Default Capita Ultrafear vs. Arbor Westmark

Trying to decide between these 2 boards. Suggestions? I understand they are kinda similar - all mtn. freestyle. In terms of reliability, which do you think will hold up better? I've never had an Arbor board, but I have used a Capita board, the Horrorscope, which I still possess. I also have a 2011 NS Evo. I will be getting rid of the Evo though. I'm gonna pair this board up with Burton reFlex Genesis bindings.

I think that instead of getting an Ultra or Westmark since you already have a horror, get a Coda.

Otherwise, Westmark.

That Ultrafear gets really soft in the tip and tail. To the point you can fold it in half. So if you are looking for something stiffer than the Horoscope, go with the Westmark.

Okay, so I've changed my mind. Ultrafear or Super Hero?

On paper, Superhero. Squeezebox, frostbite (which with flat top should actually work), flat to rocker, and blunty tips. I have high hopes for it.

The Ultrafear is only just stiffer than your Horror.

I've ridden the original Hero (4 of my friends have it, haha!), and it is similar to my Horror. Since the Super Hero is its replacement, I wonder how much different it is with pretty much the Nug tech thrown into it. I do like that I can downsize (wanted to try the Nug) and that the width of the board is wider than usual. So Super Hero it is? What do you think of the EST Genesis bindings to pair with it?

Really? I've heard great things about the Genesis. My friend has the Cartels. I have the reg. cartels on my Horrorscope. I have also tried the malavita and I like them, too. But these new Genesis bindings intrigue me.

They're designed to replace the C02. Would you put CO2's on a medium flex park board? I sure as hell wouldn't.

2013 Cartels are softer than I've ever seen. I think they'll be a super dooper park binding this year.
