I had my first season on my SL 158 this year and I like it a lot for an all mountain board. However It seemed a bit stiff and not very playful. I am 5-10, 205 and want something I can butter around and take all over the mountain. I am just getting into park and stick to about 10-15' kickers.

At windells I demo'd a Yes Jackpot and it seemed more playful but I need to find a used board for about $200 and I can't get a Jackpot for that.

Thoughts???

You're just inexperienced. The Jackpot is plenty butterable.

If you do want something softer that maintains its stability, Flow Era, K2 Happy Hour, Salomon Time Machine, Nitro Rook, Rossi Retox, Signal Freedom Machine Flat, or a Bataleon Whatever.

Ive been reading reviews about Arbor Westmarks and aside from the durability issues, it seems like the ride I'm looking for.

Right now I'm torn between a 156 and a 158. I weigh 205 and have always ridden 158's all mountain. Since I'm looking for something more playful I'm leaning 156.
