Looking for a good jib board

I am 5'10" 175lbs and I am looking for a strictly mess around jib board for rails, boxes, ground tricks, buttering, and small jumps. I already have a 156 Custom X which is my all mountain board and a 156 Arbor Westmark which is my park board for the bigger jumps. I am looking for something a little shorter and softer than my Westmark. I was looking at the 153 Arbor Draft, but I am open to any suggestions. Also, what soft bindings would be a good match for a jib board. Thanks in advance.

Unless its year 1 or 2 that is one of the boards I loathe the most, Urban FK ruined that board. If its year 1 or 2 its a fantastic ride and you should definitely get that. Year one was '09.

Look at the Echelon Killbox. Soft but with a bit of carbon to keep it lively. Blown out contact pts and wider so you downsize. Basically everything the Nug wishes it was. One of the most fun boards I've been on for small hill cruisin or spring lazy play days. Totally jumpable and of the better jib flexes I've ridden.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

Haven't followed capita in a few years, sad to hear they ruined the horrorscope, last one I rode was an 2010 that was super fun

I asked the same thing a few pages back. Bought a Burton SuperHero for 180 off AlTrec..killer IMO considering they retail for 450 new. Support to be super fun for butters and jibs. Plus it has the raduction tech so if you ride like a 157 normally, a 153 or 4 is perfect for you.

I also heard capita has a bad warranty program and considering the fact that I recently broke my other board I am also taking into account the warranty.

Would there be a noticeable difference on jibs with a 153 Arbor Draft compared to my 156 Arbor Westmark

What do you think about the Bataleon Disaster 153 or Arbor Draft 153 for jibbing and small/medium jumps. I already have a Arbor Westmark 156 so I don't want something too close to that.
