a good mtn/park flexabile board??

hey guys, newbie here, i've got a burton farm board 154 i used this past season, i love it, but i wanna get another board to use for this season thats good and flexabile and light, what would u suggest? at our slopes here i seen a few guys with K2 www weapon boards that seems really flexable! and what size would u think, seems like the shorter the better maybe....thanks

well if u want an all mountain board that can also do park

here are some options
Burton Custom
Burton Operator
Rome Agent
Burton Clash

those are just a few
not sure bout flex but they all preform decently well in park
but the clash is the cheapest if price is on ur mind

you think the farm is stiff? if u go softer youd be sacrficing speed and stability and u wont land jumps like u do when riding the farm. for all mountain u shouldnt be rinding a board softer than the farm.

If this board isn't gonna be used exclusively in the park you could go bigger.

and the Weapon 148 would definitely NOT be a good choice for you.

say what if i tried a weapon 153 or 155 then? i just really want a flexable board...my farm does good, cant get it up decent on wheelies and all but, j/w on another board...would i be able to control a shorter board on the mtn better though? i've tried 155, 153,151 before i bought my 154 farm, the 151 felt pretty good but couldnt tell a diff in the others from my 154...thanks

Maybe you should check out the K2 Darkstar. It what I have and it's an awesome all-mountain/freestyle board. From what I heard, the WWW is really geared towards the park. I started doing more freestyle riding this season. I don't have any problems doing presses or butters with the Darkstar. Also, I can take it on any type of terrain... except it's just OK in deep powder (or maybe it's just my skill level). I ride the 152cm Darkstar and weigh 135lbs.

they are lol. they are all in the same "class" as the farm. the farm is really solid for jumping, do you want a like super jibby board for rails and boxes?

the darkstar isnt going to be too much different from the farm in terms of how freestyle it is.
