Jones Flagship?

How does this board compare to some of the Lib Techs? I like how it is on the stiffer side.

Might purchase this Jones over the Lib Jamie Lynn... Like the Bataleon Omni 158 as well, but I am up in the air, and the Omni is a mid-flex rated board. Rather have less flex more response..

rocker profile is way different, much more traditional and almost flat.

sweet board BTW.

I thought it is responsive on edge like a camber??

Guessing the Gnu Billy Goat '14 would be a better comparison with the new C3 Camber & med-magnetraction...

Wish the Omni was stiffer for higher speeds nonetheless, or I'd purchase it now.

I ride a lot more in the past 6 or 7 years ago like I use to when I was a teen, and sure as heck need a better board than my ol' Timeless.

Appreciate any help on any of the boards mentioned...

Flagship fan

Was insecure of buying the Flagship too. But got it and I love it. Its very stable at high speeds, heaven in pow, great edgehold on icy slopes and its very fast edge to edge.

/\ ditto to what he said,

i purchased one last summer (a 168W) and started riding it this season with the intent it would be my "out west" or "big mountain" board, and it is. Used it on our trip to Kicking Horse last month and it was incredible, delivered in all areas of use. Coming back to Ontario hills i thought i wouldn't use it and go back to my cambered burton board, but the Jones board out performs even on groomers, it's wicked fast, sharp, agile, etc. etc. , hard to use anything else now.

With the rest I agree. Didn't think of riding my camber Liberty Carbon for one second since the first ride with the Flagship.

Read some reviews elsewhere, and people seems to agree on the FlagShip - they say that it's an amazing big-mountain board, even though many also say it's a little flat(hardly any camber, but still responsive/stable at high speeds) with rocker at the tips. That's a little confusing to me, but everyone says this board is a high speed train.

I'm a fan of camber, and I thought this board did have camber foot to foot???

Wonder if I should just go and make the purchase.. think this board is better suited for me than the Bataleon Omni, just wish I could be 100% sure it has camber as Jones Co states.

Give me a few minutes and i'll post a picture for you. I actually have mine here as we were originally going to Crystal this weekend. Plans fell through so Tahoe it is.

I am a Vermonter living in California showing the locals how to keep it real!
