Urgent Help

hey guys,
I had a short session up at the hill today due to the fact midway through i dropped off a decent sized rock and completely snapped my nose when i landed. i have no idea how it happened, but needless to say, im super bummed. I wasnt going to be buying a board until the summer, but now im forced to pick one up quick and overnight it so i can resume riding asap.
i was originally interested in picking up a signal omni, but i've heard a few comments made about their durability, and after today, i definitely dont want to take a chance on something that might be more likely to break than a different board company. So i was curious as to what Capita recommendations you all might have. Have any of you had any experience with the green machine?? Ive read a few reviews of the ultrafear and the horrorscope, so im just asking for a general idea of what you would recommend. I mostly ride around the mounting, hitting natural terrain as well as jumps, but i'd like something to spend a bit more time in the park with, and something with decent flex, but not too noodley.
i'm sorry this post is very vague and long, but i figured id post on here as i look around online. oh, and the board i was riding before was santa cruz seth huot. definitely a bit stiffer than i would have liked, and ultimately disappointing with the quality despite the nice pop.
thanks guys

I've seen several posts on this forum that makes me question Capita durability. If you want durability, go Never Summer.

thank you guys for your help. i had no idea capita had some issues with durability. ive heard nothing but good things about never summer, but it was just a bit out of my price range at the moment. i actually found a YES 154 and grabbed it as soon as i could.
