Default What is the best rocker Snowboard?

I am looking to buy a snowboard, I have been snowboard for about 3 years going on average 4 times a year to Boyne mi and places in Ohio (no powder) I love going fast down hills and hitting medium sized jumps but recently I've gotten bored of that, so I have been in the park. Especially, at the small hills that I go to. I also want to try to make my run longer and try buttering and ride the edges of the run. Although, I have a stiff camber board right now from 5150 that really doesn't do the job. To sum it up I think I am looking for a flexy park board (probably rocker?) that can still do all mountain stuff. I weigh 135lb and 5'9" I am looking for maybe a old version of a board in order to stay in price range around $200

some of the boards I am looking at is
Signal Park Series Camber Snowboard 2011(last years version)
2011 K2 WWW ROCKER SNOWBOARD
Burton clash 2012(can get for $199)

also Im stupid but when do the 2013 boards come out

New boards come out around Sept. in the northern hemisphere. At your size/weight range I'd go no bigger than around 154 (smaller if you want to jib more).

Check out Rome Postermania
I ride an Artifact Rocker...its very buttery and is made for park...but I use it as an all mountain, since the mountain i go to isnt too big either and it does the job just fine...as long as theres no heavy powder

Of the boards you listed I'd recommend the WWW, probably in a 147 or 151. It's a big change from what you have and plenty soft so you can have a lot of fun buttering.

Artifact rocker. But I would keep the Signal in there too... sure its "camber" but in the smaller sizes its pretty damn close to flat. My 150 with bindings and boots in zero's out.

That is a great option as you get a better sintered base that's faster and takes a beating better than any of the others.

Shop for a 148 or the 150.
