Default Best magnetration + rocker + park board for women?

Just looked at Transworld, it seems their best park boards don't have magnetration and rocker features.

None of the libtech and Gnu boards are on the list.

Any recommendation for a board that has the features I want? Thanks.

Anyone tried the Gnu Ladies Pickle?

Plan to buy offseason to save money. What is the best discount I can hope for for the kind of board I want?

gnu b-nice or roxy banana smoothie. Expect to find about 30% savings on off season mervin mfg boards. That is their retail markup.

That list is "Good Wood" meaning, that some boards like the GNU Pickle, won't be on that list because they're not "Good Wood".

And... I ride a 2014 GNU Pickle (Men's). I bought it on Boxing Day for 25% off... You can probably find it off season for 40%, if anyone still has it in stock.

I like it, its a very forgiving ride, but you have to really bend your knees and put your weight into it for it to carve on ice.

My only very minor concern about it, is that the graphic is backwards (I ride goofy), as your bindings have to go on to match their asymmetrical heel/toe sides.

You should look at Roxy boards as well. Made by Mervin, so some good options there for the ladies as well, such as the XOXO.

It seems to me, if ur riding park...you would not want rocker nor mag...you would want the pop of cam and what use would mag be in the park?

But if you want mag and rocker...look at gnu bpro c2 or c3 profiles and lady's choice with assm pickle.
