Although the flex ratings help...every company's ratings are different...its all relative.

Just from reading reviews and posts on the forums a really soft boards are the Nitro Subzero/Subpop and Signal Park Rocker. From what i've read, both are these are quite noodley...

hmmm in that case I think you'll really like the Hero or the Banana. Especially the camber between the bindings will make it easier to butter, press, etc and it's super soft

You can find the Hero for pretty good discount right now too

Skate banana, just because its already flexed doesnt make it flexy.
I think most rockers have a medium flex in order not to lose too much pop.

Rome artifacts are super soft. no "stringers" in them.
