Not really any lighter than anything else, not really heavier either.

It's just that the Fastplant rides about as good as the Westmark if not a little less playful, but its $80 more.

The Signal Rocker Light fits in between the Westmark and Draft and has a more durable sintered base.

Exactly what i mean. Probably a little more towards the Westmark as the Rocker Light is completely jumpable and the Draft really isn't.

Disregard. That whole video blog is horse shit. First off the take grip into account for a JIB board. No one cares. And now they have some dude carpet flex testing boards, which says nothing.

I've ridden most of those boards in king of jib, they suck at picking.

Ok. Alright, but you said the k2 fastplant rides the same as the arbor boards? And i heard from reviews the k2 www isn't good when going fast.

Stepchild Jibstick
Forum Scallywag
Signal Park
K2 Fastplant
Haven't checked out the salomon drift rocker yet
arbor westmark

what do you think? this is my list. and what's the difference between flat and boards with camber underneath the bindings?

I said the Fastplant rides similar, its a bit stiffer and a bit less playful but they gave me similar snap and similar general feel. Westmark grips better.. The WWW is more comparable to the Draft.

Good list, but the Scallywag was mediocre at best.

And remember the Signal comes in Flat as well and then there's the Rocker Light.
