imho...go with a c2btx (riders choice) instead of the CC which is btx (banana). a 153-55 range is good The reason is that, as you progress you will want more control for all over the mtn. It seems that most of us ummm older folks prefer a board that offers lots of control...also the rider's choice will have/allow alot of capicity for progression and you will not need a new board for several years...my2 cents
Fairly steep price increase (~$150), or am I not looking at the right places? As my daughter went with me and has the bug I now have two people to completely set up, so while I don't penny pinch at some point it does become a factor. Whats the significance in the differences in c2 btx and btx?
