signal snowboard?

im looking into getting a signalsnowboard ( i love the brand, any reviews on it? ) most likely a Signal OG 159
but i was wondering has anyone owned a Signal board or specifically a Signal OG or ParkRocker?,
ill be spending 75% park and 25% mountain, and im a advanced rider
so its either an OG or a Signal park rocker, is this still rideable on the mountain, cause i know its a park board?

I have a older og, and its a stiffer board. I've read reviews on the new og and its still stiff. Its good for hitting big jumps but isn't a park board. The park rocker is suposed to be on of the softest snowboards made. Check out angrysnowboarder.com he has reviews of both.

The OG is a pipe or freeride monster. You'll most likely hate it in the park.

I would really look at the 2012. They all get a carbon strip, barely stiffer but poppier. Look at the Omni and the Park Zero specifically.

They make a really good stick, I've been happy with my J.O.E. Park from this year.

Ok its decision time, you may read up above what my riding style is

Im looking for a board which ill enjoy in australia (everything happens in australian snow) and maybe oversees (hopefully )

If you're going Signal go with the Park flat but over all go Arbor Blacklist.

So what are your thoughts on the Signal Park Flat on the mountain not just the park, unridable or actually not bad??

The rocker light did just fine around the mountain for me. The Flat will have a little better edge hold and a little quicker response.

Now that they added carbon to it you can get around the mountain fine. It's still more park focused. I will say this though the rocker lite is actually a fun board for general playing around the mountain use while still killing the park. The park rocker though is just a novelty stick in my opinion. I still think for what you're looking at the Blacklist is going to be that happy medium.

Flat will have better edge hold. Personally I think that's what you'll be more stoked on.
