butter board?

sorry if i posted in the wrong place but i was torn on whether i should post here or general talk

ANYhoo on with the show.
So my predicament would be that i'm in need of a new butter board. the board i have right now, the good old trust m3 discord, is too stiff for my taste, its actually pretty damn stiff, and i think its time to go up to another board. i was looking into banana's previously and i posted a thread about that. BUT the reason why i posted another thread is to look at any other kind of butter board.
so far i know that the ride kink is really nice. the banana is nice, but unavailable , the rome artifact looks nice. any other suggestions? (OH and i don't have a real good paying job atm so more bang for the buck would be best case scenario!)

The only way that board could be stiff for someone is if they are somewhere like 75lbs UNDER the mfg's recomended weight.

The WWW is one of the softest boards made.

I think the Kink is the cheapest but I'd personally go with the WWW, that thing looks absolutely nasty and it's a quality board. I was never interested in buying a banana but I hear it's like finding a needle in a haystack, especially late in the season so good luck with that if that's what you decide to do. How long is your friends WWW? Because yeah he must be a feather if he thinks its stiff. Is it possible that he's tall and bought his board based on height rather than weight?
