Default need advice from those who ride park

Looking to buy a new (strictly) park board. I have a banana that's my all mountain board. And a forum substance but its getting pretty beat up. Im looking for a good park board that can take a beating. There are a couple I've been looking at, but with all the different types now I don't want to invest in a board that isn't what im looking for. Need ur guys help, I ride aggressively and with all the reverse camber, regular camber with rockers, s rocker, p camber ect ext ext... what works and what doesn't?

Thanks

Pretty much any camber can work for park. It's your personal preference. What kind do you want?

Buy a used board and you can beat the shit out of it for cheap. its usually kinda hard to find a good condition used park board for sale, but who knows maybe you'll get lucky.

For durability try Ride. If you really ride as aggressively as you're putting forth check the Buckwild. If more rails the Kink.

The banana is fun, with reverse camber, awesome for pressing and buttering. But it's almost too playful for rails. It's kinda like a toy. So I wanna get something that is easy to flex and press, but stomps rails. What about a hybrid rocker with camber beneath your feet but rockered nose and tail?

I'm 5'10, 170lb size 10 boot.

Thanks

Anybody have any opinions on the forum double dog? To me it seems like best of both worlds. Regular camber then rockers from bondings to nose and tail.

Ok, on the forum destroyer doubledog I thought it was camber under and between your feet and rocker from bindings to nose and tail? Maybe I was mistaken the two. But the destroyer is the one im looking at.

Thanks

Has anybody had any experience with that kind of set up?

Camrock? Yes. In my experience Signal does it best on the Omni. The Destroyer Doubledog made a good all mountain twin for me, but the un claimed addition of squeezebox made it too stiff in the tips for me to like it as a park board.
