Skate Naner, Parkstar, or ET

Well I tried posting in 2 other threads, but got no answers. My current board is a WWW rocker and Im looking for something just a bit stiffer. I've been looking at mainly the skate banana and parkstar, but also the Evil Twin. I will mostly be riding park and a little pipe. Where do these boards rate in terms of flex?

I'd probably put the Naner and Parkstar in the same category and the ET at a little stiffer.

If you want a board for park and a little pipe, why not look at the Believer? You already have a sick jib board, get a really good jump and pipe board...

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

Well Im not really a fan of changing my setup. The believer sounds great, but when I go snowboarding I hit jibs every time. So basically I'm just looking for something that will hold up better around the rest of the mountain as well. My WWW will probably be used for backyard jib sessions and late/early season days when I get a new board.

no one can qualify the flex for you. how do you accurately relate flex? it might feel soft to me or i might be just used to stiff boards. obviously none of those boards is marketed like a jib noodle so you know they will do better outside of the park, right?

Im not saying to tell me exactly where these boards are in flex. I got my answer in the last post when he said parkstar and banana are similar.

Banana is reverse camber so it's between the feet with flat tips, k2's is flat between the feet and rockered at the tips. 2 entirely different rides.

Angry Snowboarder Because someone has to call it how they see it!

Yes I know. I guess I could demo a skate banana in a 152 from the grese bus. I would get a 148 if I got a banana.
