Time for a new board...

So bascially the last two seasons I've been riding the park with my Sierrascope. Its time to pick up something new. I ride around 25% trails and 75% park, and have been looking at a variety of new boards. Most likey going to keep my Ride delta DFC's as well. I have a few here that I would think would mimic the sierrascope the best, maybe a tad bit softer, any experience you have with these or other options would be much appreciated...


--Nitro Sub Zero - seems like a softer board with more pop from what Ive heard.

--'12 Horrorscope - Heard they are going back to the old 09 flex and from the small experience I have with the new FK, I like it, plus my capita has been awesome.


other options: Kink, ET, NS Evo(maybe), or even a 1985 Artifact
Little info about me - 6', 145lbs and ride east coast ice..err snow..
I know most of the 11-12 boards haven't been tested by anyone, but any experience on a 10-11 would help as well.

Thanks in advanced

edit: If you want a real noodle take a look at the bataleon airobic.

I would really look at a Nitro Swindle, Batleon ET, Arbor Westmark, Bataleon Whatever, CAPiTA Green Machine FK, or if you are looking for something a little more like the Horror, a 2012 Signal Park zero cam. They get carbon strips for 2012. I have high expectations for them. I will own one.

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

my two capitas have yet to fail me. I got an ultrafear this year and it has been a lot of fun.

My friend has the horrorscope and says its a great board. The usual complaint for the artifact is that it's too much of a wet noodle. Sorry I can't be more help.

Also, not to hijack your thread but I have a similar question anyways.
5'8.5' 165lbs, currently riding 07 rome agent 155
looking to downsize. candidates so far are

NS: Proto CT
Bataleon: Evil Twin
DC: dunno which one but sponsoring Torstein was a great decision for them lol
Endeavor: BOD or Colour

i'll be getting a 151-153 board depending on what the company make.

Thanks for some ideas, I have been looking at some of the options you gave me and some of the Bataleon's are catching my eye. Looking for a decent RC, a little more than my sierrascope since its kicking out after the edges. Don't want to go for a straight noodle, but since I don't hit huge kickers something softer is what I enjoy playing around with. Looking forward to hearing more about the Bataleon Disaster. The 2012 horrorscope graphics and many others look so bad, its not a huge deal but it still makes a difference.
