Armada Halo/THall/Alpha 1/Punx
I'm 5'9 and 135-140 pounds and not growing. I like to jib around and do butters, presses and surface switchups the most. I think 90% Rails 10% Jumps. I am used to a wider-rockered ski around 105 underfoot but I would like to try something smaller to speed my spinning in tight spots and generally have tricks easier to make. These 4 skis are my options so I would prefer not to be recommended others.
With the THall/Punx my worry is that I won't like to not have rocker for surface switchups and ollies, Alpha my worry is too stiff for butters given I am a light man. Halos may be the right decision? but 82 seems very narrow to me (same for punx/alphas), is it easy to get used to go from a wide ski to a narrow one?
Sorry for my english, I tried.
either way you go, you are getting a light ski from armada. if u are really set on doing mostly rails halos would be the best choice, given u want the softer flex. t halls are solid as well tho.
Halos nigga! Best ski iveeveriwned and mad quick fun and poppy. Also the softer flex is a bonus for rails and butters as well

Halos, you right with your gut feeling
Halos sound perfect for you.
Thanks for the help so far, def thinking the Halo is the most likely now.
Anyone want to try to argue the THall would be better?
I think the halo would suit you well since you're used to rockered skis. It's essentially the park version of the JJ.
If you wanted more stability and Jump ability out of your ski thalls/punx would be a choice. But you said you like the rocker and rails so your choice.
halo if your skiing rails and average sized jumps.
alpha 1 if you are skiing bigger jumps or like skis on the stiffer side.
I got halos and gotta say I fucking love em to death.
