Is the airobic geared towards butter and jibs and the evil twin for all around park?
The Airobic uses Jib TBT, The ET uses Twin TBT. The Airobic is softer, Bi-ax, Extruded. The ET is stiffer, Tri-ax, Sintered....and the dimensions are different as well...width, sidecut, effective, etc. They are very diferent boards.

Both are Sinetered, Tri-ax, and Twin TBT.

The new ET is slightly softer, has the new tip and tail shape and has the new extended TBT to the tips.

If they are very different boards, which one would you recommend for jibbing the whole mountain? I have a 2008 Nitro Swindle right now, and it is not super soft (for jib board standards) but I use it to play around the entire mountain and take off <50 foot jumps (but mostly 20-30 footers). I really, really want a bataleon and am looking at 2011 fun kink or evil twin (on sale now). I weigh 155 pounds and have my swindle in a 152 now. What size and which of these decks should I get? Or should I wait and pay a little more for 2012?

What is your foot size? Is this board going to replace your Swindle? You mentioned that you are looking for an all mountain Jib board but will this be hitting the 20-50 footers as well?

I'm a size eight in a ThirtyTwo boot. Its going to replace the swindle for all purpose park and jibbing everything on the way to the park and down to the lift. The flex I'm looking for is similar to the swindle - medium park flex, definitely on the stiffer side of jibbing because I also like to point it and haul ass once in a while.

The ET 151 will be ideal. Happy riding!

Shipping in the USA is always free. The only Wiredsport charge will be $15.00 to Canada for the shipping. Duty will apply but will depend on your location. We cannot quote on destination specific duty charges as these are not Wiredsport charges.
