Default Board suggestions for my style...

6'2 and 200 pounds, looking for a go to quiver killer deck for 60% park and 40% freeride while still hitting natural features. Definitely want it to be a freestyle board. I'm willing to sacrifice some stability, but still want to be able to bomb down a hill without too much chatter. I know you cant have it all in one board, but figured Id take some suggestions.

East coast rider by the way so I do encounter a lot of ice. I was thinking about a TRS, but I'm not sure if its too stiff or not. Maybe a Proto CT would be a good choice? Burton shrink tech boots allow me to ride a regular board, so wide is not needed.

Proto CT is pretty sweet, I love mine. I have not heard a lot about the new Proto HD yet, but I'd stay tuned for some reviews of that guy if you can wait til Fall.

Flow Rush, Rome Mod Rocker, or a Yes Greats.

All twins that will excel in the park and the rest of the mountain. Shoot for abouts a 158.

Kind of intrigued by the Mod Rocker, but Im afraid it could be too stiff. I sold my T. Rice for that reason. The mountains in my area arent worth it. Any idea if it is more flexy than the T. Rice?

The Rush and Mod are probably a bit stiffer and the Greats is probably pretty close.

So, Yes Jackpot, Flow Era or Shifty, K2 Happy Hour.
