If you want a jib board, you need a soft board. If you want a jump/pipe board, the Vapor is awesome. Plus it is a great all-mountain board as well.

I have the precursor to the Vapor, the Burton FL and while it's not a park board, it is a terrific all mountain board. Stiff enough to go fast and hold a turn without too much chatter or washout, and good pop in the nose and tail. A bit too firm for really easy buttering but not impossible, it just takes a lot more effort and patience to get the hang of it.
I got my FL in 2000 and still ride it because it does so many things well. Give it a chance (unless you ride only park) and you may learn to love it like I have.

|Nivek||Also a honeycomb construction means there are air pillers all over the board. Easy to dent or gouge those areas. Sell it, maybe for profit, and get a better park board.|
