I am assumeing it is a little softer than my raygun....I hope...lol
either way I am loving k2 so i couldnt go wrong
I haven't used the Raygun so I can't comment on how its flex compares to the Parkstar. In my experience though, my parkstar was pretty soft right when I get it and after I used it 5-10 times and broke it in, it got even softer. Not noodly soft, but real easy to press and butter without much effort. The parkstar definitely has better tech in it than the Raygun as well. I also find it to be very fast for a park board, probably due to the sintered base.

The garage rocker is a good choice too because it has a similar profile, quite a bit cheaper, 2 year warranty (vs K2's 1 year), and I would guess Rome has the better customer service. Judging solely by the board though I would take the Parkstar every time.

I don't have experience we the garage rocker but I'm pretty sure it's noticeably softer than the park pickle as well.

thread is a couple weeks old but not a dino....lol

How is the flex of the garage compared to the artifact?
Looking for somthing with more flex than my k2 raygun and my buddies park pickle,both feel about the same,just a little to stiff for my park liking.
been interested in these boards for a little while.
