Default butter board

I'm thinking about getting a new board in which I can concentrate on getting better at my butters. I'm looking at the never summer sl-r 155. I'm 5'10" 180. Any other board suggestions that I can get the best pop will be helpful. Thx

i think the evo would be a better choice as it isnt as stiff as the slr

Check out the for sale section. I just posted up a 155 Evo-r because it was too soft for my liking. Im not into doing butters or hitting the park but the board was super flexible and I did a few no problem.

I think some of the other manufacturers would be a better bet for you. Even the softest Neversummer isn't that soft because they are built the be so bulletproof. I would go with something that has the TBT tech from Bataleon or a Park Scoop from Burton. The best board I have ever used for butters though is the Burton ConDom. Every edge on the board is turned up slightly so the whole bottom is convex. Makes the boards more playful and forgiving than you could ever believe. I could literally spin like a helicopter down the hill and it wouldn't catch an edge.

Check it out, its called Freebase. 0 Camber 0 Rocker

I think my problem is I want the best of both worlds. My wife is in the process of learning to board so I've been stick with her on the greens getting bored. That's where I started to play around a bit. Once she gets better I know we'll be doing the groomers more than anything else. I'm not thinking she'll be the type to go into the park so I've been looking for something that can handle the speed and still be sort of a noodle. That's where I came up with going with the sl-r. I don't know maybe I should just get the sl-r and a park board when I can break away from her.

those are at teh opposite ends of teh snowboard spectrum. you wont be able to find a board soft enough to butter and bomb groomers.

I just bought the Arbor Draft 2010....Im learning to do butters and it seemed soft enough. And was still able to hit the rest of the mountain.
