k2 jibpan compare to a Graft?

I had my heart set on a graft but just found a jibpan for $150. How do they compare. I don't want the softest board you can find but I do want a twin tip board with a centered stance and the price is right. I won't be hitting a ton of rails but want to work on my spins and my switch riding this year.

When the fuck did we get ice cream?

jibpan is a much better board.

the graft is basically an artifact with some carbon and such, more comparable to the k2 darkstar.

The Jibpan is basically the www on steroids. Its got carbon stringers throughout giving it a lot of pop. Its got a sh!t ton of effective edge since its got that whole jib inspired thing k2 does (shorter nose and tail with more effective edge). with more effective edge, you get to ride a shorter board with the control of a longer board, it feels awesome. AND, the jibpan is tapered at the nose and tail making it easier to spin. and my buddy delamed his graft last year.

The graft is like the artifacts big brother as Nivek mentioned. Its very soft in my opinion. The Jibpan while it has "jib" in its name is more of a high end park board that handles all mountain freestyle. I found its a better jump/pipe board than a straight jib board. For 150 snag it up and know you'll be on a killer board.

WWW is a limp dick Jibpan is more like soft serving a girl after a bit too much drinking, its hard, its soft, its inbetween.

Best quote of the year?

I think I'll go for the WWW then. I like really soft boards.

Sounds like its the ticket for me if its not too soft and has a ton of pop. Alaric there is only one available so I'm not telling you where I'm getting it I'll let you know what site it is after I get it though because I'm cool like that and there are some good deals to be found.

Its probably the one left over on the evogear.com outlet page that was the shop employee edition from 2 years ago.

No that's not the one I'm looking at but I did run across it in my searching. I found an 07 for $150. $200 isn't that bad of a deal for that one on EVO.

That sounds like the exact board I need because I do see a large amount of powder and spend a good bit of time in the trees. I don't want something thats going to be flopping around under my feet when Im really getting it, but I'm also sick of my all mountain boards and how stiff they are.
