Arrow Which board...

Im 17
135
I would deffinitely classify myself as a expert rider in all mountain. But this season i wanna work more on park because all i can do now is small jibs and straight airs, and a 180 or 3 on good days aha.

Im selling my used 06 vapor for 400
AND i have a brand new never used vapor 06 at my side.

ive been thinking about getting the Rome Design
and rescently ive been scoping the bataleon evil twin (basically the TBT is attracting me)

what would u suppose i should get?
the new vapor is still gonna be in my possession but i feel its an all mountain board as the stance isnt true twin....

help?

I ride a Design. I wouldn't recommend it for park, though.

Because it isn't made for the park. It's built to take on the mountain. You could use it in the park, but you could get a much better park board for the price.

And, yes, smaller is better for park riding.

High 140s is your perfect size for all-mountain freestyle/park.
Go a little smaller for park specific and jib specific, a little bigger for freeride, and even bigger for big mountain/backcountry.

The boards I listed are/were available on Backcountry/Dogfunk at those sizes (well I don't know about the Bataleon).
