K2 Slayblade or Capita Totally Fn awesome?
Narrowed down getting a new board to these two (as I can get them both cheap) and wanted peoples opinions please.
Im 5'10'', 220 lbs, 11us boot.
Previous boards Imperium DJVI 156 and NS Proto CT 157 and I currently own a Burton Nug.
I only get to ride twice a year mainly in France. The nug covers my small, nimble dicking around board so I wanted something else that was big, hard, good for carving and especially fast.
Ill be doing mainly groomers, ice and afternoon slush with a small amount of pow and small amount of freestyle on the mountain. I hardly ever touch the park and Id probably use the nug for it if I did.
So from what I have learnt so far both these boards are very quick, stable and hold edge well. The TFA seems to be better freestyle wise but the Slayblade might be faster and better for long hard carves?
Unfortunately I cannot demo either of these boards at this time so any insight greatly appreciated.
