dont get a coaster. most people get coasters for street and you barely ride street... plus those are meant for flatland and wont hold up very long. if you do decide to get one though wait for the cult fc...

The 3/8ths is the hard part.

Both of those are flatland coasters. If you don't run pegs you will be fine on them.

Don't get a coaster for park/trails. Thats the dumbest thing I've ever heard. You don't get the engagement you need. There's few park tricks that a coaster makes any sense and absolutely NOTHING at trails unless you plan on 180ing doubles or riding trails backwards.
Why do you want one? Because they don't make noise? You can silence a cassette hub and get the no-noise with the engagement that you actually need.
If you're dead set on a FC go with the Ezra, so you can swap to Cassette when you begin to regret it. Or find a used FC for $70- and ride it for atleast a year before you make the decision to buy a brand new FC.

Most female FCs should do it then. KHE/Federal/Cult. I'd go cult and grind away the excess "shemale" axle stubs.

I think for trails it is silly, but not for park.

People ride coasters at parks all the time.

As far as flatland specific, they will handle some standing on pegs, but they typically are set up a little lighter as flatland has different stresses than street and park. Grinding will be likely to bend the alloy center axle, which will stress the bearings out some.
