Really flexy boards
 
Hey guys. ive been riding the same rossignol board for abotu 3 years at a 154 which I'm sure is too small for me at 5'9 200lbs which should be down to 185-190 lbs by the time season starts. My board now is real stiff and I can't stand it anymore.

I'm looking for a board thats got a lot of pop and mainly for park/freestyle riding with a little powder and the right length for my size. Looking to spend 300-400.

Thanks
Andy

Im also rocking some burton moto boots and freestyle bindings

Flexy and pop don't go together.

Okay...now that i thougth bout it then it makes sense bout the difference in pop/flex. 14 hour workdays definitely screw with your thinking. Is there a board that is relatively priced that has a good combo of the two. Ive heard the Rome agent being tossed around these boards quite a bit but can't seem to find one in a good price range.

Thanks fo the quick response

Read the review of the Rome graft on here, that one sounds like a winner

There's so many options. But are you just looking for a board you can ride well with for everything?

Yeah kinda with an emphasis on park. I tore my meniscus/ACL up a coupe years ago (1st time out west) when i got stuck in some pow, slid onto my side and fell into a tree...haha i know. But the stiffness of my current board I thinik had to do with tearing that shit. My knees still act up so a flexible board has felt better.
