Hi guys,

having read quite some pages of the forum I am still puzzled which of the mentioned splits to buy.
I am not sure which one to buy, the 164 Solution or the 165 BC.
They both offer what I am looking for: a rather stiff all mountain board with hybrid rocker shape.

What I like about the Jones is that it has magnetraction on all edges but people say that it´s not very stiff though.
Also I read that it has almost no camber between the bindings and is rather flat.

The BC has a very slight taper which sounds great to me, being a board that I also want to ride in deep conditions. How much camber does it have between the bindings?

I like to go fast and enjoy steep terrain in variable conditions.
Any idea which one would be more suited?

Thanks for your advice and greetings from Munich!

The Jones is stiffer than the Prior in a similar size. Both are good boards, if you want stiff, go with the Jones...

Very similar, but the jones seems a little stiffer to me. Can't go wrong with either one though :)

Impossible to get a Jones Solution for a decent price in the right size over here, so I´m going for the BC...

Thanks for all the hints!
