2012 Arbor Draft vs Capita Horrorscope vs Rome Artifact Rocker

I'm a park rat trying to figure out my new board for the season. I ride bear mtn and am looking to do jumps and up my rail game. I'm 5'8 165 lbs sz 9. I don't think that there are many differences between the 3 boards but I wanted to see the opinions on each of these boards.

Thanks for your guys help.

Actually the're very different. The Arbor is the softest and has bronze edges. The Horror has UrbanFK which I found to ride like poo. If you want to jump neither of those are going to work all that well. The Artifact is the one that is most jumpable. However, have you considered a Signal Rocker light? As jibbable but I found it better on jumps. Faster sintered base too. It would be my pick.

Snowboarding Is...

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

Only one on that list that I've been on that I found was solid was the Artifact.

Angry Snowboarder Because someone has to call it how they see it!

Thanks for the input. I'm thinking towards the Artifact cause I don't want it to soft but sturdy enough for 20 - 30 footers max.

I'm not sure about Signal but I would like to demo the board first. I've never heard anything on Signal yet.
