Question Parkstar vs. WWW vs. WWW Rocker

Alright, narrowed down.

All 3 are on sale.

I am an all mountain rider, and I am DEFINATELY moving my focus on the park.

I own a K2 Illusion that I will keep but it will be a backup.

What are the pro's and cons?

Also, Rocker vs. the regular WWW, what kind of a difference would I notice?

I know they are all extremely well reviewed boards, so thanks for the help.

Parkstar is for you. It is park board which is better for jumps in park and can handle allmountain/jibs too.
WWW is just for park, focused on jibs and small jumps. Difference between regular cambered WWW and rockered WWW u will feel on pop and how easy u can catch your edge. Camber has more pop , but u can catch your edge easily. Rocker is more playfull, easy to press but lacks in pop a little bit compared to camber and ofcourse u wont get that 'pop' in turns with rocker. But then again it up to you what u like

Ya, I was definately leaning more towards the Parkstar.

I am looking at getting a 157 wide parkstar, I weigh 160 lbs.

My current board is a 163, but that was a gift, and it was sized based on my height. (I understand height is much less of an issue than weight, but if it matters I am 6'3") Is that too much of a downsize, to go from a 163 to a 157? will it make it unstable?

I'd agree with the parkstar. However, IMO, I'd go smaller than a 157. I have 10lbs on you and I ride a 152 Darkstar. Granted the parkstar may be a little more flexy, but I don't believe it's that much more. BTW, what is your boot size?

Size 14 I believe, so I will be getting a wide.
And really? Do you have any problems riding a 152? That's 9cm shorter than I'm used to, I never would have thought to go that small

I was really looking at the 157, the 152 just seems like it would be way too small to me. And I'm not lookin to "butter around" all day, I wanna charge it and send it on some 50 footers...(I've hit a 50 once)

Yeah, you'll need a wide with a 14 boot. And yes, really. I take my board from park to peak without any issues. Granted, I've never taken this board into pow country, but I don't get a lot of that out in the east coast.

I'm in Cali, and I'm sorry you're "not in pow country". So i think ill try to find a 155, or if all else fails, go with the 157.
