Forum Jiblet
 
So what do you guys think of the forum jiblet? It looks like a descent board to me for atleast rails but how do you think it will fair with jumps and other terrain?

Its called the Jiblet for a reason. It may fair well in the park but thats about it.

i thought it was called that coz it looks like a chicken neck!

Your not serious are you? If you take this board outside of the park it will ride like a wet noodle.

Err. The Artifact is great for what itīs made for - jibbing. If you canīt jib, thatīs your problem.

i have no desire to jib; so i couldn't care less

i did however, ask for recommendations for a board that was good on schmeggy / crusty / icy snow, fit for pressing and buttering about the place.

whilst the artifact might be good for such things, i had hoped that advice coming from places like this would have produced something more, than a board that folds like a damn piece of 2 ply toilet paper!

if i trust advice from online forums - that's my problem, would have been a better dismissive.

I like the cut of your jib. Tailslide 270 out. Looks even better on a skateboard.

When did you ask for that advice? Not in this thread.

To the OP, go get yourself an Agent or a Capita Outdoor/Indoor.
Fits your bill pretty good!

Thats you as a rider not the board. That board handles everything you wanted as long as you maintain an edge.
