Capita Horrorscope FK vs Burton Custom V-Rocker and Toe Drag?

Hi guys,
I'm deciding between buying a 2009 Capita Horrorscope FK 152 or a 2010 Burton Custom V-Rocker 154.
The burton has been quoted to me for $440, whereas the Capita is $499. (both prices including postage)
I'll be riding with Rome 390 bindings. Is it the 2009 Capita Horrorscope FK that won the Good Wood award, or the 2010, or are they the same?

I'm about 65kgs and 6ft tall.. And I'm looking for a board I can take in the park and also shred the trails at falls and buller (australian resorts), and possibly head to NZ soon

Which board would be better for me and which is a better deal?

Also my foot size is 10.5 us, and i'm a little worried about toe/heel drag.. do you think i'd have problems? I've heard the Ride Boots have smaller footprints, so I will be getting a pair of those.. but I don't know how much difference they would make.

Thanks!

2009 Horrorscope for $500? Where do you live that postage would cost that much....

I would sell you a 2010 155w and ship it to you for that most likely haha. Mines got maybe 10 days on it

Sorry, those are all australian prices..
That's $500 AUD including postage.. all up USD = 430.50 for the capita and 379.0160 for the burton

also a 155w is heaps big for a freestyle board amirite for my size.
otherwise I would take you up on that offer xD

are there any major differences in the 2010 and 2009? or mainly just the graphic?

155cm Isn't that big for someone 6ft. I deffinetly wouldnt go any bigger, but I'm 5'7 and have been riding a 156cm park board forever. Of course the new board im gonna get will be 153cm, but just saying.

the capita is a mid wide so you shouldn't worry about overhang even with the non wide version. i have size 11's on the 151 and its fine

You really don't have to worry about toe drag until you start getting near US size 12. Even then, depending on your angles you could be perfectly fine...

I'm assuming that Burton is shipping you some sort of convertor along with the board for your bindings? Or do you already have one?

? I have no idea, do you need a converter for burton boards because of that channel crap?
Uh oh! :S

If you're buying in a store you could always try the boots on the board first to see if they have any toe/heel drag.
