K2 parkstar or www rocker board?

so i ride a redline option 154 and finally got my carving down and finally went on a small box. im feeling more confident and want to get into the park. i like the buttering style and boxes not really into rails (chicken) haha.also would like to do some mountain runs (i'll still be keeping my option board) but i've been looking at a K2 parkstar and the world wide weapon rocker boards. which one would be a better choice?pros?cons?

im 5'9 185 give or take a few. size 10.5 in k2 darkos.

sorry all this board stuff is rocket science to me.

any other rocker boards in the price range you suggest?

i rode the parkstar and wasnt incredibly impressed. if you want something easy and super fun to ride and will make stuff so much easier and maybe even make you want to hit sum jumps, even if your "to old" is a lib tech rocker, like a skate banana or a box scratcher. I had so much fun on those boards and liked them more than the parkstar, cant say anything bout the WWW thu

Not sure if they are all sold out on the website, but the Capita Sierrascope sounds perfect for you. Really easy to butter around and press with the flat-kick rocker, and still has a surprising amount of pop and edge hold on icier terrain.

i have the parkstar and it is an all around great board.

if u want to have a lot of fun, go w/ WWW. it is just flat out easy to maneuver and very playful. the downside is that it will chatter when you are going fast downhill... especially on blacks

if you want a bit of a in between parkstar and www. definitely try the sierrascope. it is a beast of a board that does everything well but still not lose the fun factor.

If they are still available, get the Sierrascope. Last I saw, they were on sale and one hell of a bargain. It'll do everything you're looking for.

However, the Parkstar is probably more of what you're looking for in a board. You can press it, hit boxes, rails and kickers and when you're done in the park, bomb down some runs. The WWW is also a great board if you're just looking to stay in the park. I've never hit a big jump with a WWW, but given it's pretty soft, I'd be a little concerned about larger jumps.
