Default board help please

Im recently stuck between boards, or if you can recommend me some.....

about me

intermediate / advanced rider
5'9
165 Ibs
size 10 boot
burton cartel bindings

what I do

50% freeride when Im on the hill with my fiance when I ride with her, I still tinker with ollie'ing buttering etc
50% in the park when Im alone

I live in wisconsin, so no big powder hills here. but I do go about 3-4 times a week

my fiance knew I needed a new board, so she got me a burton bullet, well as we all know, the response rate on this thing is terrible, and its super stiff. so I need to replace it to fit my needs

boards Im thinking about are

K2 WWW
Lib tech TRS
rome artifact
Lib tech Skate Banana

now I dont know exactly if those fit my needs / wants in boards... if you guys have suggestions please let me know, along with the size you would recommend

thank you in advance

Can't speak for the other two boards, but the Artifact will work for you. It's a great board.

I have only heard good things about the artifact...my cousin had it and he absolutely loved it. He spends a lot of time in the park but will occasionally take a couple slow rides down the hill.

Out of all those, the TRS BTX will be much better for all-mountain stuff.

WWW and Artifact are super soft park boards that don't like coming out of the park.

what about the plain ol Skate banana, would that suit me well? again these are small hills, not moutains, so we dont have high speed runs here.

just buttering, jibbing, park, and some carving here and there with the women ( which I still butter then )

mehr, the life on those skate bananas aren't that great. my friend's delaminated at the nose. had to fix it with gorilla glue. i got a Ride DH2 that's perty stable, but still soft enough to butter. lot of snap.

K2 WWW's are too soft IMO, so are artifacts, especially for kickers and carving. but Rome Grafts and Agents are a bit more stable. K2 Darkstar is a better choice too.

if you do want a rockered/butter board, try a K2 Turbo Dream or Never Summer Evo. both of those have rocker and are gonna be pretty good at carving and easy to butter cuz of the rocker. personally i'd go with an Evo.
