Ride Buck Up vs Buckwild
Background: My sales territory is now in the mid-Atlantic vs CO (which sucks, but moving on...), so it looks like a PA mountain for me. Need an all mountain board with lots of pop, that you can mess around, butter and press some, and still have fun on jumps with a strong tip and tale.
I'm 5'11, 178, and probably sizing to a 153 in the Buckwild, or 152 in the Buck Up. Going to be hitting the jump line, some boxes, and just want a board to dick around on. Without a big mountain, I'm going to get board fast, so this will be primarily in the park.
Rode the DH2 last year. Really liked it, just a little stiff for me because I already had a TRice. Like having the camber between the bindings for a change, and enjoyed dampening of the slime walls.
Had a Capita Ultrafear for a year, however, was severely disappointed with the tail and tip getting so damn soft. After day 15 or so, that board could be folded in half. Rode the Westmark for a day - not my thing. Just felt a little boring.
So here is my question. What are the main differences between the Buckwild and Buck Up. Has anyone demoed both, and which would fit more. Never going to be a rail guy. Too old (33). So it's boxes, jumps, natural stuff, buttering around, popping off anything I can find - a Pennsylvania mountain board.
