That being said, I love some of the new stuff coming out of Yes.
I have picked up both

What should I be looking for as an obvious? I know there were some complaints over the top sheet of the 2012 Jones, but never hear of any other issues unless im missing something...

Other issues included poor finishing, crap inserts, delams, lack of proper camber profiles.

I have a 2012, and it is very pooly finished, but I love the ride, it is also totally flat, no camber at all. The new ones are where the old ones should have been.

My ultralight arrived today. This is easily the coolest looking snowboard I have seen. Hopefully it rides just a good as it looks. Time will tell.

I read somewhere some of the Jones/Yes boards with quality issues were made at Nidecker's Tunisia factory which I think was then shut down. The better boards were made in Switzerland. I have a 2011/12 Yes Great Beauties that is fine, although it has a spelling mistake on the sidewall - says "great beautys"!! Probably a Tunisian board...
