Going to pick this up from Sport Chek today (have the 10% coupon as well!). From what I've read it is too good of a deal to pass up. Hopefully they still have some and in the size I want. Should be able to test it out Thursday night

I agree re the buttering... I have the 155 and it is hard to ge tit up there...but once you do it's pretty..er...up!

I tried a 153 and it seemed waay more playful in this respect..although I don't know how much was in my head there... can't see that 2cm would make thaaat much difference.

It sure ain't a pow-pow monster, but it can still work...

I played on my pals Capita DOA and was surprsed how much lighter that board was...although it could be the bindings? I have the Rossi Cudas (I really don;t like them btw)... he had some Union bindings...

anyhoo... shred!

So what buttering trick involves getting a tit up there? I want to know.

Kidding aside, I read somewhere flex of the board is different depending on the size with the Jibsaw.

Something like :

153 for Jib/Park
155 for Jumps
157 for all mountain

definately the bindings.. the jibsaw is a feather it's one of few boards I've picked up and gone "huh... why is it so light.." I don't remember the DOA being like that but I could be wrong.

I went to revelstoke last weekend with some girls, rode the jibsaw the first day because I thought they would be skiing slowly and I could play around while I was waiting. Ended up finding some fantastic pow stashes and the jibsaw wasn't terrible, as long as I pressed through the real deep stuff. You can ride this board slow and still have a great time.

Tried this board out for the first time with my Rome Arsenal bindings. For some reason I thought I would try out a more narrow stance, that was uncomfortable! For reference I previously rode a Rome Artifact 1985 (with the same bindings).

The snow was chunder at best, but I was able to still have fun and carve it up. I have never ridden a magna traction type board before and it worked great on all of the icy, chundery, crunchy conditions that were present.

The first time I went off one of the medium jumps I scared the shit out of myself with how much pop this thing has! It has great stability off kickers and side hits which is what I was looking for. Interestingly, I actually found it difficult to boardslide boxes and rails. Compared to my old board it felt like it was catching slightly (which was uncomfortable) and difficult to press properly. I might detune the edges or I might just avoid the boardslides when I'm on this board.

Overall it's a great board for charging and hitting anything on the mountain!

Nice. I really want to check the Jibsaw and compare it to my board (Endeavor Live 2014)... very similar profile. And yes, the pop is out of this world.

Let's see if we can meet Sunday...

My recommendation: don't kill the board by detuning the edges. It is not a Jib/rail board, so keep that magnetraction and the awesome profile for kicking ass when the snow is not A+. I detuned the contact pts on mine, and it is awesome on pow and charging soft groomers, but when conditions are like they've mostly been all season i kinda wish i had left the contacts sharp for extra hold.

For sure you can have a go on it! I was thinking the same thing with the edges, just to leave them be.
