My perfect pow board is also camber dominant and carves hard. There are so many "almost" perfect boards for that I've ridden like the Gnu Mullair, TRice Goldmember, Rome Blur, but they all either lack float or carving prowess. I might be after a unicorn short/fat board that floats 200lbs and carves hard but I'm not sure.Buying/selling boards is the only way to do that for some brands, and indeed some markets! Hell, even last night I revisited what potential decks I'd get this season, and the list is STILL too long. It feels like a constant search, even though I AM getting closer.
Oh, and if you ever find that perfect pow board, let me know what it is?
I must admit Bataleon's offerings for 2021 (which we'll get shortly here in Aus) look SO good, I just have to keep reminding myself that for me personally, the TBT didn't sit as well as I hoped it would - that's not to say that other people aren't loving the shit out of the Party Wave though!On my list for next year are the Lib x Lost Rocket, Bataleon Party Wave, Rome Stalefish, Jones Hovercraft, Yes Optimistic, and Nitro Pow. Someone tell me I'm just grasping at straws.
Oh dang. I've been looking at what bindings I'm gonna get this season (currently only have the Burton Clutches), and decided that I'll open my mind, stop being hard-nosed about one-piece plastic chassis (Burton, K2, Flux etc), decide what I truly want in a binding, and shortlist - even if it's from brands that I'd never have considered, as far as bindings go.Reposting here some catalogs/sneak peaks found elsewhere so far.
I bought a couple of their decks, a couple of seasons ago - namely, the Global Warmer and the Party Wave.Since trying the Evil Twin recently I have become a huge Bataleon fan boy. Their 2021 lineup looks stellar with some really nice graphics also.
Looks like they have a new board for those in between youth and adult sizes which was exactly what I was looking at for my 8 year old. 130 and 135 in men’s/youth is tough to find. A 130 matching Evil Twin for my son is gonna make his birthday
Was riding a Rome National 158 - 256 waist and Capita Horrorscope 157 - 258 waist but now I just have the K2 Party Platter 147 which is 262 so i am looking for a second board now to pair with the PP. I'm looking at the Yup and pretty close to putting the order in but just trying to work out the shipping to Australia. Otherwise I'm going to look at the usual suspects around the Bataleon, Jones, Yes and Endeavour ranges available here.I am I the same boat as you, but I am 6’0 210lbs size 11.5 US so the 159s for me are 256mm wide so I squeak in. they do have a few wide options which I believe all are 266 as I remember. What size do you ride?
I've been worrying about that and whether I should be looking towards something with a bigger gap between the boards but I have no interest in any serious park time, maybe a box/rail here and there passing through and no real interest in a serious bombing, brake neck straight line high speed riding. The Jones Stratos is another board I'm thinking about, Endeavour Archetype (not experienced or ride enough for this I reckon) or maybe BOD another and a couple of Yes/Bataleon boards but I always find myself coming back to the Yup. Trouble is it's a hassle trying to get one here in Aus and I'm just waiting to hear back from Signal regarding shipping.A party platter and a yup would make a very fun oriented quiver!
First ebay listing might mean that he doesn't have access to the best prices. I'd expect to pay $150usd+ for shipping alone (at least that is what it cost me to get my Lumberjack into the country). Then you've got the exchange rate. By the time it all adds up, I'd wonder if the Yup is really going to be better than anything you can get locally (not super-specific to your hunt, but e.g. Stratos, Archetype, Ravine, Yes Hybrid, Skeleton Key/Flight Attendant, First Call/Sickstick, Warpig etc).

Here's that Juggernaut review; 2021 Rossignol JuggernautI don’t know why I cannot edit the thread and put your links there (message that one cannot edit more than 10 posts in 7 days while I’ve just edited this post). Whatever.

Some new boards (Juggernaut reviewed by Agnarchy, love this name, too much DOTA) and a general step-up in the graphics imo
Nice previews - thanks! Ugh. Next year's LJ... making me want to spend another $1200Agnarchy Snowboarding has a bunch for 2021. Here are the commentary/previews for the brands and each brand has links to the reviews.
Without nagging you for a review, Party Wave + over Party Wave?Just rode the Party Wave +, Camel Too, and Thunder. Every one of them did not disappoint.
