Exclamation Your Board Choice??

Hey, im thinking of a new board for next year and was curious to know what you may suggest. Im looking for a board that i can take into the park and dominate. Really flexy and short. Im thinking anywhere from a 147-152.... I have to rule out the WWWrc for other reasons but really looking for a board possibly similar. Something to tear the park inside out but be able to survive outside the park. Im riding the Rome Agent now and love it but looking for something softer for next year...Any brand im down for whatever company.. So let me know what you may have in mind.

Boards i was semi-thinking about:: Box Scratcher, artifactRC, skate banana?.... but give me more suggestions! thanks

I really want an Indoor Survival Fk from capita next year. It supposedly has soft nose and tail and a little stiffer mid section so it jibs well , but is also really stable. I really wish they made it in a little bit smaller size. 52 is the smallest they make

I have the capita mid life lost which is the wider version of the indoor survival. It's a KILLER board but its not super soft by any means.

EDIT* I dont know if that is the same story with the flat kick, I've never ridden a rocker board so I dont know if it makes a difference or not on flex.

i am not sure what the smallest size they make in the horrorscope fk is, but they are coming out with the space metal fantasy fk for next year (which is the girls version of the horrorscope) and it is a rockin board. i almost bought the demo this spring, but decided on a different one instead. but that one comes in...at least a 147 and i think maybe one a little smaller too

I never got a change to ride an artifact RC but I was told between the 2 to go for the Skate Banana and I do not regret my choice at all.
