I would think this late with most resorts closed, 30-40% off retail would be my minimum starting point in shopping for a new decck. Of course selection can be severely limited, but it's certainly worth checking out!
Good luck on your deal hunting.
Yeah, ignore me! Just did a little "Google-fu" and discovered you got a GREAT deal on the Jones board!!

I will post the Gear Coop in a deal forum, at least I thought I saw one when previously exploring here.

I don't know if it was something you were shooting for our not, but the Twin Sister is not a twin shape at all. You have a longer noise than tail, more rocker in the nose, and the tail is stiffer than the nose. The fact they call it twin in the name bugs me, it's very misleading.
The sidecut on the Flow is their 5 radial. It still remains the best non bumpy sidecut I've ridden. That with the Canvas being a stiffer than mid flex deck you shouldn't have any issues with grip.

So I've taken everything you guys have said into consideration. I have seen enough reviews on the Jones to feel it could be a great all mountain ride, easy to butter, turn and great for carving. I guess where it falls short is the choppy crud, but I half wonder with a nice pair of bindings could I get a better ride out of it since it's not very damp? I would love to hear from someone who rode one this year.
That said, I totally picked one up at a steal of a price (don't know if I should disclose those) and it will be on it's way to me next week with the option to return it easily.
I also have looked into that Flow Canvas, like the tech and specs. Nivek, you said it's one of the best all-mtn twins, just wondering about it's edgehold for east coast and if it's a fun carver? Maybe similar edgehold on ice to a Rome with Quickrip? I found a great deal on that, a 152, even cheaper than the Jones, which makes me kinda partial to it.
So I picked up the 152 Jones Twin Sister, just debating on whether I should grab the 152 Flow Canvas instead (only size I found). I'm sure I'd be happy with either one, I just don't think I can keep 2 right now, although my fiance wants lots of truck upgrades, so he might just say yes to 2 snowboards

While I like the Jones boards I dint think they're right fit you in this case. They tend to ride a little harsh in that they aren't a very damp ride. You'll feel everything you're riding over and vibrations and whatnot.
Anything Mervin, ride it first. Magne is love/hate.
I really have no bearing on Rome. I've ridden a couple of their decks recently and not one was bad, but I just don't have any kind of lengthy experience. Can't really help there.
I would really look into the Flow Canvas. Basically a women's Rush which is one of the best all mountain twins I've ridden in the recent years.

But I like solid edge grip for where I ride.
If full mag is catchy for you, Mag .5 is probably a good option.

|PalmerFreak||I have magnetraction on my newest deck and I still have it "catch" every once in awhile when I least expect it to. I'd like to from hear someone who's ridden full mag and mello mag to see if they noticed much of a difference.|
