In the last 3 years or so I've been on Burton Custom (tradition camber) didn't care for it to much but it was on the stiff end, Lib Tech Banana Magic (current all mountain board) its also on the stiff end i really like this board but its not that forgiving, I also have a Jones Hovercraft for pow (med-stiff) but I love that board in Pow amazing

In relation to the Banana Magic (in the same size) the ET is a little softer and the Airobic/GW are a lot softer.

I'm actually looking for something softer do you think the GW will be too soft for big jumps ?? Only reason I'm asking is that if it will work well all around then ill get that one, ET is good but it's got twin TBT narrow for jibbing and there are only 2 with the Park TBT and GW takes the cake between them. Also you think I can get away with getting a 151? I'm trying to keep it shorter for park use

Hi again,

No board is perfect at everything. It is always a series of compromises. The difference in TBT width between Park and Twin is subtle. The difference in flex between the ET and GW in pretty significant. The GW will be much more playful for presses, butters etc and will be great for jibbing but will not match the ET or your Lib for big hits.

Going to a 151 on the GW would work for sure but you will again lose some positivity in landing those bigger hits.

Yeah I rather work a little harder on the presses and butters then short myself o the landings, I'll go with the ET

What do you suggest 152 or 154? for park only

152. The 152 is a bit softer than the 154 as well so it will give you a bit of a middle ground. STOKED!

Thank you for all the help, definitely picking up the ET 152

Default Goliath vs Whatever

I currently have an older Goliath that needs to be replaced. I'm debating between getting another Goliath as my all mountain go to stick, but am curious about the Whatever. Am I right to assume that the Whatever it is basically a lower end version of the Goliath?

Not exactly. The Goliath is also stiffer (triax versus biax) gets a sintered base, different insert positions/options and different size options.
