Kink? or DH?

after breaking in my artifact 156 i can no longer use it as effective outside of the park. It worked for a bit but now I can deff see how good for jibbing/urban it shall be.

with that said I want to go much smaller, 147-153, and stiffer, even slightly. Im not opposed to another jib stick, most dont seem nearly as flexible as the artifact haha.

Ive had my sights on the DH and kink. a local shop called evo has both for a great price in several sizes help me a bit folks!

I wont lie though both the rome agenda and graft are optional as well.

I have an 09 Kink, very soft and lightweight.But yeah if your looking at something stiff it wont be the Kink. My kink is softer than my Dominant by far.

prolly the DH then, the kink will prolly be too similar to the artifact.... maybe slightly stiffer

Go with a DH or Society then. The DH is alot of fun and I was using it to charge most of the blacks at Summit Central this past weekend as well as taking it through the park. Great on everything and the pop sticks make the board ollie super easy. Its also pretty soft in the tip and tail making it butterable while still being able to hold a decent edge
