Help with new park board (mainly kickers)

I have a salomon sabotage at the moment and I really like that its a stable ride because its positive camber. It's great in the park but its very soft so it washes out sometimes on the bigger 40ft kickers.

I've been looking at getting a new board:

Ride buckwild
Rome mod / mod rocker
Slash Paxson
Nitro eero pro model


Has anybody ridden any of these?

I'm don't know much about flat camber but I want my board to be stable when going fast and before I leave the lip of the kicker like camber provides?

Thanks guys!

Mod Rocker would work. Buck Up over the Buckwild. Paxson is likely to soft. The Eero has always been a seriously gnarly board. In the past he'd only ever ride his actual pro model on the biggest jumps. From Nitro you're better off with aT1 camber. Others I'd take a close look at would be the Echelon Avenger or Flow Shifty.

The mod rocker has flat camber with some rise in tip and tail will it ride with the stability of camber or more like a rocker board? I don't get on we'll with rocker, I find them unstable when going fast and before the lip of a jump.

I thought the Paxson might be to soft.

I've noticed some pro park riders ride flat camber board now and I'm interested in why that is?

I've heard great things about the mod rocker, nitro eero and the buck wild. Haven't heed much about the buck up because its fairly new I think?

I was looking at the t1.5 but it looks quite soft and again the pros like Sven, eero and gjermund ride the eero pro in the park?

Thanks

My bad I thought the Mod Rocker was camrock. Camber Mood then.

The T1 is honestly stiffer than the Rook. And be skeptical of whatever you "see" pros riding. They could very easily be riding a different board with the graphic you see. It depends on how hard the brand might want a certain model pushed.

The Buck Up is basically just a DH2 with pop walls.

o really? I didn't know that! I'm very easily influents by what pros ride if I like there style. I love Sven thorgens style (nitro) , stale sandbech (Rome mod) and billy morgen (ride buck wild)

I know I shouldent buy a board because a pro rides it but I think they must ride it for a reason? Maybe I'm wrong haha!

I guess It's between the

nitro t1.5
Ride buck up
Rome mod

Out of those brands are any of them known for making better boards?

Thanks for the advise!
