Question about directional, twin, and directional twin
In the past I have rode a directional and a twin. I understand the difference between these boards, is the way the holes are setup. I know twin's are in the middle and the board has an even distance from the binding holes to the tip. Directional is set back a little bit.
What exactly are these new like directional twins? Are the holes drilled like a twin(even distance to tips) but the board is designed more like a directional to be rode one way?
As well with my gnu park pickle(twin), I have been setting the bindings back a hole on powder days. I found this helped it ride better in powder. I've left it like that and tried riding directional on groomers now. I found that I enjoy being further back on the board more then in the middle. What is the difference with riding a twin setback, and a true directional? Is there much difference in the board design? For example I'm looking for a directional board to buy, and I've found a twin that I really like. Could I use the twin and set my stance back, or would it make more sense to buy a true directional!
