I have ridden both the park star and the park pickle

I ride a 157 Parkstar and ride everywhere with it and have had it since the new year. I'm in the midwest so typically what I ride on is manmade snow/ice which it handles well actually. It bites hard into the ice and I can carve and link my turns easily. Of what I have ridden, which excludes the park pickle, it feels awesome. I spend a lot of time in the park and ride rails and hit jumps. As far as the soft comments, in general I don't feel it's soft however maybe it is softer than the Pickle (dunno never ridden one). I bought mine before all the sales came back when they were all $430 (well I got mine for $386 shipped on eBay new heh) and I still don't regret buying it knowing I could have gotten something else for much less.
However I cannot tell you which board is better because I have not ridden the pickle.
I'm curious if anyone else in here that is saying one board is best over the other has actually ridden both extensively or are you just trying to justify your purchase of the pickle/parkstar and giving your opinion of what you have read?

The pickle will be find on the rails.. This board won the rails to riches competition this year so that should give you an idea about how it will do on rails. You wont have a single issue. It is a touch stiffer than the Skate Banana so the pop will be better and landings better and more stable at higher speeds. It will also be better when your taking it off the bigger stuff.. The mag-traction shouldnt give you any issues at all, only benefits. As far as the rest of the mountain it should be very playfull and fun. The asymmetrical side cut will make your heal side turns tighter and the reverse camber floaty and catch free. Trasnworld rated the pickle 5 stars and any
review you read about the board gives it its praises.
What i dont understand is the votes for the Parkster with noone saying why they think the parkster is the better choice. Every post in here has been pro Pickle. ... Strange
