Leo Get the Hero and don't look back. Excellent freestyle stick. It's on the softer side of Sears with decent pop and great edge to edge response.

Here's the thing, I demoed a wide model with my size 10 boot and I still found the thing to be responsive edge to edge. I had a lot of fun just messing around on this board. Definitely good for buttering.

jas_kidd32 I'm looking for a board to ride this season and I haven't seen many 2012 boards where I'm from.

I've narrowed down my search to either a Process V-Rocker or Hero. Which of the 2 is the better park board?

the 2012 gets squeezebox making it useful for more than just jibbing and buttering. Somewhat jumpable now.

Nivek I have heard that the 2012 Hero is a solid board good for everything in the park. Good playful board to compliment the more all mountain drivin SL.

Which Burton park board with ICS?

Here's my story. I currently ride a Never Summer SL which replaced my old Custom V-Rocker. I have since sold my Custom and now I have a spare '09 Cartel EST. I'm reluctant to sell the Cartels because it was given to me as a present a couple of years ago.

I live in Australia and our snow has started. I'm looking for something more freestyle/park oriented to pair with my Cartel. I'm an intermediate rider starting to learn some ground tricks like presses, buttering, etc. I know the Cartel may be a little stiff for park but I've seen it done by my friend who rides them with a Hero.

What do you recommend I should get to compliment my SL? These boards have caught my eye:
  • X8V
  • Hero
  • Joystick
  • Process

I appreciate any feedback about any of these boards.

Also, will the '09 Cartel EST be compatible with the newer Burton board with the M6 channel system?
