Thanks man.
Depends on the size. For me at 150 lbs the 153 made a killer play around park board. The 56 was definitely a more all mountain board feel. That's one of the things with Signal, sizing up in any of their decks is more than just getting a little more board, the flex characteristics are more size appropriate than most other brands I've been on. Size appropriate as in I can jib the smaller sizes and freeride the bigger sizes in every model.

Update : Signal Omni

Update. I pounced on next years Signal Omni 156 for $150. Got to ride it yesterday at what's left of Crystal. Short runs on wet, tuggy slush. But I couldn't be happier with this board. It's massive fun.

Just as I'd assumed, the camber brings back some of that locked in old school stability when charging while maintaining playfullness with the rockered tips. It's perfect for my riding preferences.

It was rad to flat base again after so many years on C2 and rocker. I felt like I could rail turns all day and the baord seemed to know exactly when and where I wanted to go. Never fought me or got twitchy. And damn solid pop.

I'm psyched.

Yeah, I don't know if its the camrock profile or this board in particular but I feel like it prompted me to ride with better form- more knee flexion, good shoulders. It couldn't have been me just having a good day because I was really hungover.

The more I kept the knees flexed the more the board rewarded me. It was rad.
