Default capita boards?

Looking at the capita space metal fantasy 2011 board, but the reviews say some have defects. However they are not very specific and I would like a better review before I buy. Let me know what you guys think

Don't remember the sites but just some people complaining the top coat peeled and the screws went through the base. Just wanted to make sure it was just idiots who wreck there stuff and not an actual flaw. I assumed it was people who didn't know what they were doing. Thanks

Sounds like idiots. Capita quality is NOT hit or miss. I have had a few, bomber.

Yea, I have a Capita Horrorscope, and it is top notch. Graphics wise, beautiful. Construction, bomb-proof. Def get it if it checks off in all of your categories.

I've had a couple, their quality IS hit hor miss. They're generally inexpensive for a reason.

Ride a CAPiTA hard and it will die.

Ive seen a fair share of CAPiTA topsheet peels on kids that ride park exclusively.

Rides topsheets dont peel... Maybe a Compact?

My capita indoor lasted one and a half seasons, about 60 days, might have been just a fluke.

I've owned a few capita and they were solid boards. I'm currently on the stairmaster which I expected to have crapped out by now, but it's holding up way beyond expectations. I'm pleased with capita quality thus far.

How you like the stairmaster? What are its strengths?

Graphic?

Same price range you can get a Signal Park with a sintered base, Ride Kink with Slimewalls, Nitro Swindle with rail killer edges, Flow Verve with RC and a super dope sidecut, or a Salomon Drfit Rocker with equalizer, rubber dampeners, and i think some carbon.

The Stairmaster? Camber, with I guess a sawdust core... Its just out of date really.

The CAPiTA's I've had all had soft bases, the sintered and extruded.
