Default Should I get a total noodle?????

At the end of last season I went with a buddy that was an instructor who could help me learn how to hit kickers correctly and help me progress on boxes and rails.

My question is should my next board be a noodle. Jibbing was a blast so a noodle fits the bill, but I still want something I can cruise the mountain with my friends.

Told to look at these….
Burton dom
Libtech Nanner
Ride kink
K2 WWW
Capita Stairmaster
Rome artifact
Forum YB

On the other hand I was also recommended… which I was told would be great for kickers, riding the groomers with friends but not so hot on the jibs, and to stiff to butter..

Ride DH
Burton custom x
Rome Agent
Libtech TRS BTX
Gnu Riders Choice BTX
Forum Destroyer

Can anyone out there tell me if the advice I was given about these boards is true because it seems like everyone just talks up the boards they ride. Also will I regret getting a noodle as soon as I leave the park or try to hit something a little bigger as a get more confident on kickers?

If you're looking to hit kickers, I wouldn't recommend a noodle - the board will just fold on you and you will die (kidding, but not). The Agent, DH and Stairmaster and maybe the WWW are my recommendations if you want to go from butters to kickers.

Exactly, so scratch the kickers, get the artifact, and butter that puppy till you get all the chicks and your friends begin envying you.

K2 darkstar instead of weapon, perfect flex for rails and kickers.

WWW is to soft, Id say the DH is a little softer that the Darkstar. The TRS BTX is a stiff puppy, but if you want a stiff board for rails then go for it.

Personally I will take any and all boards into a rail park, whether its a slab of concrete or a noodle. I have fun either way, and I dont really care if I slide off a rail too early

edit: luck for you, I have a Darkstar, Weapon, and TRS BTX all for sale

hey, Ill feel ashamed for it when I can pay my bills, besides who else is selling a darkstar for $150??

and is a darkstar not a board which would be a good all around board? I think it is, Ive ridden it everywhere and it performs everywhere

I was just kidding around...my apologies if it came across the wrong way. And I agree with you whole heartedly about the Darkstar. I agree so much I picked one up in the off season before your "for sale" thread came up.
