I am just stuck and would like some opinions maybe from people that have tried these boards.
I had a similar experience last season riding a mega wide 165 - difficult to have fun in the park. This season I choose a shorter but still very stiff board and I had tons of fun in the park.

So, maybe also take a look at the GNU Danny Kass 158. Its still a twin tip freestyle board but stiffer than Park Pickle and Joystick. Given your height/weight I think it might be the right length for park without being unstable/too much of a noodle on the groomers.

For free-riding and backcountry, why not just stick with the Custom?

definitly the park pickle and definitly dont listen to this guy...you can take it anywhere its not just a park board, the rocker will help you float in pow if you wanna take it there. the 159 will be stiff enough that you can do bomb runs without feeling like its a noodle. its a good all around board jumps well, you can press it all day. also the park pickle is the same thing as the skate banana with asymetic sidecuts, same price too. the only downfall lib techs and gnu's have is there top sheets are crap.....but i would still definitly get the park pickle....
