The nose floats on flat, I can't manage to get stuck with that board, and when all is done and slashed the bigger flexy nose smashes the slashed snow like an icebreaker. you don't even notice it even with tired legs.
I don't know why they placed the inserts where they did..ask Jeremy? I'm pretty sure he knows what he's doing..All I know is that rides like a dream.
Absolutely love the HC. Got it used from this forum... best deal ever.

|walove||Etm you should do a birdman review after a couple of days on it. Its a skatebanana with a extra foot of nose. The nose doesn't touch the snow so it should ride groomers like a fun freestyle board. Switch too. I am very interested. I have a 165 snowmullet which is the best board I've every rode. With rocker between the feet it pivots from the middle in pow making it more nimble than shorter cambered boards. Switch pow butters for days. Then cranks turns and pops ollies on the firm. Its funny that tapered boards get a bad for groomer rap, where I think they rip groomers. I'm sure that the hover keeps the nose out of the snow, but in 3D snow that tail helps out when you lean back coming out of the turn, a longer pow board gives a more surfy feel, short board is more slashy.|

|RichnNorcal||FWIW, I've been riding a HC for 2 year now & loving it! Since, pretty much thats I all ride now. I'm a few years shy of 50. I'm 5'7" 150lbs, I've ridden pow boards that are 164cm long, they're great in pow but suck in the trees. That is where the HC kills it! I have the 156 and it can float like styrafoam in 3-4ft of pow and turn on a dime in trees. I ordered mine from Salty Peaks board shop in Utah, they're an awesome small shop with a great selection of pow boards. Give'em a call, they have an 800 toll free number, very knowlegeable and friendly!|

|ETM||One guy bought a new board and the inserts didnt have any thread in them|

|TorpedoVegas||Yeah the metal piece on the tail basically came off mine, but they gave me a brand new board so that was alright. The new board seems to be holding together so far. I heard a lot of stories about inserts in the wrong place last year, and other manufacturing issues. This year I haven't heard much other than my own warranty story, and it wouldn't stop me from buying another Jones board.|

|Supra||you can't say that until the season is over and there were less warranty claims. and at this point there have already been lots of issues with 2013 stuff. It's mostly the splits though. but didn't the tail fall off yours or torpedo's?|

|Supra||well, Jones' quality can be downright horrible so I have no doubt you actually saw those misplaced inserts|
