Ride kink or Capita horrorscope

I know the horrorscope says its got a 3/10 and the kink is 5/10.. but everyone says the kink is super flexy.

Im looking for a pure jib board and like small jumps I can get the kink for 250 and the scope for 310...

The Kink is flexy but not crazy, I still charge on it. I'd say 4/10. Really solid shape though I've never felt better all around then on this board.

I'm always strictly on rails and I ride a horrorscope and love it. It is definitely the choice if you spend all day jibbing. I've ridden my friends kink a few times and feel it's a little more stiffer, not darasticly but enough to make a difference. If you hit the park and do jumps just as much as rails go for that but from what you said if you're mostly on rails and only some small jumps the horrorscope should work perfectly fine.

The kid living on my couch right now broke 4 Horrorscopes last year. One he broke in a week. Their weak and wildly unstable.

Get the Kink, a K2 Weapon, or Bataleon Disaster.

You should be able to find last years Endeavor Color up there in the great white north. Its a really solid jib stick. Super soft but enough snap to pop out of the jibby jibs.

Yee but, i need a wide board :/ so thats why my options are kinda wack.. or a capita stair master for 270 also

could get the ride crush.. or dc focus.. kinda long like 155w.. im 6'2 but i like shorter

edit: the crush is 153 so it might be good? its softer then the kink

It's not softer than the Kink, it just has rocker. So it feels a bit softer. Decent board. Kink is better in my opinion.
