I know this is supposed to be more of a park/jib board, but have heard it pretty much rips anything and everything. Can anyone vouch for this? I'm trying to choose between this or a rome agent reg. camber

Haven't tried it but the general consensus on this board is that everybody who tried it was taken by surprise. perhaps they thought Arbor was a pigeon-holed freeride only company. But this park board has won some interesting awards such as the Snowpress Innovation award (which says a lot when everybody is making a rockered park board) and the Outside 2010 Gear of the year award. read the reviews here and on other sites, everybody's pretty much stoked on it.

So i poster here earlier this year asking about this board and how it was for carving and all mountian riding. I ended up buying a Rossignal ONE MAG, and it is a great board as well with its magnatraction. I was just flying down the mountain.. really just excells.. was just moving... But after a while i still wanting to get into the hole Reverse Cambe thing. I Finaly sold my old Arbor Draft and Baught this New Arbor Draft with its new technologies. I have to say this was the best thing i ever did! This board is amazing. I have been riding for 20 some years and i never thought this Reverse camber would be for me. But the way arbor did it is awsome. I felt like i lost nothing as far as control, maybe alittle in speed becuz of the size. Instantly i fell in love with this board. soooooo smooth.. catch free... easy in and out of turns and edge to edge... and there version of the Magnatraction is perfect... right under your feet where ya need it and never too much. You can just fly down the hill and dig in when ya need... lean out your edge.. and then slide is around when and where ya want... The board is loose but not too loose.. I love the blunted shape.. Its not too wide. but wide enough.. I have 11 size boots and i fit perfect on the 158.5. The parabolic camber is great. not too much like a banana board.. but just right.. i felt instantly comfotable on it.. It really is amazing, and it has revitalized my love all over again for riding.. Thank you Arbor
im about 5'8" and 145-150lbs , been running a 153 Lib MC kink btx for a bit and wanted something softer for rails. The thign about the MC is that the kink tips make it shorter than 153 and im worried that getting a draft in a 153 will feel too long for jiberjabbing

The kinked (shorter) tips should actually give the board more effective edge, so a 153 in another style should rid a little shorter than the MC Kink.

Semi experienced rider here. I can mob the runs quick with friends and just starting to get into the park/jib stuff. I've only ridden 2 boards growing up. Neither had reverse camber or magnetraction.
I've read a lot on both and am thinking about getting a board with them. This board seems to have the best price point with those 2 features.
What are the pros and cons of this board?
Also, any other board suggestions in a similar price point that are available in 147-149, thanks!

I've been riding this board as my freestyle board so far this year and its super poppy and has a great edge hold with the grip tech edges. Not as soft as I thought. It is arbors softest board though. I would give it a 4-5 for flex on a scale from 1-10. (1 being the softest) It does NOT have a 2 cm setback, it is centered. Love the graphics on the board, just icing on the cake!
