which board ?
First of all sorry for the my English :) is f.. poor...

height - 176 cm (about 5-10)
weight - 85 kg (+, - 3 kg)

I ride the groomed terrain - quickly, I am Intermediate. I learn to very quickly ..

I want to learn buttering and some jumps. I do not drive jibbing.

I learned to ride on board "matrix gyro 150" ( I can not find info about the flex board. But I think it is very stiff - I can hardly press.

Now I want the new board. Matrix is a short board for fast ride. And very stiff for butter..

thinking about:
Flow Shifty 2014
2014 Flow Shifty - Snowboard Specs and Ratings
Flex 6 (1-10) or 3 (1-5)
Available only 157


Flow Quantum 2014
2014 Flow Quantum - Snowboard Specs and Ratings
Flex 7 (1-10) and 3.5 (1-5)
Available only 158

Which board is better for me? For fast ride flex 7 is better for buttering is better softer snowboard.I have a dilemma :) Although I do not know whether the big difference between flex 6 and 7 ..

Thank you

Hello, and welcome to the forums.

I have no experience with either board, but judging from the description only I'd go with the shifty. It's both softer and shorter. You want a softer board for buttering and smaller jumps.
