Signal park rocker

Im looking into buying a Signal park rocker. I spend the vast majority of my time in the park and do runs every now and again. My current board is quite stiff and not for mostly runs and litle park riding. I know the signal is super flexy but i was wondering if anyone on here had any experience on it and how you liked it, etc. Thanks for any input.

My personal take on it: read the last post

Lately, I haven't been riding on it though. I'm having waaayy too much fun on my Evo-R. Rode my signal at the park and I pretty much ate shit on a small kicker. Landed on the tip and wiped out. I had already forgotten how soft it was. Problem is, the evo is so damn forgiving with landing on your tip, it's still very stable.

I like mines, I take it everywhere except jumps. It's soft thats true. As for getting use to it? I got use to this board faster than my Horroscope.

Sorry, fixed the link. I personally think people who bash it haven't even tried it! Its a good board. It will do wonders for you.

irode for a day and it was waaaayyy soft. i way 190 and 6'.. it rode horrible for any thing but a small rail board. it offered no support for buttering or pressing. i was on my face alot.
Granted it could have just taken another day for fine tuning my technique on it. I feel you have to be a light weight to ride it. and your willing to give up jumps and any sort of speed.

also another thing im out east so we have mostly man made snow/icey shit. how does it hold up in these conditions? also i hear it doesnt hold wax for shit. Is there truth to this or is it just about the same as any other board? i know the shit i ride in makes it worse for any waxed board to ride in. thanks for all the input so far.
