MTN twin 157 jones

NS proto ct ...ok is like TRS from LIb tech !
Im 175 , 75 kg . expert rider . i use 157 for resorts ! all type resorts.
Jibbing / park 153/155 stevens from Capita . One foot stable really good ,speed very good , flex medium stiff . powder exelent up tp 1 mts or 3 feet . i think this MTN TWIN bord will give you the sens of all mountain/park , instead like Proto is like park/allmountain. but not for Alaska or like movies deeper or further ! you got that ! do ! you need 164 like hover craft or flagship ..directional freeride. but if you want to ride fast super fast and pist or powder ! with absolut control get the Flag ship ! 161 and up ...good luck !

Flowbits I'm just wondering, currently I own a Never Summer Proto CT 12/13 and am looking for something a bit stiffer for the bigger resorts since the CT feels too chattery imo when going a bit faster. I do however like the flex the board has, I could probably handle a bit stiffer board.

Would the Mountain Twin fit the bill for this? I'm also quite interested in the Magnetraction that seems to get more love than the Vario cut on this

I haven't had any edge hold issues outside of what I factored in as operator error. I had one washout on a hard pack/ice run when coming back onto the piste. Other than that, edge hold has been solid. I'm putting a lot of weight on the board, that might be a factor in my favor, but overall I trust the board to do what I want when I want...and hold.

On the waxing, i dont know if these guys are talking about the factory wax or not, but I didn't find the factory wax to be anything other than a factory wax job. But the board is great.

SkittlesRgood Love the reviews. I just picked up the mountain twin and hoping to get it out this weekend. I was looking for something more playful than my ride highlife UL. I'm glad to see people are enjoying the board as much as the reviews said I would.
