Bataleon vs Lobster...etc.

Hi everyone this is my frist post on this forum so be easy on me, thank you. But currently i am riding a few different boards. but my favorite is my Bataleon evil twin artist edition. this is my 2nd season on the board and its been through hell and back, it has yet to let me down. it feels amazing, has great pop and the TBT (triple Base Technology) is by far my favorite tech. I rarely catch edges. and its great for pow landings. i primarily ride park but i enjoy a day of back trails for time to time. so Im just seeing if people have ridden lobster boards to give me a comparitive opinion, or any other thoughts, this isnt limited to just lobster, ill consider any board except a burton. I have a vendetta against burton.

Sorry, I don't really get the question. Do you want to buy a different board?

Lobster are basically Bataleon boards with different graphics. So if you're happy wit the Evil Twin there's no need to switch.

I have the Lobster Parkboard Troublemaker from last year, from what I know it is just a rebranded Evil Twin. Aren't all Lobster boards just different graphics on Bataleon boards?

I like it, once I got used to TBT, I had pretty much the same experience as you, easy landings, good to butter but holds an edge when I need it.

I'll have a look at getting the Jibboard this year, I haven't ridden it, but I can imagine that a soft TBT board would be fun.

What's up with the Burton vendetta? Or is this just Burton bandwagon hating?

I'm riding last year's Lobster jibboard.
TBT is a lot of fun and I like having a super-soft board for learning buttering, jumps, rails and boxes. The edges are super-forgiving and it feels faster than my previous boards.
The only drawback is the edge hold, which is why it does not bomb runs very well. You can still turn easily, but it lacks the carving feeling of other boards.
I certainly recommend this board as an addition to your quiver, but not as a "do-it-all" board.

Well i feel very comfortable bombing runs on the evil twin. Idk i might pick up a lobster just to get it. i much enjoy my Epic Grim Rabbit. I highly suggest that for a park board.

That sounds good, yeah I don't want to get rid of my Parkboard, it has good edge hold and carving fast is fun and stable. I like that it is plenty stiff enough for bigger jumps.

I am mostly looking at replacing my old Horrorscope with a slightly shorter jibboard, and I think either the jibboard or disaster would be good.
