Default jib board decision

so i delamed my arbor draft on sunday. Not to angry i was throwen down some gnar back lips on a big down handy. but any ways i need a new deck. I mainly ride park, i mean i go to a hill that has a pretty decent park and i dont even hit any other runs, and maybe ride the lift 4 times in 4 hours. I almost never ride tannys so i need a jib board. So heres my questoin, would you recommend a k2 www rocker, or a lib tech box scratcher. If the box scratcher isnt that much better I will prob go with the www just because its cheaper. I have enough for the scratcher but im a college student so money is tight.

For sure the Weapon. Best jib board on the market if you ask me.

Everyone is super hyped on them because they're 'in'. I personally think for jibbing the K2 rocker is better. Thousands will disagree with me but I have a theory to back it. The rocker on B'tech is in the middle. This makes nose and tail presses easier. But what happens to boardslides on rails huh? It does the opposite because the board must flex that much more to get "wrapped" on the rail. The K2 rocker is outside the bindings. Between the binding its flat. So you get the same ease of presses without hurting boardslides as much as B'tech. POW

thanks dood. see i wasnt sure i mean yeah every one is hyped on them, but thats just it EVERY ONE is. IDk personally board slides r way easier than presses so ill take an easier press over an easier board slide but what you said does make sense. the www has some pretty sweet tech too so i think im gunna go with a www because it is cheaper and very compareable

Yeah I ment to mention that. The Nanar is not better enough to warrant the jump in price between it and the rocker Weapon. And I don't know if I just read what you said wrong or if you didnt get what I was saying, but the Weapon presses just as well as the Nanar.
