Question about Signal boards

I am looking at getting a new board and have a question about several Signal boards. I am looking at either the Signal Park Series or the Signal Rocker Light. I ride mainly groomers but am also looking into getting into riding park. So which board would be a better fit?

It depends if you want rocker or camber. Not really a matter of which is better, more just preference.

The rocker light is rocker and the park series is regular camber

Don't know too much ab Signal but a Pickle sounds like a good fit for what you're looking for. Rode a 2010 Pickle for a season..rocker def makes learning to butter easier and it held up really well on groomers..it was a friend's board so I never tried de-tuning the edges but you're supposed to be able to without losing edge control bc of the mag-track

Are these boards going to be to soft for groomers?

not sure what you mean by too soft for groomers but they should handle riding all mountain just fine

As long as you're not charging or nipple carving you'll be g2g..cruising groomers are fun on a rocker

The Rocker Light will ride looser, the Park is overall a bit softer. Both will do whatever you want pretty well, the Rocker will be easier to learn jibs with, the Park will be better on jumps. Though both are capable everywhere.
