somebody who knows something please help me outtt.
Perhaps earlvb is talking about the 08-09 Banana, which I can confirm has a completely flat base side-to-side. My guess though is you're considering an 09-10 and in that case you're probably right since they've updated them with C2 or whatever it's called. I like my 156 nannerer as it's just stiff enough for jumps but soft enough for presses on rails/boxes but I've never ridden a Horrorscope so I can't really give you any unbiased advice.

actually i think im gonna go with an indoor survival.
it still pretty damn soft, but has more pop and stability due to the carbon x inbetween the bindings.
if only it wasnt so damn ugly.

I'm sure you'll love the Indoor Survival... sick board. I had a 2007 a few years ago, great graphics that year - i agree though, last year and this year Capita has had some terrible looking graphics (and marketing ads). good thing they have a great product and most people can still see that through all the crap.

16 Capita BSOD . 16 NS West . 15 NS Snowtrooper BIA . 13 Salomon Pow Snake
15 Now Drive . 14 Burton Genesis
14 Flow Hylite
