Default signal rocker light vs artifact rocker

Between these two, which has softer flex and which has more pop?

The Rocker Light is probably a little stiffer and a little more versatile.

The Artifact does have a surprising amount of pop for being a noodle. But that doesn't say much in general for the pop of the board. I would second the Light.

These are two very different feeling boards. 3 stage rocker on both can also be thought of as flat rock. The amount and placement of the flat spot is very different on the two decks with the Signal flat spot being longer and the kink much more pronouced.

With a 10 degree transition the Signal profile looks like this:



The Rocker light gets a carbon stringer tip to tail while the Artifact get hot rods in the tip and tail only. This makes the Signal feel more uniformly snappy with the Artifact keeping its pop focused on the tip and tail.

Not this year, but I am stoked on what they are doing. For smaller brands we added Smokin' and Niche this year.

The Rocker Light has a 5* transition. That's the regular full Rocker in the photo. The Light is the red one back there in that photo.
