Ride Berzerker vs Capita BSOD

Found a deal on the 2012 model of these two boards and after hours of internet searching I can't find any significant differences between the two besides the Ride being damper. Anyone have experience with both of these boards?

I live in the midwest and mostly ride mid to soft flex all mt freestyle type boards (Yes Basic, Burton Process, NS Revolver). Looking to pick up something that will be better suited for big mountain riding for when I vacation out west, but isn't so freeride oriented that it will be completely useless on the 700 ft of vertical I have to play with back home.

I'm open to other suggestions but I'm pretty set on these two due to the price. I'd love to grab a PYL or Ultra Dream but have a hard time justifying the price tag for a board I'm only going to ride for a week or two each year.

Wow, just googled some reviews, they do sound very similar. Pick which ever on you think sounds cooler.

Low rise vs. Flat kick?
Is it the bsod with the glow in the dark top sheet? Very useful attribute.
I also googled the price on the pyl, almost 500 for last years model. Seems like a sweet board but i wouldn't spend that much on it. Why isn't there a thread hating on Yes prices yet?

TFA has the glow in the dark topsheet.

From 12 was when I hated the BSOD and didn't feel very stable on a 159. I weighed 150 at the time. The Zerker though is one of the better charger all mountain decks I've ridden recently. That.

Thanks Nivek, I was hoping you would weigh in on this. I know it's been a few years but do you remember the difference in flex and turn initiation? I fully expected the zerker to be more stable, but thought the bsod might be a bit more nimble and have more play to it. This will essentially be my powder board so float is my primary concern, after that just looking for something that will still be a relatively versatile all mt board. Zerker fit the bill or is it more of a straight line bomber?

The Berzerker was better in every way. Quicker edge to edge, more stable straight line, and more pop. From that year I wouldn't pick the BSOD over the Berzerker for any reason.

The Zerker is super fun....I absolutely LOVE the deep sidecut, wish more decks had a sid cut like that. Very stable but playful, good pop, etc.

Awesome thanks for your input. Found a brand new 2012 for $185 so it's on its way. Only thing I'm a worried about is my 11.5 boots with that narrow ass waist, but hoping I'll be ok considering the wider nose/tail and deeper sidecut. I looked up some of your other threads and sounds like you've got the Capos on this?

I have a somewhat similar board (2014 Endeavor Live) on Capos and they are great. COMPLETELY changed the way I could maneouver the board. Totally recommend them if you like metal baseplates.

Hmm 11.5 boots is riiiight on the limit.

I wear sz 11 on a 159cm regular width, and it makes it. Aggressive sidecut R (forgot the radius but i think ~7.8 m) and 251mm waist....
