would say goliath as it's a twin, the manic has offset. I like tbt a lot, just got a 2012 jam beginning of this season. I'm really only used to riding pretty stiff boards so both of the bataleons and the manic has felt pretty soft for me. Can't comment on park performance.
Haven't been on the manic extensively, but I have some concerns over durability of the bataleon base, on minor hits I've recieved some pretty deep scratches. Also their like 88 degree thin edges don't help either.
EDIT: oh right, get the wide one.
