Default shredders: suggest me a park stick

right now i ride a 09 152cm skate banana and i love it but ive had it for 2 seasons now and i think its about time to move on to a better board. i want to ride something a little shorter, maybe a 149 or even a 147, but i still want it to kill park features. is there anything out there similar to a banana but maybe a little stiffer?

Capita horrorscope if your more or less into jibbing, indoor survival for more all around park.

Depends on the features you wanna hit. More jibs, look at the Signal Park and CAPiTA Green Machine FK. If you want to jump more than look at the Signal Omni, Omatic ExtrTxtr, CAPiTA Inoor FK, or an Arbor Coda.

If you go stiffer than the Banana and smaller than what you have it will feel dumb. For a jib oriented board if you want a 148ish size you better weigh like 120lbs. I weigh 140 and the smallest I go is my Signal 150 J.O.E.. If the 152 skate was a good size then don't drop below 150 for jibs and stay at or above 152 for all park/jumps.

I didn't like the new UrbanFK. It felt too much like banana or V-rocker. Too loose in between the feet. I really suggest the Green Machine FK over that. Still really easy to press but you get more pop out of it. You can get to a point with the Horror of just wanting more board, that is a lot less likely to happen with the GM.
