Based on my email exchange with YES, and my local shop, I don't think anyone will see any discounts because of the insert issue.

I thought it was small for its size, and overall was kind of just 'meh'. It also didn't do well in the wet heavy powder we get here. It was a chore to ride in that stuff to say the least. I'm between...

Put the T-Rice on a YES PYL and the Atlas on a Jones MT. Nice matches for each board. Really digging the new toe caps.

I didn't care for the board, or the customer service. If I thought the board was all that great I would have kept it.

The T-rice and the Jones is far superior IMO.

I just spoke with support at Jones. The inserts are centered over the side cut/contact points. The board is in fact 20mm longer in the nose. All else is twin.

Someone measured the MT and said it's inserts are dead center between contact points, and that the only non twin thing about it is the extended nose.

Any input on that? If it's twin between...

What do you mean when you say the board is short? A 158 is not 158cm?

If the camber peak is off the same amount as the inserts then you have a setback board. Nothing more. Simple as that, done. ...
