Exclamation Signal Rocker or Rocker Light?

Im having such a hard time deciding whether I want to go with a Rocker full 10 degrees or the Light version which only has 5 degrees. Im a freestyle rider that love doing ground tricks, buttering, presses, and small\medium jumps here and there. Rails\boxes are also welcomed.

Please somebody that has experience with these boards help me make a decision!

If you ever plan on being being more than 5 feet in the air get the Lite.

That was rather simple. Would you recommend the signal rocker over the Rome Artifact? And does the size difference between a Signal Rocker 147 and Rocker Lite 150 matter? I am 5'8" and 135pounds.


PS-Could you briefly explain to me how much of a difference there is between the Rocker and Rocker Lite? I keep getting mixed answers between the two, and from looking around it seems you recommend the Rocker Lite over the Rocker? Why?

I have both the 10-degree and the 5-degree. In my opinion, the 10-degree is better for butters. The 5-degree is still very flexible but a little harder to butter. Both are very fun and pretty light!!!! I don't do jumps or the park, just working easy freestyle tricks. When I want to cruise bigger mountains (ICE/East coast), I use my NS SL.

How easy is it to wash out with 10 degree rocker? And how stable is it when your picking up speed? I ocassionally like to bomb down hills and im wondering if the 10 degree lift will hinder me from doing so.
