Yeah, I got boots, board, and bindings for $210. The fact that I got that great of a deal was all I needed, at the time I didn't even know stiffness made a difference as extremely as it does.
But yes, I heard that those Capita's ride real nice from some friends, but I know they have some durability issues.
Also, I looked into the forum contract, and the Forum Rat. I hear they both are bulletproof, and are good boards, but the contract is much stiffer than they advertise. If you could go into some more detail with maybe a few pros and cons that would be great. I am still learning things, and could always use some opinions on things. Thanks a bunch.
