Default Capita Stairmaster vs. Capita Stairmaster Extreme

What are the differences? Which one should I get? What are the advantages of both of them compared to the others?


I am leaning more towards the Stairmaster Extreme just because it is stiffer and has a faster base, but if its not worth it to spend the extra money tell me. I was also considering getting the horrorscope, is there really that big a difference between camber and rocker/ flat kick.

Between the stairmaster and extreme I would get the stairmaster because I like a softer board. Now between all three I would get the Horrorscope. The flat kick is amazing. Once you go from a cambered board to a rocker/flat kick board you will probably never think about going back. I know personally I will never get another cambered board.

tell us a little more about your riding please. i agree with peterG, flat kick is amazing. i got the sierrascope and it seems to get better everytime im on it. the horrorscope and the sierrascope arent a lot higher than a stairmaster and i havent even seen the price of the extreme yet but i wanted to get the stairmaster and after some advice from some more experienced riders here i ended up getting the sierrascope for cheaper than the stairmaster and i couldnt be happier.

Ya I'm just a pretty balanced park rider. I'll do both jumps and rails so I'm just looking for a board that will be good for both. Idk I keep changing my mind on if I wanna try fk or just stick with traditional camber

Alright, I was about to get a horrorscope, then changed my mind to go to regular camber, then changed my mind again back to horrorscope.

i agree but i got mine on sale and it was cheaper than the horrorscope when i bought it. sierra is running a sale right now and the horrorscope is a bargain.

Are the Stairmaster, Sierrascope and Horrorscope all designed for the park?

They are all short boards - 155 or 156 is the longest they make.

kinda. the sierrascope has the shape of the horrorscope, the carbon x stringers from the indoor (for better stability at high speeds), and the core from the greenwood. its a beefed up park board. you can take it anywhere but it still good in the park. i have yet to see one bad review on it, i LOVE mine like i have posted in every thread sayin so.
