Lobster Jib vs Rome Artifact

I am stuck between the Lobster Jib Board 148 The Capita Horoscope 151 wide and the Rome Artifact Rocker 152 wide
My main calling toward the park board is its just as soft as the horoscope and artifact but I can ride it shorter and it has TBT which seems interesting and I want to try it. However Rome and Capita are much bigger names and a more well known company's which makes me afraid to try a smaller lesser known board company. I also have heard a lot of good about the Horoscope Any thoughts and which of these 3 boards do you think is better. I'm 135 pounds and ride park 95% of the time.

Emerica should make snowboard boots

Im a big fan of the TBT so I say go for the Lobster. However, I do believe the Lobster Jib and the Bataleon Disaster are the exact same board except the Bataleon is about 40 bucks cheaper. I could be wrong though, just thought I'd let ya know.

If my info is correct (which it might not be) The Lobster jib is a tiny bit softer than the disaster.

Maybe, but both have the same rating of 8-9-8, either way they're both sick boards.

With those options the Artifact if you need any pop, just get a Bataleon Disaster if you want TBT and for sure that over the Horror. I hated the rocker on the Horror.

Snowboarding Is...

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

I'm pretty sure Lobster and bataleon are made with all the same quality materials at the Elan factory in Austria...which, btw, is where capita is also made (don't know about Rome agent...maybe china). Bataleon/Lobster boards are every bit as high quality as Rome...and probably better than Capita. They all have the same 2 year warranty.

The Lobster and Disaster are the same board in almost every way. TBT=highly recommended.

Thank you for the insight. Im going to go with either the Jib or the Disaster depending on the money situation. If I go with the Jib its really just to ride with the Company I want (Plus Ill admit im a Helgason fanboy)

choice

yeah, the helgasons are urban masters. I saw a FuelTV show in which they said they actually went to a "snowboarding high school"...the school literally specialized in snowboarding! (only in Iceland)

...and, considering they both used to ride for Rome, tells you something about Bataleon/Lobster

OFF TOPIC: I would disagree with you Nivek. I love my new Horrorscope, and I feel the rocker is very fun and playful. Also, the quality is top notch on this board. It can be a little washed out on jumps, but that is a known problem wit rocker, not necessarily Capita's. There are ways to fix it, but I think Capita is taking a simpler 'less tech' go at it, instead of all the banana mtx and vario things.

If I have the opportunity, I would love to try a TBT board as people say quite a lot about them, and the best way to know is to try it for yourself.
