Default rossignol jibsaw riders?

Hi guys, does anyone own this board? I know rossi isn't so popular but...

I bought a rossi krypto for christmas and I really like the board, its more of a freeride hard charging board. Originally I didn't think much of rossi for snowboards but after seeing the board in person I was really impressed. The only knock on it is the edges are sometimes a little too aggressive for just playing around. It is really better for slashing down the mountain.

So the jibsaw is on sale at sportchek for 200 which is a smoking deal I think. I'm starting to do more park riding and the krypto is the wrong board for that. I want a really fun poppy board to do presses, butters, ollies on. That and hitting small and med jumps in the park is like 70% of the riding I do, and maybe 30% is boxes and rails.

So what do you guys think? The other board I'm considering is a K2 WWW which is supposed to also have a lot of pop to it.

I got to demo the Jib-saw couple years ago & loved it.

I'm debating getting one right now as well.

Where are you located?

I'm seeing this.

Rossignol Jibsaw Magtek 2012/13 - SportChek.ca


I also have 20% off coupons, which would push it to $150 after taxes.

K you convinced me.

I'm going to SportChek.

yea none of the sportcheks near me have the leftover 2012. The new one looks much nicer with the black graphic IMO. Where did you find a 20% off coupon?

ok so I ended up buying the 2014, I've only put a couple days on it so far cause we are in the middle of a cold snap here at sunshine. Here are my thoughts so far:

Setup: 155cm, cartels, burton ions, 160lbs 5'9 rider

The board is super light and responsive. This is my first twin and I was really surprised how hard I could ride it all over the mountain. Edge hold is really good with the magnetraction. This board has the more mellow 7S but fresh out of the box I would say it grips just as hard or even harder than my other board that has 7M edges (bigger) but are more beat up.

Anyways you can really lay into a carve and it doesn't seem to bite into soft snow as hard so transitioning is good. I haven't ridden much chunder but for the most part there is not noticeable chatter at high speeds.

The finish is top notch, really like the graphics on this board and I've gotten a few complements on it.

Jumps really well, its very snappy and poppy. Ollies well. Buttering is ok, it is really easy to get a press going but seems a little harder to lock it in, despite the huge flat spots on the nose and tail.

I suck at jibbing so I won't comment on that.

Overall it is a great all mountain freestyle board and I got it for a steal at just $180. I'm pretty happy with it and it really surprised me at being so good outside of the park.

I have the 2012 and everything here is spot on! I can lay down a mean carve on this board, also noticed it is very light especially coming from my 2009 Burton Clash. RCR profile FTW!

How did you swing it for $180?

I've wanted to go in & check em out, but I just bought another 3 boards last night

Two vintage decks & a brand new Slasher 61

I might have to hold off for a bit

it was 200 and then i used a 10% off coupon. I dunno how they even make money on these boards.. its not even a leftover model and it has a ton of tech in it for the price.

so I want to update this thread cause I have now put 20 more days or so on the board and have a real good feel for it.

I really freakin like this board. It's becoming my favorite to grab when I head for the hill. My setup is the same but I've upgraded to burton SLX boots. This board is so snappy and responsive, it's light and most importantly it is really fun to ride. It does well all over the mountain and carves really well. It doesn't wear me out riding it.

The only weaknesses of this board are powder.. it sucks. Deeper chunder like 6" or more, it gets knocked around a lot. If you are carving trenches in soft snow sometimes the MTX will cut right through and sink you if you're not careful. And if you are really cooking on high speed runs, it gets squirrelly at mach 5.

I can't believe I only paid $180 for this board brand new, if this thing had a libtech logo on it I would have happily paid $400 and not known the difference.
