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.
That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
