Butter Board?

Michigan rider so there are no hills where I really have to try to get down. I can't reach speeds where stability is too big of a factor with how small the hills are. So I am looking for a board a little more playful than my arbor westmark. Something to ride on slow groomer days when I don't want to scratch up the westmark. Is the NS Evo a good butter board or am I headed in the wrong direction?

Vote for my tshirt design this week! Help me win 2 Grand!

I can't really speak to the Evo, but the Signal Rocker Lite looks like a nice butter board. Keep in mind I haven't ridden it, but it's probably a little better at buttering than the Evo - though worse suited for jumps.

If its a board for when you don't want to scratch your good one, don't get something MORE expensive...

I would look at the Rocker Light for sure, the Park Flat, or a Bataleon Disaster.

Though after riding it for a while at High, the Signal Rocker is seriously the only board I'd want if I moved to Ohio or Michigan or some shit and only had tiny hills to hit. It's way more versatile that you'd think and in my opinion is the best board for small mountain.

I endorse the Signal Rocker.

Out of curiosity - why the rocker over the rocker lite? Is that much rocker necessary?

That much rocker isn't even necessary in deep low pitch powder slopes.

But it's just fun as hell to play around on.

Bataleon Disaster will butter insanely well and probably better than anything else out there.

The Evo isn't what I would really consider "buttery". Though, I almost bought a K2 WWW for its butter effect.

If you're looking for a board that butter well without having to worry about damaging your board, go with Omatic. Great boards at a good price point lately. Also, if you get the BS base, it's a pretty good board to mess around on

Wow, Omatic has a sick price point. Do you ride their boards? How's the durability?

edited : they have a myspace page, lol :P

I love how, when you go to their website, every board they have is exactly the same flex. Middle.
