Hardtail? Duel suspension?

Ive been in the mountain bike world now for a few years. Ive always heard people talking about how hardtails are better than duelys and vise versa. Well what do you guys think about this? Honestly i love hardtails and whould never buy a duel suspension bike! BTW, when I say better i mean for hitting 5 to 15 foot jumps!

So, if you have no intention of buying a dual suspension bike, what exactly are you asking?

Lol, I think the people you are associating with are stupid. Hardtails and duels have different purposes and uses. Neither are better than the other.
