|sb60||The Feelgood is a harder board to ride. If you can't find the infinity online you can order it from neversummer in Denver.|

|sirgoo||We went to tremblant the past weekend and she demo'd the 144 Burton Feelgood, her weight is suppose to ride the 140 but we want to give a 144 a try to see if she likes it or not because the diva was one of her choice and it only comes shortest 144. She was having a bit of trouble maneuvering but she felt great going in faster speed and being more stable and she really like the hybrid rocker/camber profile. At the end of the day, she kinda set her mind to NS infinity 142cm now. She wanted to get the maneuvering she had from her old 138cm board but not sacrifice the stableness a lot so 140-142cm is where we are aiming for the next board. One thing about NF Infinity 142cm is that is going to be hard to find.|

I have an Eminence. It is a true twin rocker c2 (like never summer) with magna traction. Not as soft as the Infinity (which is a great all around board) or the Ollie Pop which also has rocker C2. The Banana smoothie has elliptical camber which I haven't ridden but I think it is the same (or better?) than c2-- slightly softer than the Ollie Pop. Rocker between the bindings and camber under foot so you have the easy turn initiation (less edge catch). Ollie Pop is also rocker C2. I think with her weight the Ollie Pop would be a good choice in a 145.
The thing I've found about Roxy (made by Mervin like Gnu, etc.) is they have a nice flex between the bindings.

|edlo||5'2 wife just went from 152 Arbor Push to Arbor Swoon 151 with K2 rear entry cinch and really likes Swoon. No freestyle, no parks, Mammoth. Didn't like Burton Feel Good or Troop. Didn't like the flow binding because the high backs wouldn't stay down.|

|Zedekias||I got my gf the NS Infinity for Christmas this year and she loves it. It's a well rounded board.|

Thank you for all the kind recommendation. I think I kinda nail it down to the fews
NS Infinity 142
Rossignol Diva Magtek 144
A few question about the Roxy boards.
What's the difference between Banana Smoothie and Eminence ?
Would OlliePop a bit more on the park side compare to the boards above ?
and I'm gonna take a closer look at the Smokin' Vixen.

|sb60||Never Summer Infinity is a great board that goes everywhere. The b-pro and the Lotus (now Raven) are kind of stiff. I mostly ride the Roxy Envi which they don't make anymore. You might look into the Roxy Ollie Pop which has rocker/camber magna trax and is softer for her weight. Or the Eminence in a short length.|
