Question K2 WWW, Arbor Draft, or Rome Postermania?

I'm trying to decide between these three boards. Which would be best for not only park but also cruising the whole mountain and going fast? Also, what size should I get (I am 5'5" and 135 pounds)?

Thanks

Well the Weapon and Draft are jibsticks. The Poster is barely stiff enough to not be a jibstick. Not the best options for going fast and cruising the mountain.

Well I will still be spending most of my time jibbing and messing around at fairly slow speeds but i want the ability to go at decent speeds occasionally without being totally out of control.

Well I can bomb on a downsized jibstick. Depends on how good you are. Of those go for the Weapon. But take a look at the Signal Rocker Light for 2012. Close to as soft as the WWW but with carbon down the middle for some snap. It's about as soft as I'd go and keep it fun outside park jibs.

Does the signal park rocker light have as an aggressive rocker as last years model? If so, I don't think it is what I'm looking for...

This year they are doing the Park, Park Flat, Rocker Light, and Rocker. The Rocker light is on par with like FK or lowrize. Its the "light" version of their Rocker.

I would indeed. It's one of my favorite boards for 2012.

50 or 52. Bigger will be a little more stable and smaller will be easier to whip around and more fun on jibs.


I would probably get the 152
