ive rode both of these boards. the www rocker was nice for the day, then i started to do some jibbing and it snapped on me first day. the fix is a great board though. its alot of fun to ride. even though its stiff, it has 0 camber so it wont seem like a stiff camber. and since it is a stiffer board, i reccomend getting a smaller size. especcially if your riding park. and if your riding powder the 0 camber will help it float more on powder, so you can have a smaller board and not have to lean back really far. and it has spoon tip, this is where the nose and tail are shaped like a spoon. it helps for butters and presses. it also has the est/ics setup witch is cool and allows you to have a wider stance than a regular board. i would say get the fix as you can see, haha i wrote alot. but you could go either way and ask others. its mostly opinion. and i if your riding park i would say look at rome. the artifact is my next board probably. hope this helps a little.

i also forgot to add in that the reverse camber in the www is not the same as a regular reverse camber like a skate banana. the reverse starts at the feet rather than the middle. ive also heard good and bad about this board
