Default rome graft or ride kink

I was going to get the ride kink but people said it was horrible off of jumps. Im not doin huge jumps maybe medium sized ones but i also like messin around on greens and blues. The rome graft seems good but is it still good for jibbing and butters? This board is pretty much for the park and tricks only i hav another board for mountain riding

the graft is better at everything imo. ride kink is a throwaway board for handrails only..

i got a great deal on the kink for 170 but i dont know if it can handle jumps that well like 30 ft nothin really bigger. Is the graft nice and flexy like the kink just with a little more stiffness for jumps. Can it butter and jib easily?

I have a 09 Kink and it's alot softer than the Dom. Never rode the Graft so I don't know. But if your just want a board for jumps, green and blues, why dont you just get a bigger board? I ride a 155 by the way.

I did a long review of last years Graft. If it is of any help, do a search on "rome graft: first ride review" and I think you'll find it.
