Nidecker is awful. Jones are light as shit, but not damp. The Flagship is a fucking tank. Stiffest thing in my old shop by a mile, but again, all that bamboo to make it light means you feel what you ride over. Jones means you need great dampening in your bindings and boots.
I don't know how J.J. rides those boards with Unions and Deeluxe. Maybe the highest end Deeluxes have great dampening, but they're the only boots in my old shop without liners. Not even like Salomon F series no liners, just like early 2000's no liners. My main complaint with Union was the lack of shock in the heels. All that and the gnarly shit he rides over at high speeds? Damn I feel bad for his knees and P.T.
That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
