Default Ride Dh or K2 Darkstar

I need a new board and am looking into the Dh or Darkstar. I had a Gnu Chb and loved it except it was too stiff for jibs/rails. I need something that is all mountain cause i spend time in the park but i also spend a good amount of time free riding (mainly diamonds and dbl diamonds). You guys have any suggestions?

The Believer is stiffer than the Darkstar. Between the DH and the Darkstar, go with the Darkstar. The Darkstar has an even flex throughout whereas I find the DH to be soft in the tip and tail and firmer in the center, which is probably not what you want for your riding.

If you are looking into something like that believer, i would go with the slayblade. It has the same zero camber (flatline tech) and is a little softer for your jibs and park riding, but it will still be nice on the mountain.

I rode a DH for a bit last season, it was really nice. I liked it. The Dh2 is a much better riding board.

Have you ridden the Slayblade or the Believer? Seriously? What do they teach you in NY?

The believer will give you that all mountain flex and pop you want but still be able to hit jibs with no problem. I wouldn't recommend the slayblade as it's stiffer than the believer. They both have 0 camber this year but the believer will have more emphasis on all mountain freestyle while the slayblade is more all mountain freeride.

Isn't the slayblade also have a setback stance. Im no expert but wouldn't that feel way fucked up on jibs.
