jayb Thats why i am so torn my draft is to playful, but yet my old Coda is camber so just going to a rockered coda should make a huge difference on the playful side. i think thanks for the help.

jdang307 Personally didn't like the Westmark a ton. Loved the Coda.

If you're doing a lot of pressing/buttering/jibbing, maybe.

The Coda is a much much better board for going fast, and still plenty to be playful with. I could do pussy butters (because I'm a pussy) with the Coda. So anyone good could do what you please with it.

It was much more stable at speed.

I think I liked the Coda because it was so springy. Crazy how it's rocker but it would just pop off anything.

But people love their Westmark. It's not a bad board I guess. Turns out I'm not a jibber so I didn't need it.

Turch My vote is the westmark. It can do anything from all-mountain/pow to park/jibs. It is soft enough to be playful and poppy in the park when you want, but then also have the stability when charging all-mountain and pow runs. The board is just sick. I recommend it if you lean more towards park, but want it to be able to do everything else as well.

jayb I have a cambered 08 Coda 155 that I love I also have a draft in 155cm i am looking for something i can go fast on and still have it be playful I am very torn between the Westmark or a new Rockered Coda. I really don't notice the rocker on the draft unless I am on box or a rail because the flex is so soft. my weight is 170 boot size 9. I was initially thinking westmark, but now another Coda. I would like to stick with NS or Arbor

In older camber boards the answer would have been yes, less playful. Now it depends on the design. In rockered boards and hybrid boards it does not critically effect playfulness when the board is not on edge, because that portion of the edge is not in contact (to varying degrees and depending on the design).

The effective edge of the current Indoor FK 152 is 113
The effective edge of the current Coda 153 is 116.4
The effective edge of the current Westmark 153 is 119.6

The Westmark 153 will be awesome for your specs.

What model was your old 152?

The Westmark will be correct for your 9.5's (Between the Westmark and the Blacklist). What is your weight? That will help us dial in the right size for you.

Both will do it all but the Westmark will favor Park while the Coda will dig the Pow a little more. Many sick times on the Westmark (Blacklist) for me. That is a major board for Arbor.
