looking to buy a new board

hey i'm looking to buy a board that's a little more flexible than my board right now. i currently ride a 156 salomon drift. I'm finding it kinda hard to butter in it because it's not flexing as much as i'd like it to, although i could just be mistaken and my technique is off? anyways, what do you guys think of my salomon board? and if i were to buy a new board, what would you guys recommend for a freestyle board with a some flexibility? i was looking at forum or ride. i don't wanna buy burton. Let me know your guys' feedback. thanks!!

strap into your board in your living room and just butter around and that will help break it in. The best butter board out this year is the Capita horrorscope. ITs flat camber so it will be a tad different then a traditional board. Plus that board might be hard to find. After that board Rome Artifact is a soft board and really flexy.

i don't know if i want superrrr flexible. just beacuse i'd like to take it down the mountains as well. i wanna have a both that's both useful for tricks and also ripping down the mountain, so super flexible might not be stable enough when i'm going as faster speeds
