Default Signal Park Rocker Light 152 - vs 154

Hi there!

So this is me:
74kg
178cm
+7 years of snowboard experience
Boots: 32 Lashed US10.5 / EUR44

I am looking for a butter board purely for jibbing and playing. Currently focusing on the Signal Park Rocker Light but doubting between two sizes: 152 and 154 because of my weight but more about shoe size.

Anyone here with the same board and similar human specs who can advice me?
Thanks
Koen

Shoe size should not be an issue. Not gonna lie but at that weight I would go bigger on the sizes even as just a jib board.

I think the 52 is fine. I disagree with going bigger, 74kg comes out to like 163# so a 152 isn't too short. If you are park cruising and want to use it as your "all mountain park" board, 54 would be good.

150 Park Flat easily charged all over the place for me weighing 145. With the light being 3 stage, I think you'll want the 52 if it's just for jibbing/buttering.

You think shoe size not an issue although these boards have a pretty small waist width 152: 24.3 cm and 154: 24.6 cm? I know these are indications by the manufacturer but.. Problem is that 152 is completely sold out in Netherlands so I cannot go to a local shop to verify myself with my boots.

You'll be fine on either. The 52 will be a little bit softer with a tad thinner core, and the 54 will give you a bit more room. Either way the Rocker Light has a decent sidecut so at the inserts you'll be fine on either size.
