depends on what you want, artifacts are a bit softer, a bit less poppy then the stairmaster therefore a bit stronger on rails. the stairmaster is better for more things, the artifact is primarily jibs. i ride a 152w stairmaster, 5'7 165lb 10.5 shoe.

After riding a Scare and a Sub Pop, I definitely like the resistance the Scare provides. Wet noodles are fun but I keep going back to wanting my Scare. Yeah I can press my Sub Pop with zero effort and when I do put effort I'm 3/4 the way to a tail block but I just never feel locked in to anything with it. The Stair is the softest board that I really like for riding park, anything softer is

So since the Artifact is softer than the Stair, I say Stair.

The Graft is a good board, but I rarely see many of last years or the year before. Last year I saw tons of that years. So either all thems riding them hated it, or they didn't last. I like Rome boards, but they've developed a habit of not lasting.
