Artifact vs Scaremaster

So I am torn between the artifact and the scaremaste. I'm not sure wether I want to sacrafice the rail domination for versatility or vise versa. I deffinately want something thats going to kill it on the rails/boxes though. Is the scare still relitivelt easy for presses and tail blocks? I have also been looking that the forum youngblood or manual. Havent heard much about these.

p.s. I see that there is another post abou these boards

i can press my board(stairmaster extreme), and i can press an artifact. there is nothing like pressing a rocker though its like cheating. pressing a banana is like unfair, ive heard boards like the jibstick and horroscope are even easier.

Go for the Scaremaster. The Artifact is a good board but the Scare is better. It is pressable and blockable. Its the perfect flex for park riding, easy to press but not so easy that you don't feel locked in when you do, and has enough substance to let you hit 60footers if you feel like it. To find a better board you'd have to step up to a Jibpan, Mod, or maybe a Hero.

You might wait till next year though cause I've heard rumors of the Indoor series getting rocker and FK. If so I recommend that.

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

For sure, I have never been a big park rider, but I'm getting into it and am just looking for a cheap board to finish out the year (heard great things about the stair/scare). I'm thinking about getting the Capita green machine w/ rocker next season though.
