well medium flex already rules out the www...

i would check out the stairmaster extreme(which i just picked up for 250$), the stairmaster or scaremaster, the bataleon evil twin, burton hero, or neversummer evo-r

K2 Jibpan is a sick park deck if you're going for med-flex, although ppl usually go soft-flex for rails.

Burton Hero. Fun board... Just got mine and rode it for the first time. This thing will do real well on rails and boxes.. but will also give you some play outside the park.

I do plan to pick up the WWW in the offseason for my fun park board

K2 Darkstar, Ride DH, CAPiTA Stair/Scare, Bataleon Evil Twin, Nitro T1.

A Hero and a Weapon...? You don't need that. Thats like having a Weapon and a Rocker Weapon. Barely different, so barely different its pointless.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

have you rode both???there considerably different to where i would say its not completely pointless because they do have different riding styles.

i do agree with the fact that you do not need both because the hero is more then ample in the park. the hero is so versatile..
