Cheap park stick?

Hey guys, I'm contemplating the idea of picking up a a park only stick for next season. Last year was my first year riding any park (I've been riding for 10 years though) and plan on doing a lot more park the next season. I don't really need anything crazy, I'm just looking for a cheap(er) board that would be an overall decent park stick. Any suggestions?

I've got a Nitro Rook 154 that I'd sell. It's got 2 days (no rails or boxes) on it, and looks virtually brand new. I was going to wait and sell it in the fall when demand is up, but if you're interested, and that size works for you, I'd sell for $250 shipped. Can send/upload pics if you want.

Alright so I've been doing a little looking around and seen some decent prices. The K2 WWW, Ride Kink, and Capita Stairmaster are all currently on my list.

Which of these would be best for an all around newbie park stick? Jumps are no problem, but I'm definitely a newbie when it comes to jibbing and want a board that would be easy on me for that. Do I sacrifice pop and go for a rocketed board that would be more forgiving on rails and boxes?

Well If you can afford to get a 2011 board the Kink for this year has prorize. It is the most minimal rocker on the market and should minimize you loss of pop but make jibbing easier. Its The Kink is one of my favorite boards, slimewalls work. If you want something cheaper, aka last year, then I would look into the Nitro Swindle. It has zero camber meaning you don't have to fight camber to press on boxes, but you don't get rocker washout on jumps since your whole edge is still down. Its a great board

Just posting this link since I happened to remember reading the review of the Swindle. I'm not the most knowledgable about park boards so I'll stay out of this one beyond that.
