I'm looking to add an All Mountain/Free Ride Board to my quiver.
Currently I'm looking at some fine deals for the:

- K2 Ultra Dream 2014
- Burton Barracuda 2015
- Lib-Tech Jamie Lynn Fundamnmental 2015
- Slash Straight 2015

As for the Lib-Tech JL, I couldn't find a lot on how it handles to powder compared to the others. Anyone has experience on that board?

All recommendations & experience with the boards are welcome.

I considered all of the above and then some....ended up with the YES PYL, very happy with the choice.

That looks like a ride I would be very happy with, but... unfortunately I haven't found a good discount on it (in the EU) and paying full price is above the budget I want to spend.

What's the rest of your quiver right now?
To be honest I'm just starting to build up a quiver. Currently I ride a Capita BSOD 2010, before a Salomon beginner board (can't remember what kind) and before that I was renting or borrowing my brother's board... :happy:

I don't know how much longer my BSOD will last, at least this winter I recon, so I don't want to get a board only specialised in powder but also be able to use it on the piste when there's not so much deep snow.

I also found a good deal on the Jones All Mountain Twin LTD 2015. Is this one supposed to be better in pow then the non LTD? Anyone rode on both?

I would get the Slash. It's a super awesome all mountain deck with powder shaping. Won't be overkill by any means when it hasn't snowed in a while, and when it dies it floats great. The only thing I'd add to your list would be the Ride Berzerker.

Get the JL FunDamnMental so you can be cool like me!

Seriously though, If this is going to be your only board I would probably suggest something with a bit less taper. Maybe a directional twin. The Slash and the Ride Berzerker that Nivek mentioned would be more similar to what I would be looking at. I bought the JL(haven't ridden it yet) as an addition to the quiver. My main board will probably still be my Gnu Billy Goat(a directional twin).

A lot of positive sounds and a good deal for the Slash Straight which also fits my need very well so I've decided to go for that one. Got the one with the orange base, seems to light up in the snow, nice!

Thanks all for your feedback & suggestions!
