Looking for a new park board, possibly a Capita?

Hey guys. Winter is approaching and I'm looking for a new board. I've had a 147 K2 WWW the last couple seasons and it's seen better days. I really liked the WWW but I want to try something new. I'm 5'10", about 135 lbs, and have size 10 boots, so I should be fine without a wide. I was thinking maybe a 151 for length? I liked how playful the WWW was but I want something that would be a little bit more stable for jumps, but still mostly for rails. After some looking around I have taken a liking to the Capita Ultrafear FK. From what I read it is a little bit stiffer than the WWW so it would be more stable and have better pop, and since it is flat with rocker instead of just rocker (like the WWW) it would have better edge hold. Does this seem like it would be a good board for me? Are there any other boards that you guys would recommend? I also was looking at some camber boards but I'm cautious to go back after riding rocker for so long. Thanks in advance for any help!

Get Ultrafear or Indoor Survival/Outdoor Living if youre budget concious.They are way more versataile than WWW

If you're looking at inline gear I'd wait on getting an Ultra till I or others ride it. I feels like they stiffened it up and it is finally stiffer than the Indoor as intended. That said, if it is stiffer then the Indoor is what you wanna look at.

Just a point though, FK is the same rocker style as your Weapon.

I'd also look into the Echelon Killbox, Flow Verve, and Salomon Villain.

I looked into all of the boards you guys mentioned. The swindle seems like it would be even softer than my WWW. I would like a board with a sintered base because the extruded base on my WWW was pretty slow. I am also kinda hesitant to try a rocker/camber hybrid. Do any of you guys have experience riding one? And does 151 to 153 sound like a good size for me? Thanks everyone!

Lobster parkbaord...tbt has a lot of the pros of rocker. The parkbaord is soft but not a total noodle.
I felt very comfortable hitting larger kickers on mine. It its camber but soft enough that it it's easy to press through the camber still

How do you like the tbt? I read that some people love it but others hate it. Is it easier to catch edges on the parkbaord than a rocker board? I'm just afraid of getting something so different than what I'm used to.

They say it makes the board more versataile but I think TBT is hard to advice cuz as cav0011 said above it really depends on person.If you want to try something new,go for it but I really advice trying them before you buy if possible

Okay I have decided that I want a board that is similar to my K2 WWW but with a sintered base. What boards would be good?
