Final Decision

So stats: 140lbs, 5'8, Size 9.5. I want a board for All mountain. Mainly for messin around on the mountain and Pow, but not useless in the park and on jibs. So like a 70/30 split Mountain/park. I much prefer true twins.

So far I've been looking at the Scallywag, Indoor FK, Machete, Parkstar, and Rook. Probably all in either 154 or 155. After perusing the forum I noticed a lot of NS promotion goin on. I would love one, but I can't get proforms for them and can't afford to pay full price for anything right now and CAPiTA is a maybe proform, not for sure yet.

Well you've got some various anti-camber options here. The Rook is zero, the ride, CAPiTA, and K2 are 3 stage, and the Forum is continuous rocker. The zero cam is going to be the most stable on jumps, then the Ride with lowrize. The CAPiTA and K2 are very comparable boards, main difference there is carbon in the tips of the Parkstar and carbon between the bindings of the CAPiTA. So softer middle, or softer tips? The Forum will be the least stable but will probably float the best for strictly powder.

Hope that helps some.

It helps a little. I think I'm cutting the CAPiTA cause I think I want more response in my tips for charging outside groomers.

I'm ok with the stability thing. I used to ride a plank M3 that was too big for me, and right now I'm on a K2 WWW rocker. I didn't have a problem with eithers stability. So I'm perfectly fine on something that characteristicly unstable or something way to overstable.

Any word on how the DH2 compares to the Machete. I get the feeling the machete is stiffer between the bindings and torsionally and the DH2 is stiffer in the tips.

Can anyone clarify?

and more help on the rest of my options would be welcom
