How does this board compare to some of the Lib Techs? I like how it is on the stiffer side.

Might purchase this Jones over the Lib Jamie Lynn... Like the Bataleon Omni 158 as well, but I am up in the air, and the Omni is a mid-flex rated board. Rather have less flex more response..

I thought it is responsive on edge like a camber??

Guessing the Gnu Billy Goat '14 would be a better comparison with the new C3 Camber & med-magnetraction...

Wish the Omni was stiffer for higher speeds nonetheless, or I'd purchase it now.

I ride a lot more in the past 6 or 7 years ago like I use to when I was a teen, and sure as heck need a better board than my ol' Timeless.

Appreciate any help on any of the boards mentioned...

Jones FlagShip
Bataleon Omni
Mervin's C3 Camber(Lib/Gnu)

/\ ditto to what he said,

i purchased one last summer (a 168W) and started riding it this season with the intent it would be my "out west" or "big mountain" board, and it is. Used it on our trip to Kicking Horse last month and it was incredible, delivered in all areas of use. Coming back to Ontario hills i thought i wouldn't use it and go back to my cambered burton board, but the Jones board out performs even on groomers, it's wicked fast, sharp, agile, etc. etc. , hard to use anything else now.

*cough* I'm a girl/lady/gal, however you call female boarders, but definitely a "she" ;)

With the rest I agree. Didn't think of riding my camber Liberty Carbon for one second since the first ride with the Flagship.

Read some reviews elsewhere, and people seems to agree on the FlagShip - they say that it's an amazing big-mountain board, even though many also say it's a little flat(hardly any camber, but still responsive/stable at high speeds) with rocker at the tips. That's a little confusing to me, but everyone says this board is a high speed train.

I'm a fan of camber, and I thought this board did have camber foot to foot???

Wonder if I should just go and make the purchase.. think this board is better suited for me than the Bataleon Omni, just wish I could be 100% sure it has camber as Jones Co states.

I'm changing bindings, got mine right in font of me. Interesting... looks quite different. there's no detectable camber in the middle, just flat... (it's the 12/13) :dunno:

Yup, that's how mine looks like and totally agree with the stable, responsive speed train ;)

Mine is a 2012/2013 Jones Flagship Carbon 161 ...

I didn't think the Flagship changed all that much between versions.
