    Looking for a good jump deck, looking for input.   

     So this last season i was riding a 151 Capita Ultrafear which was great for jumps until the got bigger than 40-50ft. So i am looking at getting a cambered board under 155.
    Im looking at a Capita SMX or TFA, or possibly a Bataleon Evil Twin. Anyone rode any of these decks and know how they handle jumps? Or any suggestion on other boards? Thanks!

    the real question is how you handle jumps, not the board. that being said, if you were doing fine on your ultrafear, it seems like all you're really looking for is a slightly larger cambered that's not necessarily a ton different other than that. the TFA is a lot stiffer and will be a very different ride. personally i would suggest the stairmaster extreme or a cambered outdoor. the NAS/quiverkiller model would be good too. outside of capita, i think you're just looking for a classic mid flex cambered twin, which is about as textbook as you can get, ie you have a million options.

    Rome mod? Agent? Just putting others out there that aren't capita. If you want to stay in capita the SMX is the perfect big jump board.

    As Spenser said, there are a million mid flex cambered twins.

     why not just go capita mindblower. same exact board as the ultra just a little stifferdue to the carbon in it.

    the problem with the mindblower is that it's not a cambered board, which was his first criteria.

    there was a 52 for sale on here for a while, good price and really tempting for me. not sure if it's still available, though.

    ditto. He wanted to sell it because it was a little too big for him. Loved the deck, just wants smaller.

    What up Alka?

     The SMX is pretty awesome. If you are open to other brands the Nitro T1.5 is very similar.

    id go with the SMX as well if you want to stick with capita. how do you feel about hybrid camber? in my experience the protoCT from never summer kills it on jumps and is super durable
