Need playful jib stick

So I'm looking for a board thats super playful and pretty damn soft but that's not going to be completely sketchy when hitting a box or rail at high speeds. Been looking at WWW and ride kink as well as the stare/scare master(maybe a bit stiffer than the last two?). I know that the WWW is pretty noodley but Im not completely opposed to that as long as it's not going to be too completely squirrely when going fast around the terrain park. Thanks in advance.

Edit: So I think I'm looking for something just slightly stiffer than the WWW

Go to my Jib Stick review in the Reviews section. I reviewed my Stepchild Jib Stick, and talked about some of the other boards like WWW and LIB bananas. I like the StepChild a lil more cause its not a wet noodle. But good luck finding one. The WWW was really impressive, but quite soft for my taste.

Not to thread jack, but Nivek, do you think the Capita and the Darkstar are similar enough not to have both? I have an 09 Darkstar on the way as my "do everything" board and am thinking about picking up a Scaremaster simply because it's as cheap as hell.

Bataleon Fun kink. Just as you described and won't fold or chatter when the going gets speedy and chundery.
I have been so impressed with this board all mountain it does things I did not think a board this soft could do.

Effortless stable and extremely playful and FUN.

Slightly set back directional twin. all mountain does everthing extremely well

Riding it now in PNwest pow and it is blowing my mind. Got on my TRS btx and wanted my funkink. unreal.

Yeah I have been looking a lot into the fun.kink. But is it actually set back stance wise or just directional in flex?

only setback half a centimeter. .5 So, its almost a twin. I ride it completely centerd and its a bit more forgiving riding switch, and a little quicker initiating riding forward. I cannot say enough good things about this stick and it just continues to blow my mind the way it performs all mountain.. incredibly versatile and fun fun fun.

TBT really really shines in the park and pipe.

The Darkstar has a Sintered base and the Scare has an extruded one, I like extruded better than sintered for park and jibs and such. I was very close to owning both. At 140lbs I was looking at having a 148 Scare and a 155 Darkstar. The Scare was my Park jib board and the Darkstar would have been my rest of the mountain board.

So I definitely think they're both worth having. Whatever size you think you should get in the Scare get the size below it. Thats what I did. So say you weigh 165-190, get the 152. 130-150 get the 148. Size 10 or bigger and 170, get the '52 wide. 190-220 get the 156 and so on.
