markee It's marketed for park, but it's not a jibber's delight that won't work outside the park. It's quite a bit stiffer than the WWW; stiff enough to ride all-mountain.

jimmerjammermrk If you weigh 160 I'd go with something between 150 and 155.

The jibpan is probably not the ideal board for you, as it's also more of a pure park board.

markee Formulas are solid. I ride Sweaters on my 07/08 Jibpan (it's the same binding with gel in the ankle strap that doesnt really make a difference...). It's not a pure park binding by any means, but its got enough flex on the inner side of the bindings (assymetrical highback) to lock in butters and enough forgiveness to land sketch spins.

If you want a more park-oriented ride, get Rome 390s.

HouseMuzik Okay so not only you people are telling me the jibpan looks like the thing to do if i liked the WWW.. but my friends too. Now the question is board size.. should I go with a 150.. or 153? I'm 160lbs.. the burton ltr board i ride is a 155. Oh and I will give the link AFTER i buy mine haha

and binding advice?? I'm thinking the K2 formulas.. they were on the WWW i rode and they were nice.

DC5R Don't do it!! Don't! Just PM me where you can pick it up for $300 so I can remove this temptation from you

Just kidding!! If you've found a new Jibpan for $300, snap it up!

HouseMuzik powder? in Pennsylvania?? hehe. those tips are kinda weird yeah.. but i can ride a 150 and it will have the same amount of board on the snow as a typical 155.. which is what i ride anyway.. plus the board is lighter if I'm understanding the whole concept behind it.

Looks like a board i could definitely have for a couple of years. Of course, next year when i'm even more serious i can just pick up another board for pow

Yeah 09... its an early clearance.. and its new (not demoed/blem etc), think I'm gonna do it.. I am assembling the funds now.

This year's model? If I saw it for 300 I'd be all over it. But be wary of the 09 Jibpan's jib tips. Makes it kinda suck in the powpow so it's not 'truly' all-mountain.

Vlaze I think the angry snowboarder website did a review on the jibpan, I could be wrong.
