I think the Ollie Pop is more for beginner-intermediate riders, so you'd probably be happier on a different deck.

I loved my B-street: very soft, but could still handle the mountain. However, it is pretty unstable in choppy conditions. I prefer my Pandora because it is just as soft, but still suitable for all-mountain riding (better camber style and a damper ride).

I've heard good things about both the Park Pickle and the Blender, but I've never tried either of them.

For something with more pop: the Burton Lipstick, the Roxy Eminence, or the Arbor Cadence.
I ride a board i bought from my cousin a few years back. Its a lesser known brand and its pretty much just an all mountain board. I've been using my friend's board to ride park. I need to step up my set up and I feel more than comfortable investing in the better boards with the experience I;ve gained in the past few seasons.

I ride East Coast, so we often have ice or hard packed conditions and a lot of man-made snow. I only see powder like twice a year so the board needs to be able to put up a fight in east coast conditions. How well does the Pandora butter/press? My free style riding is mainly rails boxes and medium jumps. I don't ride pipe so I'm not looking for something stiff like a pipe board, but like I said, east coast weather here.

Its hard finding that playful park board that can still put up when it comes to stability. I'm not really looking for anything as still as the lipstick or eminence. I read a short buyer-review from an east-coaster who said the B-street was fine for handling east coast terrain but I don't trust everything I read. You said you have experience on both boards and I do like that dampening in the pandora, many people say it brings alot to the board. Also: doesn't the magne traction on the b-street help out the stability? I would think that might help out a ton on the ice while still keeping it buttery soft in the park.
