Capita Stairmaster or Ride Kink

Looking for a jib/buttery noodle for the park to start learning in the park on. Which one out of those 2 would be a better buy? Same price right now essentially. BTW I'm 5'7" and 160lbs. I'm thinking 152, or should I go shorter for a park only board?

BTW, I already have a GNU Rider's Choice MTX, looking for something significantly softer than that

Can anyone confirm that the stairmaster is significantly softer than the 07/08 GNU Rider's Choice MTX? I don't want to end up with a board too similar to what I already have

The Stairmaster is significantly stiffer than the Kink or the Artifact, if you want super buttery/jibby board get one of the latter two.

i have the stairmaster extreme which is stiffer then the regular and its more then soft enough for jibbing. if you cant butter it, then you cant butter...it is a great board, but its just not a super soft noodle if thats what your expecting. im almost the some size as you and the 152 is nice for jibbing for me and i tend to prefer smaller boards so i think the 152 will be perfect.

I'd say go with the Capita 152. From what I understand, the Scaremaster & Stairmaster are the same board just diff graphics...is that right?
