Capita Indoor Survival FK vs Bataleon Evil Twin - Which do you keep?

hey guys, if u had to pick 1 board for 75% park and 25% all mountain, which woudl you pick?

2011 Capita Indoor Survival FK in 156

vs.

2011 Bataleon Evil Twin Artist Edition in 154



i am expecting the capita IS to be better all mtn (due to sintered base and flat edge contacts, although bataleons positive camber can be good too?) and the bataleon ET to be better in the park and with jibs/butters especially with it being a little shorter of a board too. i also expect the bataleon to have more pop, despite it being slightly softer and less flexible (5-3-5 flex vs IS's 5 flex). but im sure the capita IS is a great board in the park too... ive also never ridden capita's FK or bataleons TBT so i'd be very curious to compare them as well.


so would you pick the capita indoor survival, or the bataleon evil twin? or, make the argument to keep both if you think they both bring diff things to the table!

thanks guys, but i was curious as to what YOU guys would do if u were in my shoes. this is obviously a very opinionated question and i have and will develop my own opinions but i really wana know what other peoples opinions are too. let me know what you guys think! itd be interesting to see other people's views..most of u probably know alot of stuff i dont know and vice versa, so theres always something new to learn from another persons perspective.

peace!
