Smile signal flat park vs. capita horrorscope fk

okay si im looking to get a new board for next season. right now i have an 08/09 skate banana and im just not a huge fan of the banana rocker, its just got no pop. also i want to get something a little softer.

im 5'10 and about 155 lbs and i spend the majority of my time in the park

i was looking at the 2012 signal flat park and the 2012 capita horrorscope fk, from what i know the rocker on the capita isnt like the rocker on the skate banana?

any info would be greatly appreciated

The rocker on the CAPiTA is like a blend between normal FK like on the Indoor and BTX. The flat zone between the feet is from insinde insert to inside insert. I found it to be horribly unstable and awful overall.

As for you're two options, just on durability alone I would go Signal. Its a more durable sintered base, the topsheets are strong, the board itself is stronger... The Park Flat is a really well done board capable at the whole mountain, then to go jib your face off.

It bends? What are you looking for it to be? More specific than that please.

like on a scale of 1-10, 1 being the softest 10 being the stiffest, where does it fall is what i mean.

I hate numbers. They don't do anything or help. My Nitro SubPop is softer overall than like the Bataleon Disaster, but locks in a carve better. The Blacklist is stiffer than the Kink but for a good rider will lock into a press easier and better.

Give me conditions, riding styles, and board comparisons and I can help.
