Darkstar or Parkstar?

Heavily doubting between both of em. Parkstar seems to fit my requirements of a jibstick that does powder good too a bit better, but the Darkstar is also a very good board that's a bit more all rounded.

Which one?
Also, which bindings do you recommend with them?

I didn't like the rocker on the parkstar and preferred the darkstar much more. But the whole rocker thing is really personal preference.

I say the darkstar. I rode it last year for a little while and thought it was a great freestyle park oriented board that could handle all the steeps I could throw at it. Reverse camber boards ride loose so I'm not sure it'd be able to hold up to everything you'd want it to.

that's what i'm looking at getting as long as the shop i'm getting them from doesn't jack up the price too much like they usually do. BA seems to really like the believer with the flatline tech, and what's sold me is that it's more of a loose rocker feeling, with more edge hold of a cambered board
