looking for a butter board that can still do all mountain.

My current setup is a never summer sl and targa bindings. I love the setup but now looking for a butter board, but one that can still all mountain and won't suck too much at speed which for me would be between 30-40 mph

I can get up to around 60mph on my Signal J.O.E. as long as I'm not leaving the ground all that much.

Look at mid level park boards. Arbor Westmark, Signal Omni, CAPiTA Green Machine FK, or a Bataleon ET or wait for 2012 and get the Whatever.

I don't think there's really such a thing that is designed for both. If you get an "all-mountain" board, you can do butters with it to a certain extent, but it's not a "butter board". If you get a "butter board", it will suck every where else...especially at those speeds. Unless you are talking about just fresh pow that's untouched, I guess.

This.

I have a SL as my all mountain and I have a Nitro SubPop for a butter board. The SL doesnt do the flatland stuff as well and the SubPop is fun on the greens and easier blues but is just about useless on the blacks or anything skied off.

has anyone ridden an arbor westmark and NS evo board? Wondering which board has more flex and is easier to butter? From other reviews sounds like both boards can at least handle most of the mountain without sucking too much.

Fairly similar. The Evo is a bit softer but the Westmark is continuous rocker.

I like the Westmark better.

at the risk of sounding like a dumbass, so the westmark's continuous rocker shape makes it easier to butter even tho the evo is softer? And I assume the stiffer westmark also makes it's better around the rest of the mtn?
