Default Lobster Jib Board?

What do you guys think of the new 2011-2012 Lobster Jib board? I'm looking to get it with a pair of union contacts. LOBSTER :: THE JIBBAORD

If I remember right the Jib is a softer FunKink and the Park is a softer ET.

Just get an Airobic?

I know its a Bataleon copy (especially since its made by the same people in the same factory)The main thing is that I can ride the Lobster Jib in a 144 and thats the only ib board I could find that I can ride that short.

Edit- I also just found out that both boards cost the exact same amount of money.

135 pounds and I'm 5"9 really I should ride like a 147cm but most boards i cant ride that short because of my size 11.5 boot. The Lobster Jib is the only board I can actually ride that short. Also If I was gonna "proper: size and get the 148 than I would still go with the Lobster vs the Bataleon since they are the same board at the same price and it would just be a looks thing.

I'm almost pretty sure the Lobster Jib has the same press and design as the Disaster, and the Park is the same as the ET maybe softer.. cant remember where I read that though.

Do not buy a 144. Hell at your weight learn to jib for real and don't drop below 150.

I've only got 10lbs on you and I'm on a 152 for most of my jibbing now.

Just get the 151, it's plenty soft and that way you don't have something that's only useful on jibs.

I currently ride a Burton Hero 152 for jibbing (Yeah I know Burton sucks I got it when I first started) and I cant press it with anywhere near as much ease as my friends Rome Artifact 144 or his Horoscope FK 149. The longest Id want to go would be the 148 and I still wanna try the 144 even more.

Now I get it, you never learned how to press. Its a press, not a lean. Start there.

The Hero of past was a jibstick. It's got squeezebox now making it a solid choice for all park goodness. It's a Burton I endorse.

Get what you want, people don't seem to want to listen to me when I give them advice on jibsticks here. I basically hit jumps just to know how a board jumps, other than that I jib.

If you're really worried about all this, get a 152 Nitro Subzero or Signal Park Rocker. If you can't jib those, quit or go demo a cambered board till you learn to press that. Then you also have a board that is capable of cruising the mountain or hitting pow if the occasion rises. Recently been on the Rocker in that size, surprisingly rideable for that crazy rocker. If you're on a small hill most your days this thing is a blast.

If you're dead set on sub 150, do not go to the 144. That will negatively effect your jibbing as you will have no nose or tail to balance on.
