Default Parkstar or WWW

Im looking to get a new board and my local shop has both the parkstar and WWW for a good price. Im 5'11 170lbs with a size 10 boot. Id consider myself a beginner/itermediate rider havent done a whole lot of park but want to slowly get into it. I want a board that i can do the groomers go into trees basically an all mountain board that i can do butters and presses with. the shop has a parkstar in a 155cm and the WWW in both a 152 and 155...which board and size would you suggest for me?

I use the parkstar outside the park 80% of the time on the trees and all mtn kickers. I love how it is forgiving and stiff enough I don't feel like the board will fly out from under me when go so fast my board starts to chatter. The WWW is a jib machine but if you want to go that way.

this type of decision is a lot of personal preference... you will be able to butter a parkstar if you know how to butter. What is your current board? and do you like the flex? I personally like softer boards mostly cause i'm only 140 lbs an 6ft, so i can't easily flex stiffer boards, but with your weight i would go with the parkstar mainly because i am a fan of the sintered base. It is a little more upkeep, but the added speed is a big bonus in my book.

right now i have 159 gabe taylor and it feels too stiff and long...no im not great at butters and thats why i want one of these boards so i can work on it i was thinking around the 155 range cause of my weight...i really like the WWW but im nervous that it wont be good for all mountain plus idk what size id do on the www 155 or 152 cause they say you can go smaller with those and both are rated 120-200lbs. i just want something i can jump on, butter and ride everywhere, and not wash out.
