So how do you like Ride bindings for park? Mainly the maestros, I have been looking into them for my Lobster

My all mountain board is the 154 parkboard at the moment.
I think the '51 would be too short for me, but if you're used to riding a '54, it will probably feel great

My all-mountain is a Burton TWC Standard from last year. It's a 156W.
I'm riding the 153 Lobster. Very playful, loose and lots of pop.

TBT is a lot of fun and I like having a super-soft board for learning buttering, jumps, rails and boxes. The edges are super-forgiving and it feels faster than my previous boards.
The only drawback is the edge hold, which is why it does not bomb runs very well. You can still turn easily, but it lacks the carving feeling of other boards.
I certainly recommend this board as an addition to your quiver, but not as a "do-it-all" board.
That sounds good, yeah I don't want to get rid of my Parkboard, it has good edge hold and carving fast is fun and stable. I like that it is plenty stiff enough for bigger jumps.

I am mostly looking at replacing my old Horrorscope with a slightly shorter jibboard, and I think either the jibboard or disaster would be good.

Well i feel very comfortable bombing runs on the evil twin. Idk i might pick up a lobster just to get it. i much enjoy my Epic Grim Rabbit. I highly suggest that for a park board.

I like it, once I got used to TBT, I had pretty much the same experience as you, easy landings, good to butter but holds an edge when I need it.

I'll have a look at getting the Jibboard this year, I haven't ridden it, but I can imagine that a soft TBT board would be fun.
