Review 2014 Yes Jackpot

I tried finding a review on here for this board can't can't seem to find one.
Has anyone ridden this? Would like to hear feedback about this board and how it handles from an all mountain freestyle perspective though I know it's slightly more geared towards park.
Thanks

I've read a few ppl on this forum who iir had good things to say about Yes boards. (...I couldn't say about any specific board however. ) Although hearing that the company's cust. service ppl couldn't even tell you about their own decks? That doesn't instill a great deal of confidence.

I felt the 14 was stiffer but otherwise Niveks review is spot on with my experience. Mid flex hybrid camber twin, like you said on the park side of all mountain freestyle. Depends where/what you like to ride but it's a solid all around board.

Czoid what boards are you looking at? I've been on the majority of their boards over the last couple years, haven't spent enough time on any to give a full review but could at least give you an idea of flex.

Brew town, I was looking at what ever was next inline from the jackpot, just a lil stiffer. But I still don't understand how yes would not a a flex rating on there boards.?. I would have bought one if they would have one....would the basic be next inline in the flex rating?

I've only rode the 2012 Basic and hand flexed the 14. The 12 is about the same flex as the 14 Jackpot and since they have added more camber and stiffened up the flex on all their decks since moving from Nidecker, I think it's safe to say the Basic will be marginally stiffer. Fairly similar though, both well rounded softer all mt freestyle boards.
