for you park riders

Im a big dude. 250 lbs. 6 foot. size 12 boot.

im wanting a park board. now saying that, the place i go to has a shitty park...

Im wanting something that I can butter fairly easily. hit a few rails and the such, and still get down the mountain without getting too chattery

I was looking at the Sierra Stunt -159w, they say this is quite the flexible board (i think a 3 rating)

Would this board be too soft for my big ass or would I be alright?

a 159 that soft should be ok. Im 250 also and i ride a 157 with a stiffness rating of about 5. I can butter ok with it. Not great, but just ok. I really like it with jumps. It really poppy. Yours will probably be less poppy and more flexible for butters and jibs

would the 157 be a noodle?

Ride Machete or DH2 either one comes in wide, the machete is a bit softer than the DH2 and has a bit more rocker. I'm around 210 lbs with 11.5 boots and ride a 159W, this is kind of my do it all stick. It's super poppy and quite stable at speed, the rocker also offers some good float in the pow even with a centered stance. The flex rating according to ride is a 7 while the Machete is a 5, they are both really similar boards with the Machete being on the softer side with a bit less pop and more rocker.
