capita horrorscope vs skate nanner
 
only these 2 boards.
what does each one offer thats different from the other.
im a park rider. basically all jibs rails and kickers. i ride a little powder and some groomers.
which is an all around better board
compare the flex if someone knows.

from what i've heard, the horrorscope pretty much slays anything you throw at it even for being a jib oriented/park board.

I'm not sure how the flex on the Capita is

Naner is pretty noodly, but supposedly has been slightly stiffened up this season.

Capita is regular camber with flaired up edges to keep the control outside of your feet

Naner is rever camber which keeps the control between your feet and makes it feel more like a skateboard


I think the Capita is an all around better board. But if your a skateboarder, you will likely side with the naner. I'm a big guy and have a narrow stance, I want the control area to feel large and help with balance.

Plus Capita is a much smaller company and is much more deserving of someones purchase in my personal opinion.

Ya your right, mah bad. Dunno what I was thinken ( =

they are both pretty much similar board, they both are made for similar concept

cept one has mtx one dont

horrorscope is crazy soft, probably softer nana but still rideable out side of park and holds edges pretty solid

neither one is better then the other, its whatever you like better ( i tent to like horrorscope better but its just me, doesnt

mean you gonna like the same board )

alright true.
cuz i basically want something really fun a playful, but still handles itself everywhere around the park.
well out of those 2 boards at least.
im kinda afraid the banana wont do well on rails since the base is like rounded, it wont lock in as well as the horror.

the horrorscope doesnt have camber... it uses flatkick which means it is flat in the middle then has raised edges after the bindings... i just got a sierrascope cause i wanted something that was a bit beefier. its a bit stiffer than the horror so it can handle itself better on bigger kickers as well as outside the park.

The base of the Banana is flat side to side so it should work just as well on rails (well at least not for that reason). The rocker is along the length of the board.

i know all of the tech and stuff behind both boards. i just need personal experience.
and the base of the banana is not flat side to side, the edges are rounded similar to a skateboard.
somebody who knows something please help me outtt.
