Dilemma ( which setup for freestyle jibbing, buttering & pop for 360's) and still all

Im going to buy a park board next year when im going on a season.

Now the dilemma is what i should buy this year?

A freestyle board that is very good for jibbing, buttering and has a good pop for 360's and still its "ok" all mountain, but most importing is that it is flexible

I have looked at some setups

Never Summer SL-R '10 with Union Bindings

Burton Fix with Burton ( Exile,Mission or Cartel) ?

Bataleon Twin with Union Bindings

Do you have any suggestions?

Thanks for your help

theres lots of options, but it depends on your price range. If you spend alot of time in the park like me then a sick board would be a Forum Destroyer Chillydog.. thats the 1 i have and it does me magic. look into it.

Go for the Union Force bindings, there amazing also.

Personally I would pick the Evo-R over the SL-R...but either would work. An "honorable mention" that I have been riding lately that will do what you want is the Capita Indoor Survival FK and it's only 400 bucks new.

The Sierrascope has been getting lots of props. I'd tell you about mine but the wife won't let me get board #4

In my opinion nothing beats a bataleon for park. The tbt is the shit in the park. Go for any of their true twin boards and you will be good. As far as bindings, I ride burton and wouldn't recommend anything else. Not a fan of union, I think they're overhyped.

Thanks

ones that aren't Burton. 390's are a great park-centric binding that can handle the rest of the mountain.

I demo'd most of the 2010 burton bindings. Underwhelming to dangerous is how I'd describe them.
