Hey,

So I ride a 155cm Ride Machete with Forum Republics and Hails Boots. I wanted to play around with a soft board this season and I was wondering if someone could recommend a decent board and size to check out.   Thanks.

nitro sub zero is cool not to many noodles out there with that kind of hybrid camber, and the thrive accomplice is really fun very poppy for a noodle esp one in it's price range, google thrive snowboards and their site will show up.

If you're keeping your Machete, you can probably get down to 153.

I recommend trying out the rome artifact and the lib tech skate bananas size down maybe to 150-153cm they will be soft as a noodle if you want to play around on the hill.

+1 to this

I most highly recommend the Rome Artifact, camber version in 153 cm. It has an effective edge that's stretched out longer than most other boards even of larger sizes; the QuickRip sidecut gives great turn initiation but can stay on edge for longer carves. The rocker version is too soft. Standing still, I can press and hold the tail 90 degrees perpendicular the ground-- that's too much flex. I'm on my second Artifact Rocker after blowing out the edges from a tail block on the first one. Few words can adequately describe Signal Park Rocker's flex, which is the furthest on this spectrum-- difficult to recommend it if you want to enjoy other parts of the resort, including jumps. Signal makes a more sensible Rocker Light, whose reverse camber has been reduced by half and it rides very much like a looser version of the Rome Artifact Rocker. K2 WWW is a fantastic board for butters and jibs once you break it in to its normal flex. Its flat-to-rocker profile worked great on kickers and ground tricks, I found, good pop, and it's a good ride all over the hill.

Ride Crush is one of the softest Ive tried, for you weight it might be too soft, maybe a DH² also from Ride. That has more pop in the nose and tail. I would suggest around a 154, maybe a 152 or 154 for the DH². 

The Lib Tech Skate Banana feels quite a bit stiffer to me and it weighs considerably more than both of the Rides mentioned above. I can only say the best things about their bases however: they are hands down the strongest and most resilient to core shots I have ever seen. I love Lib Tech boards on any terrain. Here you can easily go a bit shorter thanks to the rocker too... 152 would likely be fun. 
Gnu is now together with Lib Tech and although I have only demoed the pickle once a few years back, I believe the Gnu line is quite a bit softer than the Lib brothers.

From the Burton empire there are 2 boards that I have really enjoyed jibbing around on. One is the Aftermath, a soft camber and the Forum Honey Pot which felt a little stiffer but was all-around super playful. Those I would also go with a 152-155

I have the Evo youth version and it's stiffer than I expected it to be but maybe I still need to break it in because it's still fairly new.

He chan...ged mang! He changed.

Signal Park Rocker is soft but not as flexy in the mid section as the Artifact Rock nor the WWW. Is its shape of the rocker that makes it feel soft. You'll either love it or hate it. It feels super surfy. I'm 125lbs and am on a 147 Vita Rocker, female version of Park Rocker. With that size, I still take it to groomers on icy days and its awesome in pow.

You mean me Sideways99 ? If so then yeah I do now, but started off preferring the soft boards. Have pretty much only switched since I started riding freeride comps.  Thumbs Up

For riding fast and hard, I do prefer something long and hard but OP is looking for something soft for buttering and jibs.

O I forgot, I love Capita boards too. Definitely check out Horrorscope, Indoor Survival, and Stairmaster.
Wish they made a smaller Sierrascope.

It's more of a preference. Depends on what you like/expect, types of terrain (street, park, resorts, etc.), your skill level, riding style, etc.

We can spend all day comparing camber to rocker, camber is poppier, rocker is less catchy but more sketchy, etc. There'll be advantage/disadvantage one over the other, but is about 90% on rider and 10% on gear.

If you don't have a board already, go with camber.
If you have a board, go with the other camber profile.
If your riding level is beginner, go with camber and learn your edges before going to rocker.
If you're torn between the two, there's always flat camber.

Could try TBT? I rode a friends lobster jib this season, it was super fun to muck around. It is a noodle though. I'm thinking of getting a lobster park, or a bataleon this season. (currently riding a machete also btw). Selling it and going to 2 board quiver before hitting Japan in Jan.

Sounds like someone has a camber bias.  LOL

Is only camber fever! Lol.
I'm bias with camber because is great to learn on. It will teach proper edge control, balance, etc better and give a better sense of security due to easily locking and holding on to an edge. All of which will boost confidence and speed up progression. Too many new riders are starting with rocker because they see the marketing term "catch free" and all I see is them washing out and forming bad habits.

I miss camber.

I agree with this, but I think some flexibility in the argument would come from how serious the novice takes their riding development. But I would agree that more forgiving equipment means more likelihood of sloppy technique going unpunished.

I'm going back to full camber too. I'm stuck now with a rocker board because of warranty. Going way, way stiffer, full camber twin by March for sure... a jump board for sending it big. Possibry a DC just like fj5?Shocked

So you can be matching twinsies with Fj5?  LOL  Yeah, I'm waiting on pulling the trigger on a camber as well.

I rode a Capita Horrorscope for a couple of seasons, it was fun and super soft.

日本の割引ゴルフ用品

理由は、日本では、日本の割引ゴルフ用品は、現在、米国での割引ゴルフ用品(タイトリストMB 714)よりも良い割引を提供しているため存在している。あなたがレビューを読むと、すべての消費者が言っているかに注意を払う。あなたは、PGAのゴルフ専門家が残したレビューを見つけることが起こる場合は、それらはあなたが最も注意を払う必要がありますレビューはあり。それは彼らが専門家だという理由だけではありませんが、彼らは、定期的にテストするための装置を送っているので。したがって、彼らは平均的なゴルファーよりもはるかに多くの機器を見てきました。彼らは際立っていたか覚えて、彼らを失望させ何でしょう。
あなたが印象的なレビューを見つけたら、事前のオンライン割引ゴルフ用品の購入に考慮すべきその他の要因が残っています。一つは、無料配達です。サイトは無料配達を提供していない場合は、単にそのサイトに渡す。もう一つの要因は、リターンする。あなたが製品に満足していないのであれば、彼らは、特定の時間枠内でリターンを許可しますか?をこれは必然であってはならないが、それは素敵なボーナスです。次に、さまざまなを探します。あなたが今だけのゴルフクラブを探している場合でも、将来的にはティー、アイアンセット、または手袋のための狩りになる場合があります。それは、すべてのインターネット上でホップすることで複数のサイトとの関係を確立することをお勧めします。 1英国のゴルフの割引サイトに固執することは簡単に検索し、より良い顧客サービスのためになります。
