need help choosing bike.

Hi im kinda new to mountain biking, and im looking mostly for a bike thats good on jumps and stuff, i also might be doing a bit of actual mountain biking and i dont want it to be too heavy so climbing wont be hard. so in all im looking for a bike thats light and can handle pretty big jumps and stuff, i was looking at mabye the kona coiler, and the ellsworth joker. but i think they might be a little too heavy.

The coiler would probably be a good al around bike. Strong frame, nice brakes, a bit heavy, but it makes up for it in strength.
