like this: 2011 Verve over 2011 Blunt, 2010 Blunt over 2010 Verve, and a close decision between all of the older (read camber) versions. Burton is Burton but Flow's boards will surprise you.

Good call on this.

I was in fact speaking of the 2011 models in my post 51bombed.
