i've been on a park pickle, and reg riders choice too. I found the heel side cut much too tight on the pickle. It s 7.5m heel / 8.3 toe. I prefer longer side cuts, and 7.5 was just too tight. the riders choice seems like a better combo being 7.9/8.3. still noticeable but not overkill.
Funny what snowwolf said about traversing, i found that the tight sidecut made it hard to carry speed across the fall line as the board wanted to turn up hill. Compared to a lando phoenix with 8.75m side cut made it easy to cut hard across a slope. I find that stiff highbacks and some extra forward lean on the front foot helps with heelside turns.
