Looking for a new board this season!

Hey everyone, im looking to get a new board this year, i ride everything from powder to park to groomers, but im looking for a park specific board right now, when i ride park its probley 80% boxes and rails, and 20% jumps. Ive been reading a lot about the evo, and have been looking at the horrorscope, or maybe the K2 WWW? Just looking for some imput from everybody. thanks! and im 5'8" and weigh 180 and have been riding a 156 as my main board.

Signal Rocker light. All the jibbiness of a Horror but with carbon down the middle for spring and stability for jumps. My personal board for park, mostly jibs, is going to be stiffer than that if that helps. It's a buttery fun board that actually has some spring to it. If not that then a Nitro Swindle, Salomon Drift Rocker, Flow Verve, or a Bataleon FunKink. 154 will do good. Also Signal bases are some of the fastest I've ridden, just the durasurf itself feels faster than other bases.

I'll look into the signal boards too. I've been reading a lot about the arbor boards too lately, the draft and westmark? How do these compare?

That's kinda the one board I still feel is missing from the Arbor lineup. A jib board that can still hit jumps with comfort. Draft I guess can, but that thing is possibly softer than a Nitro SubZero and Signal Rocker. I wouldn't jump it. The Blacklist is one of the best built boards for the whole mountain as your park, but if you're primarily jibbing you might find it just a smidge too much board to get technical. They need like a Draft with a bamboo laminate down the middle. That would be money for us park jib kids.

You would likely love a Blacklist as an all around the mountain fun parky kinda stick, but if you have a quiver going I would steer towards the Park Light. I think it's the perfect jib board, it's still soft like the rest of the market, but that carbon down the middle really makes a difference, I really can't stress that enough.

I'm trying to have two boards in my quiver. A park board for mostly jibs, I hardly ever hit jumps, then an all mountain/pow board. I ride Tahoe so we get those nice spring slushy park days, then the huge dumps like we got this last season.

Well you could go all Signal and get an Omni for you all mountain stick.... Though to be honest my favorite mtn sticks are the Arbor Coda, Flow Drifter, Signal Omni, Forum Destroyer Doubledog, Nitro Team Gullwing, and iiiiiiif you still like Burton the Sherlock is built right.
