Good kicker board

Hey guys
Im looking for a board that is good for medium kickers (20-30 ft knuckle to knuckle) and Riding Fast. I also wanna be able to butter, and 50-50 some boxes and rails occasionally. I know thats a lot for a board to handle. My priorities for a board is
1. Kickers
2. Fast
3. Butters
4. Rails
Right now i ride a burton honcho stiff camber, which i can't butter on but i can grind and can go fast
budget > 800 preferably 600 range
Im looking at the Rome Mod Rocker, Never Summer Proto CTX and the Bataleon Whatever
I know there is alot more
Any Suggestions?

Burton Honcho is a 3/10 on the stiffness scale, I don't think you'll get a board that's much easier to butter while still being stable at high speeds and on big jumps.

I would have said the good old Burton Custom would be a good board for speed and kickers, and I know guys that butter, slide, press them quite often, but they're stiffer than the Honcho as far as I know!

Is your honcho too long for your weight?!?

How much do you weigh and what size are you riding?

You should have no problems buttering that board. It's not stiff.

Off topic though
Ive never ridden a rocker board so i dont know if i want to commit to that. I hate though at slow speeds the camber wants to catch edges. Suggestions?

Doesn't matter how old you are. A 10.5 boot doesn't need a wide board

Even if you get to a 12 you don't have abnormally large feet, even for 5'10.

You don't need a wide, and wont till you hit 11.5's.

You deck is too big.

Get yourself a Salomon Sabotage 154, Flow Era 153, Arbor Blacklist 154, Nitro Rook 154, Signal Park 154, Flow Shifty 154, Burton Parkitect 154, or a Bataleon Whatever 153.

I thought my board was only a little big, my guy at my shop picked it out for me. Lesson learned don't trust a salesperson. I wanted a board that would last 2 seasons.
