Nope, i am waiting for the snow to get deeper, then swap karakoram off my NS onto the venture, and put the sparks on the NS.

How about a side by side with the split halves put together showing the rocker?

Yeah, do you know that it's bad form to have two retailers ship you boards knowing your going to send one back? Shopping is for deciding, not buying. It does us no good to have retailers losing money on splitting. Apparently you don't shop well either cause you left bcrider hanging too. I'm all for getting a good deal but you've got a lot to learn, kid.



CHILL BRO..... CHILL.....

This is snowboarding, not McCain versus Obama.....

I'm willing to admit I came on too strong. Sorry dude.

C'mon Brooks, I could give a shit about gear but that I do care about screwing people. None of the split retailers or manufactures are getting rich on us cheap dirtbags so we might as well play fair when them. I grew up in a house where my dad ran a small business so maybe I'm overly sensitive to shit like that.

Carry on. :guinness:

nice to see the comparison, one big difference seems to be the front foot inserts on the jones are a lot further forward than the storm..which makes me think it has a different flex pattern..the storm looks like it has a "longer nose" for more float and may flex/float more than the jones.........also the nose clip on the jones is set further forward.....both boards look good ..27 deg c outside 5 weeks and no rain, la nina is in here in nz.....


Yes, but the storm have a narrower stance overall compared to the jones. look at the back foot holes too and you will see that they are further from the tail than the jones.

all in all the stance on the storm may be about 2 centimeters behind the jones.

no comment on the flex, maybe darrick can do some handflexing for us?

Oh please. Both of those idiots wouldn't know what to do with a splitboard, fat j's or Opeth. Leave that to the pros (ie...us knuckle draggers) :thumpsup:
