Something along the lines of a Sierrascope.

So I was planning to buy a 152 Sierrascope but they're all sold out. I was wondering if anyone knows of a similiar board to it. I was interested in a Bataelon board maybe like the Riot or Evil Twin. Want somethin poppy, very playful, easy to butter and press but still can go fast and handle the entire mountain well.

Stats: 5.10 150-155 lbs, boot size 10 (Burton boot has shrink tech)

the sierrascope has the same core as both the green machine and with the carbon x of the indoor..so either of those would ride pretty damn close to it. Its basically just a soft park board.

thanks for not sucking

Not to jack this thread, but do you have experience with the Indoor Survival. I am looking for a new board as well and was thinking about getting that one but i'm not sure what the flex on it is like. I am more into jumping but will do rails/boxes when I come across them so I would like something in the mid-mid/stiff range.

personally, i am going with an evil twin for next year. they are upgrading the base so it is the same as teh riot and it is osfter and twin shaped so its better than the riot in the park and playing around.

mid stiff is about right

It's pretty much made for what your describing.

It's not quite all mountain but not quite a rail stick.... It falls in between

if you are willing to drop the cash you could get the ultra fear, which is the exact same board but it costs more, or you could get the indoor survival which is pretty much the same as the sierrascope except it is narrower. both of them are soft park boards, or stiff jib boards which ever you prefer

I can tell you a little about the indoor survival fk(156) since i own one. First off its mid stiff not a soft park board like the guy said above me. It might feel noodley when you just use your hand to flex it but when you go ride it its different. The nose and tail are really soft but in the center they have those carbon stringers. Someone on here before explained it really well, they said it had a stairmaster extreme center, and a regular stairmaster nose and tail.
I'm not sure about the sierrascope really but hopefully i have helped.
