Default Cambered park noodle?

End of season sales just started up and I'm looking for a new park whip. Need something for slow days to use in the park when the groomers suck and the glades are like running your board across a cheese grater. Love camber, can't stand rocker. Park for me entails flatland tricks on stairs, rails and boxes.

Looking for a soft flex, something with C/R/C, or flat camber. I am not interested in buying a full rocker or R/C/R board.

Boards on the roster, ordered from most interested to least...

Burton Parkitect (not going to bother with EST bindings)
NS Evo
K2 Hit Machine
Ride DH

Anything else for me to look into or thoughts on this lineup of boards would be fantastic. Thanks lads (and lasses)!

The NS evo is rocker. And the K2 is flat line. I'd go with your first or last choice. I would also give you the Ride Buck-Up which is mini camber under foot. I love it!!!! Any question about it let me know. I say Ride Buck-Up. The tip and tail and soft enough to butter with ease.

If you're also ok with dead flat: Nitro Haze, Ride Kink, K2 Weapon, Burton Ration, Bataleon Disaster, Rome Artifact, Slash Happy Place, Salomon Salomonder, Capita Outdoor, or a Stepchild Dirtbag.

+1 for the Nitro Haze. Low and slow but lots of fun.

I get the logic behind the Hit machine and the DH, I also understand why you overlooked the Evo. But you say that like you aren't a fan of the Parkitect as a noodle. Why?

The Signal Park looks pretty rad. What would you say is a good price on one? I found one for ~$300 just shooting off the hip.

Because the Parkitect isn't a noodle? It's a mid-stiff deck, not saying that it's the stiffest thing out there, but when you reference a noodle, I'm going to assume you want something like a Kink, Artifact, WWW, Horrorscope, etc.

I was under the impression the Parkitect was softer than the Process, I stand corrected. Would you say its closer to the Custom perhaps? Anyways.

The Artifact and Signal Park both look like playful camber decks. But the Disaster and Salomander both look better for flatland stuff. Which is what I was ultimately going for.

The Kink looks pretty stiff this year, I feel like I could do better. Ride gave it a 5 and most people are saying it has a medium flex. Same thing for the Outdoor living.
