Default Capita defenders of awesome vs. Salomon the villain

Hey guys, I am looking into getting one of these two boards. I am looking for something that can handle the whole mountain but also excels in the park. I would like the board to be able to handle speed, have lots of pop, be able to press and butter and I would want the board to be lightweight. I am 140 pounds with gear on so I am leaning towards the 150 length for both models. If you have any other board suggestions I am open to them and any input regarding the two boards that I mentioned would be greatly appreciated. Also, I am riding only local Ontario, Canada hills. (Unfortunately)

Even though its 2012/2013 I have the DoA and I'm happy with it. Dope board. I think theyre about the same except for 2012/13 have the carbon kevlar beams that go all the way through instead of the nose.

Sweet thanks for the input. Still up in the air regarding both boards. Both have also won awards for good wood 2015 this year. Unfortunately, the guy who did the video review is not very helpful.

Ya really sturdy board. I think theyve one Good Wood each year since they started producing them.

More of a commercial than a review. I haven't found any for the new ones

I bought a Villain last year to be a softer, more playful board in my quiver. It's really light compared to my other boards and has lots of flex but carves like it's on rails. It feels almost like a full camber board to me and it turns effortlessly. It's easily a board you can ride anywhere outside the park. I didn't find myself limited in any way on the days I did use it, in fact it almost made me regret not just buying the Assassin as a main board instead. If the Assassin was a stiffer board I would probably pick one up just based on how well the Villain rides, but it seems redundant being too similar to the Villain really. Get one, you won't regret it.

The only way is to try them both. I like the Villain.

Thanks for the input. This board seems to be getting a lot of praise.

You would be happy with either, just pick the one you think looks most badass and shred the fuck out of it without trying to over think it
