help pick a park deck

hey everyone i need some help picking a solid park deck. i do a great deal of rails and boxes as well as gaps and such. a few of my friends have suggested o-matic, signal and burton. idc about burton cuz i have burton mayhem right now which as you probly know isnt a great deck for park but i make it work and it actually isnt all that bad to be honest. oh and on a side note anyone know of a really good wax? my friend swears by this wax called "30 below" i think its called but he says its 30$ a bar.

First of all u must decide if u want rocker , camber or some 'hybrid' like RC or flatline, TBT. If u want deck strictly for a park/jib riding u can choose from almost every brand on market , but i recommend look at Never summer , K2 ,capita, rome ,signal, bataleon , forum ,nitro ,ride , mervin(gnu,lib tech), burton if u like them. Every brand got their kind of reverse camber so its up to u decide which u want for ur style of riding.About wax...imo buy a lot cheap 'alltemperature' wax and u will be fine

I have no experience with the signal park rocker but it does not seem to be highly rated on this board.

the signal park rocker has a very extreme rocker and is also ridiculously soft. it will be good for jibs and rails but it limits you so much. you will get worked on jumps and it wont do well when you just wanna mellow out and ride some groomers late in the day. im sure you know what im talking about.
i recommend s something a little more solid such as a capita horrorscope, or a k2 weapon. those are both jib rail machines that also hold up relatively well all over the mountain. 390s are good park bindings though .

Or an artifact 1985 which is a rev camber, beefed up artifact with carbon V stringers for enjoyable pop. mmmmmhm.

There just hasn't been much discussion on them here, but that doesn't mean anything. I've heard good things from local shops too, so take that as you will. They're priced pretty low, so they might be a great value.

That's the Signal Park Rocker in the nutshell right now... screw it. Have fun washing out and not landing any jumps, and being absolute crap for freeride.
