Default NS Evo-R or Capita Horrorscope

So I narrowed it down to 2 boards (finally). Seems like I like the Evo-R to be more stable when going fast compared to other park boards. Plus the reviews say it has a lot of pop.

I've read good things about the Horrorscope but I'm not sure how well it would hold up at fast speeds and if it has a good amount of pop. I do like that it is soft for jibbing but I don't want to sacrifice stability going down steep trails or pop.

I also looked into the Bataleon Riot but I'm not sure if it's good for jibbing.

So which board would be the best for park (more jibbing than jumps) and the occasional black diamond?

Horrorscope for sure. Read BA's review on it and you'll be convinced.

the jib stick is a noodle by all accounts. Neither the Evo nor the Horrorscope are noodles (unless you size down too far..)

The jib stick is definitely not a total noodle. The horrorscope is softer than the jib stick and the Evo, but it can handle fast speeds. I have a jib stick and a horrorscope and love them both.

What is "ba's review?" Is there a website you would recommend that reviews a lot of boards and gives detailed reviews on them?
