So the season started more than badly and then got better than its been in years.

My new little piste bashing bad boys haven't been taken out yet, there's too much pow to deal with!

As a result I've been hunting for some fun planks to play in all this fresh deep powder. Currently on Volkl Mantras, but finding them just too short & a bit passé at 3 seasons old. I've found some Armada JJs (everyone is raving about them!) but just keen for some input..

JJs
TSTs
K2 Coombacks
Any others

Strapped in with either Look Pivots, Marker Griffons..?

It appears I can get them for somewhere in the region of £560 mounted and sent. Am I a fool to miss this opportunity?!

Those would do. Also available in four other flavours, including a backwards one.

Sport Conrad are doing free shipping again, so might be worth having a look around there. Just had a look and you can get the Atomic Bentchetler (very similar to the JJ, maybe a bit fatter), for 519 euro with Griffons.
Anything worth doing is worth getting hurt for

Ahh ok, you put 560 pounds, not euros in your original post. I'd buy them, it's a pretty good deal.
