ground trick&rail boards

Hi, ive had my old morrow Blaze board for the last 3 years and its pretty beat up and i would like to upgrade now.

I want to start doing grounds tricks and rails so id like a flexible but durable board. there are so many out there im not really sure what to be looking at, ive only been going alot this season too, i go atleast every 2 days.

I'm 5'10" and weigh 145lb.

any help would be much appreciated, along with any ground trick tips lol, everytime i try a 180 or anything its like i freeze, it just doesnt feel natural so any tips would be awesome, thx ahead.

I liked the Arnie 5000. its a solomon board great for rails and easy to butter. It is a very flexible board and all of the people i have met who have ridden them love them including my self. I own one. Oh and the graphics this year are sweet!!!!!

the burton fix is pretty soft and with zero camber and so it super easy to butter i find. On rails ive had no issues just detune it a bit more.

K2 rocker Weapon 152, Bataleon Evil Twin 151, Capita Stairmaster 148, Burton Hero 152. I've yet to hear anyone say anything really bad about the Hero. Even Burton haters can't hate it. 148 on the Capita cause it not rocker or TBT. I weigh 145 and the 148 is what I ride.

In my opinion if your going to go with the softness of the Artifact, get the Weapon. Its comparably soft but has a longer effective edge which is magic. And it doesn't have bronze edges, which sketch me out for some reason, probably cause they're too soft to do anything but round them off.

Sorry I don't have any board advice, but as for this...

Practice and commit! The more you do it, the less unnatural it'll feel. You'll also be less scared of falling if you biff a few times and see that it doesn't hurt as much as you'd think it would (except for boxes and rails... those fuckers hurt!). If you don't mentally commit to a trick, you'll more than likely screw it up.
