Good Kicker Board?

Hey guys, I'm looking for a board that can handle medium sized kickers, but still have a soft flex to press on boxes and to butter with. I'm looking at the Bataleon Evil Twin, Nitro Haze, and Nitro Swindle. Is there any other boards you guys suggest? Thanks for helping me out

**EDIT

I've now looked into the Rome Artifact Standard Camber. I really like the specs on this board, but I just don't want to have this board then start hitting the bigger kickers (30ft - 40ft) and it mess up on me. Any other boards that are playful (flex 3 - 5) that are good with med sized kickers?

I'm a intermediate rider.
I really like to do tricks off med kickers, but I want to start getting into jibs and rails.
I'm 5'6 and 145 lbs and I'm 18 ( I doubt I will grow anymore).

So that's basically a pain in the ass too jib.

Of your said choices the Hero is probably your best bet. From Bataleon try the Whatever, and from Nitro try the Pro Series.

Others to look at would be the Signal Park, Endeavor Live Reverse, Contract Circus, Echelon Franken, or Flow Verve or Era.

The ET is more of a big jump board and will not lend itself to jibby pressy jibs. Course it will work if u can ride like BA always says, but this is not the board you are looking for.

Prove us wrong buy mine

I also saw the Nitro Haze. I've kicked the hero out because of the pricey est bindings

There are plenty of other bindings that fit on ICS. If you're on a budget the Haze isn't a bad option, but for about the same price you can get a Signal Park or Park Flat which has a sintered base or a Flow verve which is RC and has a beveled base between the feet. I don't know prices on Echelon yet but I'm pretty sure they're very competitive so I'm assuming the Franken is also going to land somewhere sub $400. Could be wrong there though.
