Default Need help finding a park board.. Big Jumps!

Need some help finding a sick park board, I was planning on going with a Bataleon board but now I'm having doubts, hearing bad things about poor edge hold and not the best for jumps.. I looked into the Rome 3d Nohang-ups but also edge hold isn't there..

I want a board that has some forgiveness on those sketchy landing but can take a hit meaning some big jumps. Also that is good on rails and presses but my main use will be jumps

Any recommendation on some great park boards

The Arbor Draft looks good how u think it will do on med-big jumps ?? Also it Rocker :-/

I want some camber in my park board for that pop, the Capita line looks good the Indoor Survival and Defender of Awesome have a sweet camber profile and med flex

Get a Rome reverb sick board nd the pop is popgasmic on it. It really good for jumps and almost as good for rails only downside is if u want the best performance from it u gotta hot wax it. Then before every session use paste wax if u do that best board I'll ever have,and they even have a wide version

The Rome Reverb looks good reminds me of my Banana Magic BTX! Camber profile the Rome Mtn camber profile looks similar and that's is really stiff board like the Banana Magic not much forgiveness there from my experience

How big are your "big jumps" you are referring to... If its 20 footers most will handle it. Ride kink will handle those and be fine on rails. Plus it's cheap and durable.

the arbor westie would also work for a park jump board stiffer then the draft just enough to hit the bigger jumps.

You ain't kidding about it being stiffer and considering it is a mountain rocker with the smallest being a 157 might be too long for me for the park for all mountain it would b perfect size

Jumps that size anything over a noodly jib board would be okay in my opinion. I think the Kink would be fine only thing is its not really poppy. Ride Mechete would probably be real good and still is fun to play on. Same with the NS proto everyone around here seems to love that board.
Just wait for Nevik I'm sure he will suggest some super solid boards for ya.
