I have a Parkstar 157W, it's a great board. I ride it all over the mountain, it handles groomers and powder well and is fun in the park. I get a little chatter at high speed on hardpack but nothing I can't handle.

I liked the 157 Parkstar that I demoed

Fun board. K2's jib rocker is actually quite mellow. It's playful without being too loose. Solid jump board too. I wouldn't say tons of pop, but definitely not a slacker.

Pretty decent on groomers. Not a board for steep and fast runs though. That's expected seeing as even the name suggests that it's a park board lol.

I'm sure that question can start another detune or not detune debate on here.

My opinion is that detuning is for camber boards, and if you want to. I never detune. Then again, I tune my own stuff so I never fully sharpen the tip and tip. Look at the tip/tail contact points, if they look like they need to be detuned, run a file over it a few times.
