Default NS Revolver/Proto, Vs Ride Dh/Kink

Looking to get a park board in the coming weeks and I am torn between the Never Summer Revolver (Mid wide Evo) Never Summer Proto, Ride Kink, and Ride DH. I do all around park with just as much time on jumps as rails and want something that can handle it all with kickers maxing out at 70 feet. I love all 4 of these boards and would like some second opinion on which one you guys think is best for this style of riding (99% Park, No Powder (since we never have any) and SCREW TRAILS!)

Don't you already have a Ply and an Artifact rocker?

I just demoed a neversummer revolver recently and i did not like it one bit, I currently have a 2011 capita horrorscope 153 and wear a size 12 and i like it better then the revolver. But, if you're going to go off of 50ft and bigger jumps i wouldn't recommend it for that but instead i would recommend a indoor survival fk or the ride kink.

If its about jumps I think this shows the kink can handle it but thank you for the imput.

i havent really looked at that board in the last couple years but last i knew the kink was a straight jib board. i remember my friend being able to fold that thing in half. i guess they beefed it up.

also just because someone takes a board off a big jump doesnt mean its necessarily super stable. i can take my 147 forum manual from 4 years ago off 70 foot jumps and land fine but thats because i land even on my feet. if i were to land even slightly nose or tail heavy itd fold out from under me.

I didn't know you were that good of a rider?

Kink is a jibstick, just cause this whirly bird shmuck wants to huck his meat off 70fts on the Kink doesn't mean its the right board for it. It's not, if you were wondering.

OP, Again I ask: don't you already have a Ply and an Artifact Rocker?

Ride machete would be a better choice than the kink

Yes I do. I just will be coming in to a hefty source of money soon and while most of it will be getting saved I will still have enough left over for myself to spend and all I really want is a new stick or more gear.

if money is no issue, why not the arcade UL as a big jump board, its probly to stiff for jibs though
