Great,

A few notes.

The RX is a directional twin while Park Pickle and Carbon Credit are true twins. That is a noticeable difference and we should find out a little more about the riding that you want to do.

Rocker boards have less contact length that cambered boards of the same length. To many, they already feel "shorter" than a similar cambered board in the same length.

PS: You are looking at an amazing group of decks so all we need to do is narrow down to the best model for your specific needs and choose the perfect size.

STOKED!

Thank you Wiredsport!...I appreciate all your input. i think I'm going for the arbor element rx 155 cm..and paired with a union contact pro bindings. Based on my understanding of your post, contact points on the rockers are decreased compared to the regular cambers and with that in mind, a 155cm rocketed board will be a good choice for me. This choice of board will probably be perfect for my weight and size, and still be able to achieve my need of manuevarbility and control, speed and lightness and stability of ride....I hope i'm making sense and hopefully i'm right with my analysis and decision.

thank you very much again!

That is a great do it all board for your specs. Your understanding of the reduced contact length on rocker boards is correct. Have a great time on your new ride.

Hi,

Were you asking about the two specific boards above or about all of the profiles in general?

Thanks

We greatly prefer to suggest specific models as there are exceptions to this but there are awesome boards for you in all three of the following profiles:
  • Camber Rocker Camber (EC2, Mustache, Gullwing, etc)
  • Rocker Camber Rocker (Pop Cam, Camber with lifted contact points)
  • Camber
