The only reason I would take it outside the park is if I was going to be buttering on shallow hills. If you aren't buttering or are using steeper hills I definitely wouldn't recommend it outside of park. It'll be a whole lot softer than the pickle. I don't have experience we the garage rocker but I'm pretty sure it's noticeably softer than the park pickle as well.

The Parkstar is the better board between those. It has more tech (better base, better fiberglass layout, etc). I am somewhat biased since I own 2 of them though. The garage rocker is a good choice too because it has a similar profile, quite a bit cheaper, 2 year warranty (vs K2's 1 year), and I would guess Rome has the better customer service. Judging solely by the board though I would take the Parkstar every time.

I haven't used the Raygun so I can't comment on how its flex compares to the Parkstar. In my experience though, my parkstar was pretty soft right when I get it and after I used it 5-10 times and broke it in, it got even softer. Not noodly soft, but real easy to press and butter without much effort. The parkstar definitely has better tech in it than the Raygun as well. I also find it to be very fast for a park board, probably due to the sintered base.
