So I am debating between four boards now and would like some opinions. I am looking at:

Signal Rocker 154cm
Signal Rocker Light 152cm
Bataleon Disaster 148cm
Bataleon Airobic 151cm

Considering I am using the board for buttering and small michigan slopes which would be the best fit for me? I realize some of the choices have better size options but these are what are left at the store and they are significantly discounted. I am 6' and 135lbs. Thanks for the help everyone!

a board for buttering sounds so wrong. will you be doing anything else be side sliding around on the nose or tail of your board?
plan on doing any rails? or jumps?

i personally didnt like battaleons because they seem bubbly and unstable while olliing. ( which by what youre looking for wouldnt apply) But the board is cambered making stylish butters a tiddly bit more difficult.

I havent ridden the "revamped" signal park rocker.... but when i did it was so rockered it looked broken. its almost too rockered. theyve added some strength to the core to help support it... but will still have about zero pop.

The rocker light has less rocker and looks to be more versatile if you ever wanna let it run.

my 2 pennies.

Ya I do the jumps and rails and jibs but the jumps don't get bigger than 10 footers so those aren't reallly a concern. I just want a board that I can improve my ground tricks with and mess around on when I don't want to tear up my other board

Durability is another quality im looking for which is why I was lead to the bataleons I heard they don't chips as easily and are very durable in the park
