Default Best Park Board under 500

Im getting a new board at the end of the season, I was wondering what is the best park board for under 500 dollars. Also what are some good park bindings. I hear that the Rome Targas, and 390s are good, which one is better and is there any other bindings you would recomend. Right now I am riding an 06 burton se7en, with 06 burton cartels.

Here are some options. Starimaster, Horroscope, Darkstar, Evo-R, or Hero. But the winner has to be the Jibpan.

For bindings I say Formulas, Forces, 390's, or Distortions. Top pick for that is Forces.

The Jibpan is a top-end park board.

Bindings, get 390s or Forces.

banana is a noodle , don't feel save on them when i'm taking kickers (i know its made for rails en stuf)

park boards... it depends what you want , do you want to take kickers and fly higher than superman or do you want to jib like a crazy mofo on every thing you see.

i have the hero , nice kickerboard not an jibgenius

I disagree. The skate banana blows the horrorscope out of the water.

It depends on what type of riding you're into most. You like a poppy park board or a pressy park board? Or something in between? Jumps more or rails? A lot of factors to consider.

For mostly jibbing I say Horroscope. After Reading BA's review on the Sub-Pop, If you do almost no jumps then it sounds like a good board for you. Its as rare as the Horroscope though. If you can't find either, next best for mostly jibs is the Weapon rocker or no rocker. Rocker for almost no jumps and camber for a little jumping.

I do agree with this. If you're into jibbing, get something that's easy to press. The horrorscope is right up your ally
