Input Needed on an 09 Bataleon Fun Kink
Just copped me a nice WWW rocker, and now am looking for an all mountain board, something that I can still take to the park, but also use on the blues/blks. I was hoping anyone here would have any info on the Bataleon Fun Kink. After searching through some threads, it seems to be more of a park-oriented board, because of it's soft flex. I'm confused though, the board is listed to be a directional twin - my understanding that directional twins are designed more for all mountain riding?
There was actually one person from the bataleon threads (crap, forgot his name) that was saying that this board kills it all over the mountain, but I just can't see that happening according to it's flex meter reading on Bataleon's site, as a matter of fact, I think the fun kink is one of Bataleon's softest boards...
I'm still thinking about getting it, but was hoping if more people had some experience with this board. My main concerns are:
1. How well does it hold on edge while carving, esp in hardpack / icy conditions
2. Will the flex cause this board to chatter in choppy conditions?
2. I'm 6'0", 165 lbs, is a 157 too long for me, esp for boxes or rails in the park?
Sorry for the lengthy post, thanks in advance for any advice.
