Default slimewalls

Is anyone on a Ride board right now with slimewalls? I have heard mixed things about them. Either they are the most forgiving thing for park riding or they arenít durable enough to stand up to jibbing and your edges get really screwed up because your sidewalls are softer.

Any input would be helpful because I am thinking about the DH, as well as like ten other boards. To many choices.

It's not a gimmic rather than blowing out the sidwall they crack the edge in a minimal matter. makes things far easier to keep riding. I'm drunk as fuck but I can tell you sliemawll chances the way the board rides it's druable but it haves give ans take.
