another new board thread

hello all ive been a long time lurker on here but this is my first time posting

basically im looking to snag one of these end of the season deals on a new board i was looking at the skate banana or the park pickle. i weigh about 150 about 5'10 with a size 10 boot. i ride park about 75% of the time but i love to bomb it down some runs. im not really sure about what size i should get. if it helps any im gonna put on some rome 390 bindings. currently i ride a burton custom 156 09 with 09 mission bindings and i want something a little softer and more park oriented

Thanks

how do you find it riding down runs? is it too soft? i heard its stiffer than the banana. is there any other boards that you could compare to it or recomend

its perfect for anything. it is a little stiffer than a banana which makes it better for riding fast and hitting bigger jumps, but its still very flexy and a great park board. the deeper heelside cut actually does make turning much easier. i also love how its a true asymmetric twin, so you can ride switch no problem (comes in handy in the park).

ive heard people say good things about the stepchild jibstick, but im personally a big fan of lib-tech/gnu boards.
