So I am a fairly experienced jibber and I am looking for something very flexy to throw around on rails. I am not much of a jump guy, probably 80% rails and jibs. I have been trying to decide between a Bataleon Disaster and a Arbor Draft. I am
5' 7" and weigh 130 pounds. Money is not and object, but my Rome Shank did not hold up as well as I thought and did not have enough flex. I am big into presses and I am really looking for a strong playful board that I can take all over the jibs. I have heard good things about Bataleons TBT but i feel it could be unstable for presses, the Arbor Draft has a traditional rocker. Which do you think would be better for all rail and jib riding. PS. I do bot ride street because I live in a very rural area.

can't speak for the arbor, but i have a lobster jib board which is very similar to the bataleon and can say that the tbt model on that board, "jib tbt," is really mellow and has a wider center. you can press all day on it and won't get squirrelly. it's very flexy too, and today i bombed some hills with it and it held up super well for being a softer board.

The jib baord\disaster are super noodles you shouldn't have any problems pressing it even with it being clambered.

rome artifact rocker maybe? it seemed pretty playful to me and has a reputation as a great jib board. the guy at the local shop tried to sell me a 2012 for 200 bucks... i shoulda snagged it but decided to pass since im not much of a jibber.
