Cool Suggestions fs think!or park oriented board

I've been riding an uninc 58 and started doing park this season. As much as I love my current board, I feel its a bit heavy for me to swing around and stiffer to butter/jib with it, as I'm 165# and 5'10'

So I am looking for a board that can handle the mountain but is park oriented.

Been looking around and I thought of

skate banana (too noodly?)
dc ply (idk how the new tech is..)
indoor FK
sierrascope

Open to sugestions and wanna know what you guys think!

skate banana is actually med stiff, but is to expensive for what you get.

The sierrascope is probably your best bet for the ones you listed.

I suggest the Signal park flat; light, strong, has a sintered base, and is nice and flexible for the park but the flat camber will hold up better than the rocker for the rest of the hill. Or the signal omni; better for the mountain but still soft enough for park.

I cant speak on the other boards but I ride a PLY and love it for everything. Park, Trails, Buttering, ect. It kills it all for me.

Try the GNU Park Pickle true twin, reverse camber board. It's a little pricey but great in the park and a little chatter at high speeds.
