pink And the neversummer revolver is a mid wide EVO. Just found that out. Kind of excited about that one. Gonna have to demo as well.

aiidoneus I normally ride the NS Evo for this kind of stuff and enjoy it. I recently gave the Saloman Villain a try and actually really liked it. It had Now IPO's and I didn't really enjoy them, but the Villain was a solid all around board. Playful, carvy, decent pop. It does not butter as well as the Evo though a bit stiffer there. I also found it was a bit slower to spin around than I am used to with the my Evo and Proto. But I was also riding a longer board than I am used to.

Domg You guys are all awesome. Thanks for the recommendation, so far I am going to try out the Bataleon Disaster, K2 WWW and Gnu street series. Once I get a chance to demo these boards I'll update on here. Pink, I will let you know which one I went ahead and picked as the winner.

kev711 I'm not sure is they come in a wide but I used so love buttering and hitting boxes with my signal park rocker but once I started hitting jumps I picked up a Bataleon Disaster and I love it

rcboxer The GNU Street series is A fun buttery board. It's A mid-wide width and is a real fun park board.

pink I'm in the same boat. Size 12 foot. Want something buttery and fun as my TRice pro is a little too stiff for fun stuff.

I called three shops. 1 in Mammoth, 1 in Tahoe and, well, the Burton store in LA.

I got recommendations all over the place but all three didn't care for the skate banana at all which was on my list so I threw that out.

All three called the K2 WWW completely soft and noodley. Wouldn't go off a jump with one.

Mammoth guy said Arbor Draft, Burton Custom X Flying V Restricted, Burton Namdropper or Bataleon Global Warmer. None of which are wide.

Tahoe guy loved Capita. Suggested Capita neverfear or Danny Brizze (sp). Not wide. Said GNU Carbon Credit is going to be stiffer still medium but a little harder to press.

Burton guy said Name Dropper or Super Hero. I asked if the super hero could go off jumps and he said 20-30footers all day long.

Since the Super Hero is the only one out of all those wide enough that's the one I'm leaning toward. Good ride gave it a terrible review. I would have to demo it.

Let me know what you find out.

jdang307 K2 WWW. Not a noodle. But fairly soft.

Domg Thanks for the speedy responses. Each board looks pretty good. I'm going to sway more towards a soft flex so I can butter it up on the slopes. I'm open to other suggestions if anyone has them. Thanks again

Pigpen I picked up a Forum Youngblood Doubledog 155W, best jibbing board I've ever ridden
