New Jib Board?

Hey, new here. Looking for a new jib board. I live in MN so theres no jumps over 40 feet. So far I've been looking at the Echelon Rounds, Bataleon Destroyer, Rome Artifact Rocker, and the Capita Ultrafear FK. Need some rider feedback or opinions. Thanks

What are you looking for? Super soft or something that can handle jumps too. Granted anything under 40 and just about any modern board will be ok, but I know I like the camber board even if it is just a 35 footer.

Our park hasn't had a decent jump line in years so it will probably be used for 99% jibs.

What would you choose between the two? And which one would be more durable?

Different takes on doing the same thing. Both easy to press. Both loose. The Echelon will ride through kinks easier with 3D base and the Disaster will be more precise.
