Default YES Basic

Anyone have one or ridden one? I'm looking for a cheaper true twin with rocker in the tips and camber between the bindings to add to my quiver. Mainly looking for something with good pop for the jump line and fun at mach 10 on the groomers.

My buddy just got one. He didn't like straight up rocker cos he jumps a lot and found it sketchy on landings. Sounds like he digs the board so far.

I just bought the Great Beauties and it is awesome. I love camrock, gives you the stability of camber, with the float and butterability of rocker. I def think you'll enjoy it.

Though if your really into bombing groomers, you might want to look at the GB, it has Yes's fastest base and hauls ass down the mountain, first few runs on mine were a bit nerve racking since none of my prior boards had been nearly that fast.

You described the Technine Camrock. Get it. Or the original camrock. Signal Omni. They did it first and I still think they do it best. If not that, the T9 was super solid and great off jumps. BA reviewed it.

^^I was actually just looking at the Signam Omni. Is it stiffer than the YES Basic? I'm kinda thinking the Basic would be a bit too soft for my liking.

I'm basically just looking for a "whatever" board for the rare days I might spend lapping the park when there's no pow to be had. Yep, this is how I start thinking when there hasn't been freshies for weeks......

Omni. It just dumped in CO where I'll be in 24 hours. I'll be riding a 153 Omni for it. And if I wanted to, I could take that same deck I just used for new snow to the park and jib the hell out of it. Then jump it.
