sheepstealer To contrast with triumph, I ride a Mod Rocker. It's just as the description says it is...its a do-it-all deck, with a slight lean towards park and jumps. It's probably around a 6-7 for flex (10 being very stiff).

Regardless, really fun board. Really poppy.

If it helps, before I bought the Mod rocker I was deciding between that, the Machete, Rom Agent Rocker and Ride Buckwild. Sounds like you're in the same ballpark...either way can't go wrong.

triumph.man I have a machete, and I can definitely bomb runs while being in full control and holding an edge on tight fast corners. In terms of flexibility I'd definitely rate it at least a 7 out of 10 in stiffness. And that lowrize profile will give that playfulness feel to the board. Looks just what you are looking for.

Rookie09 that sounds right. It looks like the Jibsaw is 40% rocker and 60% camber. supposed to be fairly stiff in the nose and tail and loose in the middle. Probably wouldn't want to use to too much on jibs, so it could fit your uses pretty well too.

Sorry, Rossi puts out the Jibsaw. Ski companies, but I'll take a nice board from them if they put it out.
