Default GNU park pickle or Capita Horroscope?

I can't deside..... Im gonna ride the whole mountain but mostly park. Is the Park P really any better then horroscope with the heelside thing and the magna traction? Is it really worth 100+ dollars? Plz help.

Uhh, your eyes are decieving you, the deeper heelside sidecut is not that noticable with the eye, if you can see it at all. Now, I havent ridden the pickle but I have ridden one of the Santa Cruz boards that had the deeper heelside sidecut. Its noticable, but I wouldn't freak out about it. Unless you really hate how much less leverage you get on your heelside and mentally gripe about it evertime you turn, then its a small bonus at best. I'd take that extra $$ you save NOT buying a HYPE board and get a good set of gloves or a grip of quality socks...

Personally I don't like Magne for park. If I wanted to lay Euro carves then sure, but for park I don't like the hook that is characteristic of Magne.

Horrorscope. Although, something more comparable to the Pickle in the CAPiTA line is the Indoor FK, still like $90 less, but it has a sintered base and some carbon in between the bindings making it a little stronger outside the park than the Horrorscope. Or in between the Horror and the Indoor is the Ultrafear or Sierrascope. Just like the Stair Extreme is a beefed up Stair, the Ultrafear/Sierra is a beefed up Horror.

I must say all that was well said .
the only thing i disagree about is the magna i ride alot of park and butter its up on those boxs . and never got that hook . so i never sharpen my edge do to the park riding . but when u get hit with that ice windy day i love my magna ..

just my 2 cents tho

I don't know if I was clear or not, just incase there was any misunderstanding.

When I said hook, it related to the way it carves on piste/in the park, for me it didn't have enough level of sensitivity. Its minimal level of "grip" in a carve was too much for me. This of course is all kinda hard to explain though...

Of course this is also just my $.02
