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.

Tell the truth, even if it leads to your death. - For the truth will set you free.

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
