If your hitting jumps check the Rome Graft instead of the Artifact. It is *slightlly* stiffer, and will ne able handle landings better than the Artifact (which is a PURE jib deck). I'v got a Graft, and trust me, it's stil PLENTY soft for wipping your margrin-spread all over the park and mountain. 147 might be too small, too. Check the 150/151 weight ranges. I think you might tap-out weight max for the 147, but not sure.

The signal is much softer. The Signal Park Series is one of the softest boards on the market. It still has good pop and is super light too. I like it because I was about to go from 148 to 150 for more stability and it's not much different on rotations because of the light weight. Signal makes some really nice boards for all styles of riding too. Omni is a sweet shred deck. I love my park series though.

I'm 160lb and 5' 7" as well. If that info helps. 147 sounds way too small for someone 170lbs. It might be cool for rails and jibbing, but it won't cut it as an all round deck. I have a 147 Ride Kink and it's sketchy at high speeds.

Amen brother!

I also agree with Sedition, the Artifact is a floppy son of a bitch and if you happen to land on the tail just wrong that thing folds in half under your weight. I weigh 175ish and have a 153 artifact and that thing gets crazy under me at times. I'd look at a larger board if I was you man.

When the fuck did we get ice cream?
