- Powercore tip-to-tail wood provides strength, board feel, and flex
- Bi-Lite laminate uses biaxial fiberglass for easier turn initiation and a forgiving flex
- Dual progressive sidecut absorbs the impact of landings and adds power to your turns
- Profile tip is tapered to disperse energy and reduce swing weight
- Hi-Def FH base provides durability and speed
- Gullwing camber keeps it loose on the rails without sacrificing control in the steeps

I'm trying to decide between this and the gull-wing. Could anyone shed some light on the difference between them and their preferred use?
I got the 2008 wide josh mills signature and must say after 1 full season of riding I love this board. i needed to upgrade to a wide since i'm 6'2 215lbs. Im glad i did. I was looking for a true park board that could handle hi speeds on the MN ice. this board performs well in the park with its 3 response rating (perfect amount of flex and lots of pop), you can press anything in sight, the swing weight is very low...which is nice, since its a wide the deck doesn't feel like your riding on a sliver, base stays fast even after all the rails. Overall this board rips! I would def recommend it. i picked mine up for $100 from a nitro pro but i would of paid full price easily.

Would this board be good with someone with a size 14 boot? Because i cant find a good all mountain twin that can accomadate my feet
yeah it will be good with your large boots
Is the "Hi-Def FH," an extruded base?

Are you a fan of boards like the Burton Un...Inc, Ride Society, K2 Believer? If those are boards that you have owned or considered adding to you're quiver then the Nitro Team should be on your short list as well.
In the past, Nitro has had a reputation of having super stiff boards that weren't very playful. That has completely changed and Nitro is producing boards of all flex patterns that are playful and snappy in the right places.
The Team is the culmination of all the efforts they've made recently. The board has about a 6 out of 10 overall flex, but is snappy in the nose and tail when you want it to be and just soft enough between the binding inserts to be fun jibbing around the mountain.
The sidecut of the board is aggressive, but isn't going to hang you up on boxes or rails with the slightly blunted out shape to the nose and tail. The swing weight is great as well as setting up on your heel side or toe side edge and initiating a FS or BS spin is easy with the sidecut and the weight of the board is great to completely bring the deck around.
I was lucky enough to finish out the 2009 season out on this deck at Snowbird as was able to ride it in Utah Powder, Wet Powder, Icy Groomers, Slush, chop & regular conditions. The board charged through everything and the base was consistently fast in all conditions. If you're looking for one board that will handle everything on the mountain The Team is a great choice.
If you have a size 10.5 US or smaller snowboard boot, take a look at the regular model. And if you're down with the new Rocker/Reverse Camber Technology, take a look at the Nitro Team Gulwing Model.
the team wide... this board is been around for a long time due to its capability to do it all... this board can ride park, backcountry, big mountain for all you big footed riders out there... its the best board for what i call a true big footed freestyle rider... this meaning the riders out there that love the whole mountain, and want to handle it all in one day but cant fit on the normal width decks... with a side cut that handles as well switch as it does regular but still can hold an edge going 90 miles an our down the mountain and doesnt feel like a slow wide board normally does... the directional twin shape gives it the most versatility of any board out with a standard camber to hold up to all the beatings, cliff drops, kickers, and pow slashes you can give it.... this board is truly one of the best riding boards i have been on... and its very wallet friendly so you still have money for ramen noodles to have for lunch...
