I might add the '10 Kink. I love my '08 and with prorize added for this year it would be my new board, if I needed another park/jib board. But I don't, I have 2.
The Jibstick is actually more of an all park flex if I remember right. Someone here has one though so they'll probably correct me if I'm wrong.
The WWW was once one of the best jib boards ever, it is now pretty much mediocre compared to what others have to offer.
Next years Artifact'85 is also a reeeeally good board. If I needed another rocker killer, I'd be seriously considering it. Rome was one of the few companies that immediately added a pop device to their rockered jib specific board. So they have had the most time to dial it in.
I haven't heard anything much about the Solomander nor do I know anyone that has ridden it. I'd bet its an S.Sanchez with some pop device added to it. Pure speculation but that seems to be the pattern with rockered jib boards at the moment. Take your softest rocker, add some pop in the tips, call it a new board.
I have a Sub-Pop (now the Sub-Zero), but as just a jib board that you are going to destroy in one season this one is a little pricey. But if you can find one of last years or an actual Sub-Pop, then it is one of the funnest jib boards I've ridden. Its my go to spring season board.
That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
