Arrow New board help.

I'm looking at buying a new board. I want a strictly terrain park board. I will be doing rails and jumps but more rails than jumps. And I want the board to be pretty flexible, so I can jib, and butter, etc.
2 boards I am currently looking at are the

Rome artifact
&
Libtech skate banana

Gimme your take on Wich one I should choose or help me out and suggest a completley diff board.

theyre both geared toward park and jibbing. assume the artifact is reverse camber. they will be some what similar with exception of mtx , and probably 100$.

The Artifact is much more of a Jib board. SUPER soft.

I've heard a lot of good things about Ride Kink and K2 Parkstar - more so Parkstar for your purposes. I chose the Machete instead of the Parkstar because I like jumping more than jibbing. From reviews it sounded like Parkstar will kill it in the park rails.

ride kink, K2 WWW, capita horrorscope, arbor draft. those are all great jib boards that are flat or rockered the rome artifact is a normal camber i think.

the banana will take you other places on the mountain better than any of those though
