New board for jibbing/kickers

My season is pretty much over and I decided my NS circuit is too boring. I'm looking for a board that can handle 20-30 foot kickers with a good amount of pop and also butter around the hill and spend some time on jibbing. probably 50/50 kickers/jibbing. I was looking at bataleon/lobster, mainly the disaster/jibboard or parkboard. I was also suggested to try the capita stairmaster and rome artifact. Will this boards be too soft? Any other suggestions will be considered.

My Rome artifact is a total noodle even though I huck it off 50 footers I would go with a board with more pop. From Bataleon/Lobster the Jib Board/Disaster are both supposed to be noodles. However the Parkboard is mid flexing and with TBT it will be buttery and playful while having camber to keep it lively. The airobic from Bataleon is a bit softer than the Park board but a bit more rigid than the disaster so it should be just what you are looking for in my opinion.

Emerica should make snowboard boots

FunKink if you want TBT.

Otherwise try a Signal Park Flat or Rocker Light. Nitro Swindle, maybe T1, Arbor Westmark/Blacklist, Flow Shifty.

I would suggest a capita indoor survival because it is soft but not soft enough to wash out on 50+ kickers and is a great board to progress on

Rocker Light does works here, but its fully capable of jumping too. Angrysnowboarder.com reviewed it and was hitting the medium line at Breck. So probably bigger than your biggest hits.
