Bertieman I got a 12'-13' burton custom flying v as my first board this season and have progressed from green runs to black runs with it. With that being said, I already desire a board that is faster and has better edge hold. I can rock the flying v, but I know based on reading a ton of reviews, any jones, etc should definitely be more quality. The flying v has worked great for me in powder, small-medium jumps, and groomers, but I already want a better groomer bomber. I have only ridden a few types of burton boards so I can't comment on anything else. Good luck!

Oldman I personally would not challenge Nivek in his opinion of how a board rides. He has already ridden more boards than most of us will in a lifetime.

What I will do is give you my opinion on your two choices. My daughter has a 2012 Burton Feelgood Flying V ( woman's version of the Custom Flying V ) as well as a 2013 Jones MT (men's board), the dark green one.

She finds the Jones is her go to board. She loves the stability of the mild Magna Traction as well as the RCR profile. We are Ice Coast riders and she finds the profile of her Burton just too loose for most of the conditions we ride in. Now, she will grab for the Burton on a powder day as we have set her bindings back on the Burton and it excels in those softer, powder conditions.

But for an all round ride, she reaches for the Jones. We are both huge fans of RCR as the best all round profile. We feel there is nothing else out there that can top if for the best "All Mountain" ride.

What changes were made from 12 to 13?

The 13 Custom had the standard glass and the RC profile was a little more pronounced. The 14 has a lighter, snappier, and livelier glass/carbon layout as well as a little more flattened RC profile. It really rides like a whole new board.

double I have a Jones Mountain Twin and really love the Camrock profile. I have not ridden the Custom Flying V but have ridden other Burton Flying V boards and strongly prefer the stability and the feel of the Jones. Before the Jones MT my regular board was a NS Heritage and in my opinion the Jones handles much, much better, especially when flat basing. The edge hold has been good as well but I ride mostly out west and have not had to deal with a lot of icy hard pack.

Have you ridden the 2014?

timmytimmytimmy If you live in NY and spent a lot of times on the East Coast groomers the Jones Twin will be a better choice, hands down. It holds an edge much better than the Custom Flying V. The Flying V can also hold and edge but you really have to work for it and its not as confidence inspiring, whereas with the Jones, get on an edge and you dont need to worry about it slipping out. I've ridden both and the Jones is my choice.

That said, for the east coast and powder searching just do the Jones. Camrock has more power than RC.
