Capita Horrorscope

Hey guys,

I'm new to this forum but I just want some input on a question that I have.
I'm going to buy a Capita Horrorscope FK, but I don't know if I should buy a 147 or a 151. I'm 160lbs. but I ride mainly rails and boxes, and I like to butterrr. I ride almost everyday because I work and ride at the Snowflex center in Virginia. My friends told me to get a smaller board, will I break the 147 easily?

Break the 147, probably not, but get the 151 anyways.

You wouldn't break the board for sure. The board is built to last, but the 151 would be more suitable for you. At your weight you will be able to flex it amazingly. My Horrorscope 147 is on it's way to my house. Can't wait to get on that beast! Welcome to the family.

You have a choice on ebay lol. They have all last years models (I have the 156 and its sick) on ebay. 2 are brand new, 1 is used.
156 = CAPITA horrorscope fk 156 new - eBay (item 290386433028 end time Jan-04-10 12:42:23 PST)
152 = Used '09 Capita Horrorscope FK Reverse Camber Snowboard - eBay (item 280445053919 end time Jan-06-10 16:22:14 PST)
148 = *BRAND NEW* CAPITA HORRORSCOPE FK 148 Snowboard 2009 - eBay (item 160391685787 end time Jan-12-10 19:00:14 PST)
The only difference really is that the newer models are avail. in wide and they're stiffer. These graphics look sicker imo.

They're still super soft, and a new wood core was put in.

Thats why they're a bit more stiffer. Thinking of picking another one up at the end of the season.

just rode my 151 horroscope first time today. Also it was my first time riding a reverse camber board, i don't if it me but i feel like if i was going straight the board wiggles a lot and the only way of preventing that is to keep carving.
