Default Horrorscope vs. Never Summer Circuit-R

Looking for a new board this year, and I'm debating between these two boards, or possibly the Indoor Survival FK 154 and the Evo-R. Could anybody compare these to a Stairmaster 152 and a Stepchild Chamberlain 156 both from a few years ago? Those are my current boards, and I have to say that I really prefer the Stairmaster, the Stepchild is just a bit stiff for my tastes and normal riding but I keep it for when I go visit my brother out in BC.

apples to oranges man.

Capita Horrorscope with Union Contacts and Force Bindings my view ~ The Angry Snowboarder
Never Summer Circuit R a closer look ~ The Angry Snowboarder

Both are fun decks, but each one rides so different cause of the anti-camber options in them.

Thanks for the links, from what I gathered you felt the Horrorscope would be a slightly more allround deck? I didn't expect this because of what I've seen where people are selling their horrorscopes to get the ultrafear and talking to a few shop guys who said the horrorscope was pretty noodley. I was wondering how much softer the horrorscope "felt" than the stairmaster even though they share constructions because I ride my stairmaster all over (live on the east coast, in Nova Scotia, but I rode it all over when I lived in Banff too). I'm basically looking at what to get to replace the stairmaster, it's haggard after a few seasons of straight abuse. I'm 5'8", 160 lbs, solid rider, but living in the east now just dork around all over, sometimes pretty fast though. Not a jib superstar, but will be riding more and more park I suppose. If the horrorscope can hold up as well as the stairmaster did on the mtn I'll get that because it's cheaper and I'm a student all over again, money's tight.

I have a lot of friends that ride the horrorscope all over and I ride my circuit R all over. They each ride different but have their place. Since you're riding ice I'd actually lean more towards the circuit r cause of the vario power grip, it just holds on better on ice.
