Default Rossignol Jibsaw All Mtn

I'm looking to replace my ride antic, because flat snowboards drive me insane. I found a cheap jibsaw and while im sure it has good edge hold and id good in the park, I wanted to know if anyone could speak to its all mountain capabilities. How does it hold up in steeps?

I've been trying to find that board actually. Sportchek carries Rossi but the 2 that I went to didn't have any. They had pretty much every other one.

Where did ya find it & how much?

Actually the Jibsaw runs into the same issue as the old K2 Jibpan. Not jib boards. In fact they're both stiffer park/all mountain decks. The Jibsaw is better outside the park than doing jibs. Good on jumps though.

I rarely go in the park, I live in British Columbia, drop big cliffs & do huge airs.

As long as it's not on the short side for you, you will love it.

Unless... You live in Vancouver, then I would have to no, it's purely a park shredder & suck anywhere else.
Where did you say you found that?

Jibsaw is not strictly a park board

I know, it was kind of a joke.

Grab it up, I'm pretty sure there's nothin' on the east coast that can stymie this board.

This thing would be a perfect ice coast killer, it did all fun jibber shit my Burton Hero did.
But the trade off was the Hero sucked ass @ speeds & didn't hold an edge worth shit.
The Jibsaw, on the other hand was a bomber, didn't matter what it was going through, felt super stable haulin' ass.
It sliced & diced the chop & carved through the ice like a Ginsu, with its MTX.

Bought a Jibsaw 155 last year, didn't get to ride too much, but put a few days on it. Including a couple of days at Marmot Basin and 3 days at Revelstoke. Mixed conditions all over with a little bit (10-15cm) of fresh every day at Revy, and it handled everything like a champ. I wouldn't say it's overly stiff though, but it shouldn't hold you back. Should be interesting to see how it does on the east coast ice this year since I didn't ride a single day here at home with it.
