redlude97 You should be looking at the horrorscope fk if you don't want to spend over $400 on a board, or a Capita Stairmaster. The stairmaster is stiffer than the Kink but is still buttereable, and can be taken off of decent sized kickers also, although the horrorscope would be the better choice, but slightly more expensive and slightly stiffer, but still easily butter/pressable

whats the problem with the kink and big air...wouldnt the normal camber stablize it enough to ride it?
i mean i rode a burton bullet in it last year, and it seemed alright, will it just be too unstable in the take off? or will i seriously injure myself trying to land it because its too soft?

We only know as much about you as you tell people in your posts so at first, it just seemed like you were asking which noodle will be better suited to hit 40 foot airs which isn't exactly a straightforward question to answer. It sounds like you want the best all-mountain deck under $400, but your questions are geared toward jib sticks. I'm not trying to be a dick but I'm obviously not helping you so good luck in your search.
no no no not you man! your where a great help...just some other people LOL sorry if it seemed like i was blaming you!

man, i don't know if he can be helped. People have been trying, and he's basically asking what noodle and what park binding is best for riding all mountain and hitting big booters. He's not looking at the right type of gear, and he's not open to other suggestions that would be more suited towards what riding he is asking for

i ask the question on here so i dont have to drive 30 mins to the board shop to test out the flex of the crush vs the kink
ive done a ton of research on boards this year
and what i want is a board soft enough and easy enough to butter/press, but still sturdy enough if i want to enter a big air competition for a 35 ft kicker like last year. i would also like to maybe get up to 45 ft this year. the parkstar looks the best for me but im not spending over 400 dollars on a board, and this whole rocker thing has got me all mixed up
seriously man, why are you trying to start stuff with everyone? He's trying to help you. He's trying to get an idea of how you ride, where you ride, what you do on the mountain so that he can give you his recommendation based on that info. In the other thread, I let it slide after you said that the guy was arguing with you in another thread, but after I read this flip-out by you, I realize that you're nothing but a lazy guy who isn't doing what he says he is and in fact doesn't actually want help because you won't answer questions from people who are legitimately trying to help you.

Here is the only help I'll give you, and it's straight from the Ride website that you said you "researched"
Crush Flex:5
Kink Flex: 4

Hey, no way, they even have a boardfinder built into the website that makes it easy to find what kind of board you want. I'll even give you the link so you don't get lost on the way around the Ride site. Ride Boardfinder!!!!
