Jones Mountain Twin alternative.
I just passed a week on the snow, and i'm completely hooked. I rented that week and now, I want to invest in some good gear that will last. I'm looking into an all mountain board, but more on the freeride side.
I'm already 99% sure about the bindings : Cartel's.
For the board, I love the jones Twin Mountain, and the review about the 2013 are all excellent. It looks like this board is exactly what I need. The only problem is that it is already quite hard to find in Europe, especially in my size ( 157). All my friends told me to wait until march or even this summer, as they will sell the stock to make way for the 2014's gear. But with the board already sold out nearly everywhere, I doubt there will be any boards left.
So I'm looking into alternative. The Nitro team series Gullwing appears to be a good all around board, but on one site, they say in their reviews that the board doesn't have anything special, and is just good all around. They also say that the board isn't really good at high speed.
What other boards should I look into ? I need a board that is good all around, I just don't think I'm much into jibbing.
Excuse my english, I'm pretty sure you already guessed that it isn't my first language.
