Default Park Board

Hey guys I need help finding an 2010 Park Board. Currently I'm riding a Burton Custom 162W but I'm looking to get another board strictly for the park. Something that will lock onto rail and press easily but still be able to hit large jumps, spin well, and be forgiving. Im 6'1" and about 195-200 lbs W/ size 13 feet. I was thinking a 159W. One board I had in mind was the Never Summer Revolver. Could anyone give me any advice on a good balanced park. Also it would help if It was still available and on sale. Thanks

Capita stairmasters are pretty sick. I've been riding one this season and i love it. It's got a 152W and 156W if that's what you need, then they've got regular sizes aswell. I'd check it out

I think the Revolver would be a great choice. For pure park, you may want to go a little smaller than 159.

It just depends. If you're all about rails, hell you could go all the way down to 153. I think a 156 would be a really good all around park board for you.

I'm 5'11" 180 and I ride a 158 Evo-R and the Revolver is a just a wide version of the Evo. I use it as an all around board, but if I had bought it new at full retail, I would've gone 155. I went with the 158 because I got it at 50% off. For 50% off, I'll deal with an extra 3cm!

If you're looking for a board for rails first and foremost and then all other features afterwards, IMO, I wouldn't want to drop the money on the Revolver. Not that it's not a great board but a rail board, to me, is a throw away board because it'll get wrecked over a season. However, if you're looking for a park board where you'll hit a couple of rails here and there, then you can't go wrong with the Revolver. Again, this is just from my broke a$$ point of view
