Default Lobster Freestyle and Ride DH 2012

I was just wondering what people's opinions were on these. I ride mainly all park which includes jumps and jobs. I am located in the Midwest so I dont really get big poweder days ever.
I was just wondering if this board would be good and if it would be still fun on jibs with its given flex. I am 145 lb and about 5' 11" and I would probably get a 151.

my boy has the 2010 DH 2.4 and just loves it. It has held up very well to WI hills. He does some jibbing/park loves the jumps and this board has good pop.

If memory serves the Lobster is close to the FunKink if not just a FunKink with a gross graphic. So that. The DH is a jump board. Not fun to jib unless you are a power rider hitting jibs at mach 90.

Ya Nivek I think I am heavily considering the arbor westmark from what you said in my other posts.

I have the 13 westmark for this season.
I was under the impression that this is just a bit softer then my Skatebanana and not a real jibby board but a ton of pop.
I can't wait to ride it either way !!!

Lobster Freestyle is their new "jumping" board at just a little stiffer than the Lobster Park if I am not mistaken.

I say Lobster over the Ride.

I think that they changed the boards a bit this season, last season I believe the jibbaord was the same as the Disaster and Parkbaord was the same as the Evil Twin.

If you look at the spec. this year the Jibbaord are still the same as the Disaster, but the Parkbaord is same as the Airobic and the Freestyle is same as the Evil Twin.

But I would def. go with the Lobster(Bataleon if you like that graphic more)..

if your looking to save some money you should check out the wonk from Zion snowboards. Its suppose to be a great all over the mountain board that does well jibbing. Check out Shays review of it here.
