Hi JT,

This will depend a bit on the model that you are considering. Both profiles are much more catch free (landings and otherwise) than traditional camber. You will find options that will be incredible for you in both styles.

Hello Wiredsport,

There are only 2 models left on my shortlist:
- Lib Tech Jamie Lynn
- Jones Mountain Twin

Which Jamie Lynn were you considering? Phoenix or Classic?

the C2-BTX one, so with the rocker between the bindings and camber below the bindings.

and the Jones Mountain Twin is the opposite: rocker after the bindings and camber between the bindings.

Hi Jean,

The C2 Jamie Lynn is a great board for you. the Jones spec shows camber limited to inside the inserts. If correct, it can not do much there. Most boards that show that design actually have the camber extending well outside of the inserts. I am unsure if that is the case with the Jones. If it is you may want to revisit that one. Possibly another user who has that deck will be able to psot up some pics of its profile.

the camber on the Jones stops now AFTER the inserts on the 2013 model (on the 2012 model it stopped just at the binding).

That would make sense as the other design offers no advantage but their website still shows this info:



Mountain Twin

The Jamie Lynn will be exceptional for what you are looking to do.

Hi guys. I do mostly freeriding. I want to go fast with good control on my turns. I'm 5'7 140 lbs . My regular shoe size is 9.5 . Which profile board would be best for my requirements? And if you could recommend specific models, that would be great. Thanks in advance.
