Thumbs up Groundtricking board

Hi there!

I have to decide for a new board and I hope you can help me to figure out which one to purchase.
My Riding style changed during this season because of an injury. So now I look for a board which handles groundtrick with ease. I think of rockershape and a little bit softer for butters but also good enough to handle ollies and nollies.
I used to ride my my Nitro T1 153 + Rome 390 (both 08/09) for park.

Now I need a new one to have fun on slopes with ollies and butters. Should also handle some jibs in the park. The Rome Garage Rocker 152 already cought my attention. Cheap = nice! And also did the Forum Youndblood chillydog and contract 152.

So do you have any experiences with these boards?
Or/And can you give me any futher suggestions?

Thanks in advance,
Greetings from Munich!

I personally have a Capita horrorscope and i recommend them definately for buttering, jibs, and anything else you can think of and they are cheap for how good they are, and they are pretty wide too. I have size 13 boots and didnt even need to get the wide board

Try a Signal Park Rocker. That thing is a noodle, so it makes buttering easy.

If you're just going to do ground tricks and jibs, capita horrorscope, burton whammy bar,signal park rocker, rome artifact rocker come to mind but the boards you listed are also good options

Honestly I ate poo too many times trying to butter a Park rocker. The Park is plenty soft, that over the Rocker. Or wait for the 2012 Rocker Lite.

Just get a decent reverse camber softer board. They all butter. Don't buy a "butter" board.

Get something like a Kink, Bataleon ET (tbt is super butterific), Forum Destroyer Chili, Arbor Westmark, or a Nitro Swindle.

Also, Destroyer chilis are softer than Youngblood chilis.

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

Thanks for all your replies.
Seems like there are too many boards out there which are good enough for my preferences.
So probably i will go for the cheapest one.

@Mysticfalcon:

This isn't a normal Tailpress, is it? What are you doing there?
If thats a tailpress then that board is a mad noodle!
No offense, but was taht picture taken just before a bail? :P

No bail there. That board is what I call my wonder noodle. It is super floppy. It actually rides pretty well in the pow too. Because its so soft you can keep the nose up super easy. Just dont try to take id town an icy black run.
