pops I have the 07-08 jibpan, and It rides like an all-mountain board, but some reps say it is for the park. Any guess?

pops I have the 07-08 jibpan and it is a little stifer than this years 09 modle, and it is more of an all-mountain board.

Mr. Right I ended up getting an artifact for 200 but still plan on getting a jibpan. The artifact isn't the unmanagable beast everyone makes it out to be. There are a few things that make it harder to ride but I don't dread it like people made me think I would.

BurtonAvenger This seasons Jibpan has jib tips in it and a slight tweak to the flex pattern. The one you're looking at has the regular tips.

I won't be hitting a ton of rails but want to work on my spins and my switch riding this year.

The Jibpan is basically the www on steroids. Its got carbon stringers throughout giving it a lot of pop. Its got a sh!t ton of effective edge since its got that whole jib inspired thing k2 does (shorter nose and tail with more effective edge). with more effective edge, you get to ride a shorter board with the control of a longer board, it feels awesome. AND, the jibpan is tapered at the nose and tail making it easier to spin. and my buddy delamed his graft last year.
is this review base on this year's model? i'm thinking about getting the k2 Jibpan 07/08. i don't think it has the same tech as the 09. can someone tell me if this is true...i need a freaking board..

BurtonAvenger Its stiffer in the tips and tail with a slight bit more play between the feet. Has better pop and dampening.

Mr. Right I wish I worked around a warehouse full of snowboards I could probably live with being fired if I got a free jibpan out of it
