Default Rome Artifact vs K2 WWW

I'm basically looking for an all-around fun board and I've pretty much narrowed it down to an Artifact and a K2 WWW. I sort of want rocker or reverse camber because I heard it's great for spins, but idk. Would the artifact be good for jumps? If i bombed down a groomer or hit up some trees would it hold up? I also heard the artifact gets beat up pretty easily. I basically want a soft-flexed park board that i can hit jumps with and bomb runs and ride trees with. HELP ME DECIDE!!!

The Artifact is pretty much stricktly jib board. If your looking for more of an all mountain board that is more geared towards park try out the Graft from Rome, and if your looking for an all mountain that really does everything check out the Agent, or Pusher if your looking for something with a rocker. The pusher is essentially a Agent with rocker from what I understand.

I can't really speak for K2 cause I have no personal expierence with thier product. But everyone I have ever talked to loves theirs.

yeah i think i should go with a more all around freestyle board instead of just a job board, because i dont only jib when i go to the mountain. Do you think the artifact would be bad off of jumps?

With the K2 line, look at the Parkstar. It is essentially a Darkstar with K2's version of rocker. It's a great park board with the ability to take it everywhere else.

i rode an artifact all last year and it held up around the hill.. its not ideal for hard charging and kickers but will get the job done and in reality it rides good in deeper snow but your legs will pay the price. the weapon is slightly stiffer but not by much. i wouldn,t suggest rocker on those decks for jumps though

I have a WWW rocker and they are great man i rode it on every sort of terrain and its is the best board that i have rode yet! Good off big jumps,rails,POW because of the rocker, rode alot of trees with it and you can really whip the board easily to cruze the trees. I would recomend to any one.

Basically what everyone else said, they're both jibsticks, Try a rome agent or postermania or they have the new 010 agent with a rocker design I forget the name of it though. You may also like the k2 parkstar or the jibpan with rocker.

Parkstar, Indoor FK, or DH2. All will do exactly what you want.
