Help me choose between 3 boards.

Hey, First off I'm 5'9, 120 pounds(give or take 5 pounds), I wear a size 11 boot and I'm currently riding an 07/08 155 Burton Blunt. This year I'm looking for a smaller board with a lot more flex to mess around in the park since there isn't much powder where I live.

I have it narrowed down to about 3 boards. I'm looking at the K2 WWW Rocker, the CAPiTA Indoor Survival, and the CAPiTA Horrorscope. I want to be able to butter and press and I want some good pop to go along with the board. I take about 4-5 trips during the season to some bigger resorts where I can actually ride pow and hit some bigger jumps so I would need the board to hold up there too. Also, could the Rome Artifact be a decent board too? It would be helpful if you guys could help me with a board, the length, and possibly a wide if needed?

Thanks, Ben.

I understand this, but I would like to know which one would be best for my requirements, such as what I want to do with it and my height, weight, and boot size.

I know the WWW Rocker won't be able to handle bigger jumps. It'll be too loose on the landings. It'd do pow pretty good though.

of the two capitas the horrorscope is more jibby with the indoor survival being a tad stiffer and but still labled a park/freestyle board

indoor survivor FK !! i wanted a board for the excact same reasons u do and the same riding...the indoor FK seemed to fit it perfect, causes its stiff enough for the mtn. and has all the features u want for a park board... i got the artifact at 1st, but its too much of a noodle for mtn, and it has soft bronze edges that wont keep a good edge..so dont get it.... btw, im 5'11" 164lbs and went with a 152cm for the indoor..

Okay, well thanks for the information, I probably won't be getting that since I don't ride much pow. Thanks.

Alright, thanks man. It looks like I'm going to have to choose between the indoor and the horrorscope, the weapon is ruled out now.

That sounds exactly what I'm looking for. I'm just rethinking though, as I said earlier I take about 5 trips to a bigger mountain which happens to be Big Sky, Montana. How big of kickers would the horrorscope hold up to? I would like to classify myself as an intermediate rider and the biggest kickers I have gone off of so far are about 20-25 ft. but will possibly be bigger this year. If you can help me out then thanks. (:
