Lib Tech Jamie Lynn vs Capita TFA
Hey guys. I need input on what the recommended board for me is: a Lib Tech Jamie Lynn Phoenix or a Capita Totally Fk'n Awesome. Or maybe some other board like a Yes Big City or something else I haven't considered as much as the other two. (Never Summer SL, maybe?)
My level and stats:
5'4", 155 lbs, Size 8 boots
2 seasons of experience, I speed through greens, and link turns through steep, chewed up blue runs. I can't ride black runs yet without resorting to falling leaf.
PNW, night time riding, hard pack groomers, often times chewed up and icy due to rider volume. Slushy and sticky when it rains. Runs have varying grades from long flat spots to steeps. Always inbounds. Powder is gone before you know it's there.
Superb edge hold like I'm on tracks
Great stability at speeds > 25mph
Easy to turn at slow speeds when going down choppy steeps
Go through choppy snow and crud like a tank
Hold speed through powder, slush and flat spots
No park, just small kickers on the side of runs
No butters (Have a Rome Garage for that)
Thanks a lot guys! Some might say that those 2 or any aggressive all mountain boards maybe too advanced for my level, but I picked them because I know I'll grow into them. I'm also going back to grad school and will have no income for a new board next year.
