Default trying to get a new boardd

Hi to give some background of myself first i m a skater who started snowboardin not too long ago about couple seasons ago
my older bro bought me a Burton Blunt which I ve been ridin. I tried my friends Signal Rocker and fell in love with it I could butter ,Ollllie, do rails and boxes so much better it felt like ridin a skateboard with loose trucks
but the downside was that the landing on the jumps was kinda sketchy and didnt feel stable as I did on my Blunt
so I have been looking at the boards and I narrowed down my choices to K2 WWW JIBPAN and Darkstar
Darkstar seems like a pretty good primary all around board which i am looking for but is it gunna give me fast spins and good presses like Rockers?
i need help~

Well the signal park is just a stupidedly soft board that's why your landings are so sketchy, The www is pretty damn soft to. I dunno I've always heard superb things on the jibpan as a great all around park board. If it were my decision I would be getting the jibpan, It's actually one I'm considering next year since they're adding the rocker to it.

Darkstar and Jibpan have similar (not the same, the Jibpan is only marginally stiffer) flex in the middle, but the Jibpan has more carbon in the tips making them stiff(er) and lending the board more pop. The Jibpan has Jibtips and Harshmellow for lower swing weight and dampening.

I like my Jibpan over my buddy's Darkstar. I can lock into presses much easier for whatever reason and I found it to be more playful. You can take both on the mountain and, depending on the length relative to your weight, both can and will excel at jumps

The Weapon is a straight up noodle. It'll press easier than the others and spin just as well as the Jibpan, but it's still so soft that you'll have almost as much trouble on jumps as you did with the Park Rocker.

no board is going to give you any of that, all that stuff depends on your technique and skill.
