Hehe yeah I know there's a 1 unit of measure difference but I'm hoping for a reply from someone who has tested them both to find out how much of a difference that is...

I was set on a Fun Kink but I found a good deal on a used Whatever on eBay and that's why im wondering which to buy.

Is it softer? Looking for something that might be more of a softer extreme contrasting my billy goat. If that's the case im ordering a 2013 bataleon et and some 2013 flux tt30's. Shit, im going to have to work my ass of.

Hi Blunted,

I am sticking with my original suggestion:

The Goliath 161 would be my top choice for you. Such a fun board for what you are looking for and a great fit for your specs. STOKED!

Hey I'm looking for mainly a jib board. I don't hit many jumps and if I do they're under 40 feet. I was looking thinking about the Disaster or the Whatever. Im 6'1 and 160 and a size 9 boot. What do you think?

Compared it to billy goat it would be an all mtn board just like goliath. Im looking at something that can also jib, but then again any board can jib. Does it matter if i pick up a et 2013, i really like graphics... :P <- NEWB comment.

both the goliath a ET are about the same stiffness, but I'm pretty sure the shorter board will flex more under equal weight...correct me if I'm wrong

And i am probably going with 157 et 2013 or i might go with 161 goliath but most likely et, what bindings should i pair it up with? Ether switchback binding because of padding even tough it looks cheap or flux tt30.
