Hey guy's
Cant decide between Arbor's Blacklist and Rides DH2 2012(possibly their limited edition when it comes out). Any ideas? It will be my first rocker but i have been riding for awhile.

2 completely different shapes and rides when they get on snow. Dh2 especially the limited will have more pop and hold an edge more like a traditional board. The Blacklist is center reverse with grip tech that makes it ride like a skateboard. I'll say this though out of the hundreds of boards I've ridden the Blacklist is my favorite board to date and is what I am riding right now.

What kind of bindings do you have on it? Is the center reverse camber easy to get used too and is it a true all mountain rocker?

Everything rides different I typically hate center reverse but Arbor has it done right to where I actually dig it. I'm rocking 2012 390 bosses on it with the 2.0 cants and it's solid.

There is a good chance the DH2 will have more pop than nearly everything if not everything else on the market. It's a stiffer park deck made for boosting giant kickers in the park or out of bounds.

The Blacklist is definitely one of the funnest boards in bounds I have ever ridden. Great pop and snap while remaining playful in the tips. Steers between the feet but grips well with System Griptech. Really really well built.

Yeah both boards are sick. still not sure though. What do you guys think of hybrids rocker-camber-rocker? Im 60% all mount no limit 40% park jumps+rails. Can't test any boards where am at...just want to make the right choice before i give "The House" all my money.

First of all, don't buy from the house. They are bargain basement trash. Where do you live? Any local shops? If not try onlines like Evo, Milo, Moda3... online shops that actually have brick and mortar locations too.

For that breakdown look at the Westmark over the Blacklist, its a little stiffer, a little more pop and will be quicker edge to edge being that it's normal width instead of midwide. You might also really like a Signal Omni or Flow Era.
