Question Bataleon ET vs. Signal Omni vs. Yes TDF

Looking for a playful freestyle deck that I can end a run with a jaunt in the park.

Shortlist:
2012 Bataleon Evil Twin 157: TBT intrigues me with camber profile.
2012 Signal Omni 156: Local manufacturer and the wavelength profile looks good for what I'm looking for though not sure how flex is relative to other choices.
2012 Yes TDF 157: Heard good and not so good about Camrock. This deck could double as wall art. LOL

Any personal experience with the tech and preferences?

Thanks.

Knowing Signal pretty well I would actually suggest the Park Flat over the Omni. The Omni is a pretty beefy board now. Last year it was a great do anything board and pretty playful in the tips. Its stiffer now with better glass and now carbon. Despite what the site now says, the Park Flat is Triax top and bottom with carbon stringer tip to tail. Better option than the Omni for peak to park.

So if you go with that instead of the Omni, it gets my vote. Otherwise get the ET.

Thanks. Yeah, if the Omni is stiffer then it's getting redundant with the Heritage I have. I think I'll stick to the original plan of the ET.

Apparently judging by the votes, the earwax infused door is going to be the hot deck this season.

I have an older ET and I love it. I think they have stiffened them up recently and made them more all-mountain oriented, but it should still be good for the park.

I have a 152 2012 ET Artists Edition. I use it as an all mountain board. It is reasonably stiff as i thought it would be softer than it turned out to be but i still love it. Takes me a lot of effort to do presses but that could just be because im a terrible rider.

Decided to get a Bataleon Disaster for Mt High and Bear Mountain...shorter runs and more park features/jumps to make an old ass of myself. If I like TBT, I'll pick up an ET later in the season.

I like that the TDF has a narrow waist, but I wish it came in a bigger size.
