Default Bataleon Disaster vs ???

I have been boarding for about 2 years. I currently have a 2012 Ride Highlife UL. Great board but I want to start buttering and understand this can be harder on a stiff board. I like the design of the Bataleon boards so it brought me to the disaster.

Any suggestions? Any other boards or reasons I should not get this board?

Also a side note I hate magne traction so no lib tech etc.

Bataleon boards have tbt which makes them a bit mroe ideal for buttering and jibbing around without catching edges.

Other good jib boards for buttering it up?
Never Summer Evo (my personal suggestion)
Signal Park Rocker
Rome Artifact Rocker
Burton Hate
Salomon Salomonder
Salomon Salvatore Sanchez
Nitro Have
Nitro Subzero
Ride Kink
Never Summer Evo

Never Summer Evo (my personal suggestion) Nah, Better out there for the money
Signal Park Rocker LIGHT, yes
Rome Artifact Rocker Good choice
Burton Hate Too much rocker for center reverse
Salomon Salomonder Better options out there
Salomon Salvatore Sanchez Too basic?
Nitro Have Probably good, haven't ridden
Nitro Subzero Probably too soft
Ride Kink good but very soft

Add a Signal Park Flat, Arbor Westmark, and a Flow Verve and you're good.

I am still leaning toward the Bataleon Disaster. Also for bindings I am looking at Ride Rodeos. Any suggestions here?

The Rodeo is a softish Mid Flexing binding at a 4 out of 10. So not a bad choice. If you want a more natural fit look at some softer bindings. From what I heard Flux RK30's are nice Jib Bindings. I personally run union contacts and really like them for my jib board. Also if what I have read is correct when you put more responsive bindings on a soft jib board they actually transfer MORE energy and flex into the board so that is something to keep in mind but don't quote me on that.

I rode the Disaster with Rodeo's. They'll work, but they aren't the best match. I would say like TT30's or Raiden Zero's.

I havn't ridden the disaster yet, but theres a couple local guys that have them. Just by watching them ride I can tell the board is SOFT. It looks great as a pure butter and rail board, but if you want to hit some jumps and do any freeride with it you should look at the Airobic, Fun Kink, or Whatever, all 3 of these will still be soft enough to easily press on them, airobic will be the easiest. The evil twin works too, but unless you're 190+lbs or already good at buttering I wouldn't reccommend it cuz it's pretty stiff.

Yeah if you want more than just jib get a FunKink or a Whatever.

I'm looking into getting a disaster for a full out jib board and i was just wondering if i should get the 148 or 151? Im about 6 feet tall, 115 lbs, and my boot size is a mens 10. Im currently riding a 2012 Funkink 154 and it works perfect for an all mountain board, but im thinking of the disaster for spring time and when i just shred parks laps all day long.

Damn skinny, get the 151 and gain 30-40lbs, unless you're a chick then get the 148.
