capita stairmaster

i've been looking into the capita stairmaster and i think im going to buy it. ive read some mixed reviews about its flex. on the-house.com it rates it in a 1 being soft and 10 being stiff scale a 3-4. and the reviews ive read about it say that it isnt as soft as they thought. i want to start getting into the park more and hitting boxes and rails as well as some jumps. i just want to know if anyone has had any experience with this board and could give me some feedback. thanks

Well I ride a horrorscope and from what I've heard they are pretty much the same aside from the RC. To say the least head over heals for my horrorscope so if your looking for a traditional camber board go for it. Pretty soft though

I've got one, it's pretty damn noodly and soft. I'd call it a solid 3-4 just like the house. Rides good on jumps and rails, excels pretty much anywhere in the park but gets somewhat chattery and higher speeds, but nothing you wont be able to handle.

I got this years new Stairmaster - I am really enjoying this board. I'm having a lot of fun with it, its very forgiving in the park and on the trail. Last weekend I was banging out 20 foot table tops with ease, it seems to land very well, its a light board as well. I got it about half way threw the season, this is my 6th year board. There is only one thing negative for me:

This is not a high speed board, it seems to wash out a bit when I really get bookin' down the hill.. Its a 152, that may have something to do with it. Other than that I'm really glad I got the stairmaster

so this board would be good for park but not so much for all mountain riding?

I use it for everything at the moment, but it's def. a board oriented for park riding.

Ive rode the 09 stairmaster all season and i must say that this board is everything i could ever want and more in a park stick. It locks onto any rail you put infront of it and if you cant press it i advise switching to skis lol. i hit 20 to 30 ft kickers all day and i never have had that washed out feeling a lot of people get with some other park boards. i took it to CO and it def is not a powder board but its not impossible to ride the rest of the mountain on. If your riding anywhere on the east coast i can almost be certain that no "hill" will be to much for this board.

it is prob one of the stiffer "jib" boards, but in terms of all boards it prob ranks around a 3 or 4 out of 10 where a WWW would be a 2 or 1.7 lol

Too Fast!

I rode a Stairmaster all over Winter Park and in the back woods of Mary Jane in some gnar-bar moguls and steeps. I thought that it handled great. I'd call it an all mountain park board.
