Help me pick a board !!!!

Hey guys I've been riding for the past 6 years on a burton bullet and I think its time to change it up.the board feels really stiff and doesn't have a lot of pop. I'm looking for a board with a lot of pop to do flat tricks also go off small jumps do 180's 360's etc. and rails.
I am 6'3
205lbs
Size 13 shoe
Help me find a board with alota POP for the park and a fun mountain board too!

NS Proto HDX 160cm.

I'll probably get shot for that because everybody around here is too scared to suggest the Proto for fear of being called a fanboy but it's a fucking nice board no matter what anybody says and it would suit your needs.

If you're more park focused than all mountain then the NS Revolver would also suit. I just can't fault my proto that's all.

Fanboy.

In all seriousness, the Proto to me is a slightly stiffer park deck, but it's still a park deck. It'll handle the whole mountain fine, but not great, IMO. If the trail is smooth and groomed it'll fly. If it's pushed around freshies, then it's a bit of a chore.

Ollies were pretty good though. I'm really close to pulling the trigger on a K2 Happy Hour though, to see if the pop is much better. Really getting into popping off hits and what not, so I'm trying to find the poppiest all-mtn board out there. The lifted profile, ollie bar etc. sound great.

I would recommend the Forum doubledog destroyer. Its a park board, but It does great all around the mountain. If I could say one thing about this board it would be that it has an insane amount of pop with the doubledog profile. It's pretty good on rails as well.

Jesus Christ hardasacatsdick

NS Revolver I'd go with.
I love my Forum Youngblood Doubledog 155W, it has LOTS of pop and I can do 360's on flat ground all day

Errrr no, surely you've been called fuck face before? I'd imagine that's almost a compliment compared to what you're used to. I don't even know why you're calling me salty but I can only assume you're hoping to lick my balls. Shall I get the peanut butter?
