Default Salomon Villain vs Flow Verve? open to other suggestions too

Hi

Im still undecided about the stick that i will purchase, i want a flexible board for the park that can handle small to mid size jumps. Flows M9 will probably be bindings. Somebody told me to look at the Parkstar or the Era too but i think the last one would be a little bit stiffer for what i want.

...so Verve vs Villain, im open to more suggestions too.

I ride in the east coast, the snow is not good most the time being very icy. I'm 6'2" 185 lbs.

Please give some advice people, last time just one person answered me and help me a lot narrowing my list so i wish this thread would interest more people to help me please.

Thanks

Usually when you beg people to help and point out that nobody helped you last time nobody is going to help. Just saying. It sounds whiny.

Pick whatever is cheaper and you like the graphics better.

Get the Villain. It's a new model.

K, chill. Yeah we somehow missed this one, but it's only been 5 hours.

Villain is actually similar in flex to the Era. So not that if you think the Era is gonna be too stiff. Drift Rocker instead.

And then I say get the Verve. Carbon and rolled base between the feet all for what like $360? Its a killer deal and a solid board.

Now you're getting it.

You have to be an annoying blunted_combat_troll in order to have anyone respond.

Thanks

I can get both 2013 verve for 180 and the villain for 243. Actually I have 370 in store credit and money won't be an issue pretty much for any board. my girlfriend works there and she can get good discounts ( so if u think there is something better let me know) The think is now I have doubts on the price of the verve, seems too cheap. I have heard great things about that board and is on top of my list. I know money doesn't guaranteed good quality but if I have to put some extra bucks for something better I'll do it.

If u say the verve 154 or 157 ?

If you want something jibbier the 154 Verve. If you want more stability, just bump up to the 155 Era or 154 Shifty. Don't be fooled by Flow's lower prices, they are killer boards worth more than you pay.

From Salomon if you want something jibby the Drift rocker for sure. For more stability and more capability on the rest of the mountain the Villain is a truly well done board.

Added Luxury Money will go alot further in your boots and bindings.

Rocks have no respect for how much the base and rails of your board cost you.

That's true.

I want something jibbier so verve is the one. I also want something good on landings and since it has some camber on it should be decent. I'm 185 lbs and I shouldn't have any problem on the 154 right? And I'm size 11 on boots, would I have any trouble with that?

Thanks for the input

It will probably be less than comfortable on anything over 25ft, but yeah you'll be fine otherwise. Footsize is fine too.
