Default Looking 4 new stick

Well, I'm a newer boarder, currently riding a GNU Carbon Credit. I love this board but I'm looking to get a more flexible park oriented board. The CC seems pretty stiff to me. (162W... I'm 6'2" 220 lbs)

Looking for a very flexible rocker. I've been keeping my eye on the Rome Artifact as I've heard a lot of good things about it. Although, I really love GNU/Mervin as a company and the quality of their board. So I was wondering how the Park Pickle stacks up to the Artifact and other park boards.

Probably going with a 158 but thinking about trying a 156. Just hoping a 156 is not too small. Don't have to worry about float cause I'm in the mid-west so powder will never happen and its usually just ice (one of the reasons I love the mag-trac tech of the Mervin line). So give me your ideas on the most flexible best park board.

The Pickle probably wont really feel any softer than your CC. The Artifact is a good option I'd also look for a Flow Verve, Signal Rocker Light or Park Flat, Nitro Swindle or Haze, or a Bataleon Disaster. Stick with around that 158 size. 156 is a little over doing the downsizing thing.

Thanks man, I demo'd some off brand board recommended by my local shop today and it was pretty amazing. It was a rocker/camber board that was pretty flexy. I fell in love. Super buttery. Can't wait to pick up a new park board.

Something "Stuf" or "Stuf" something. LOL I can't remember. Had definitely never heard of it. But I will say it rode really well. But, what about DC's line? Seems like they're priced pretty well just don't know anyone who has one.

Look for something with a magnetraction type of tech on a board if you want it, otherwise i would suggest a capita horrorscope.

A buddy of mine rides a Capita Sierrascope and it doesn't seem as noodly as I'm looking for. But it could just be how he rides.

The horrorscope is alot softer than the sierrascope. I own the horrorscope and it is soft as hell and i demoed a never summer evo and i still preferred my horrorscope in the park. But when hitting jumps 45ft. and up i wouldn't recommend the horrorscope

That's good to know, I thought they were pretty much the same. How flexible is the horrorscope compared to the Artifact? Its the most flexible board I have felt and really the only one I could use as comparison.
