Default Blacklist on big jumps?

Per this forums recommendation I bought an Arbor Blacklist 160 (I'm 6'2" 200lbs) for this season and have been absolutely loving it so far. I've never had so much fun hitting rails and jumps at my local hills. Thing is I ride in the midwest and the jumps I find around here are typically medium sized at best and I haven't been able to test out my new new board on any large jumps. I'll be going out to colorado in a few weeks and plan on hitting the larger features out there but I'm nervous about how the Blacklist will hold up and those bigger features. My other board is a traditional camber stepchild which might be a better choice for the trip if I want to survive the ridiculous parks out there. Has anyone been using a blacklist on large features like that? How have you felt it has held up compared to other boards?

Define "big".

"Big" here in CO is fucking HUGE.

Not just the "pros", but really fucking good riders, that's for damn sure.

I suppose I should've qualified the original post. I'm talking big compared to the 30 foot maximum I find around here. I have no intentions of hitting the massive features you guys are referring to.

In that case the Blacklist will be fine. Heck, I think it'd be just fine on really big jumps too, although I haven't personally taken it off a 75+ foot jump.

Blacklist will easily handle 30-50 foot jumps if that's what you're talking about.

How big are you wanting to hit? That would be the question. BA would be the guy to ask. He's one of the people who love that board. I imagine that if you've got the skill to hit it, the board will do the job.
