the el von is a super fun shape at the cable. but not one that I would consider to have "soft" landings. of the boards you have been asking about the Union is most likely your best bet for flex and good landings. I ride the cwb groove and it lands really well as well. I just got to spin the woodro and was pleasantly surprised at its pressability and it wasnt harsh on landings at all.
I have other buddies that ride the deluxe and love it too.
All board companies are making great cable boards now so you really cant go wrong with many of them.
