Total noodle or, easy to press it ? Why not rocker? Supposed to be better profile for butters etc

your boots would probably be fine, many a little toe and heel hang, but you can always adjust your stance

any of them are fine. the bataleon will "feel" a little harder to press until you actually learn how to press boards because it is cambered. The hero stopped being made by burton in 2012 and was replaced by the superhero (which I have ridden and love) it has a flat profile unlike the hero which has a v shaped rocker. stay away from anything that isnt a wide, you will regret it over time.
