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.

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.
