Had no idea that was an actual board. I take my statement back. I thought you were just being a wiseass.

HA! Didn't catch that "dude with a box". Wait, that wouldn't make me a dude then would it? Funny though, now I look at that board name in a whole new light....."box scratcher". I need a fresh coat of wax on my box scratcher...that's what she said....could go on and on....

Well the OP did ask for a butter board and softness makes buttering easier. I like my Subpop (before they changed the name to Subzero). Its true that its super soft, but it holds a great edge once you realize all the edge control is done between the bindings.

How about a 2010/2011 K2 fastplant 154? That was before they put the ollie bar in it to stiffen it up (which was unneccesary in my opinion). The bamboo core allows the board to flex and butter like crazy but provides plenty of pop and is pretty stable at high speeds and for landing jumps. I'm 5'10 180lbs, sze 10 boots, and one of my rides is that same board and year but a 157, I love it

Hey! This is the Company Commander, Don

I happen to have a 152 at my business partner's home in NH; I can drop ship it to you from there if you'd like! paypal@echelonsnow.com is our address; we'll knock 20% off just because why not?
