i started with and still have a 5150 imperial from a few years ago. its a great board if your only going twice a year or so.but if you are lucky enough to go alot then dont buy and heres why.the imperial is a little stiff which hauls ass but you get alot of chatter on steeper black diamonds when carving.my best friend is finding that he has maxed out his progression on his 5150.i havent noticed any problems with durability. i upgraded to the ride antic and couldnt be happier. the slimewalls give no and i mean no chatter.its a perfect board for all-mountain.there going for $280 right now.
dont buy something just because of all the HYPE you read on this forum.get whats best for you at the right price.
oh and by the way,get a board with a sintered base,its way faster than extruded or sintruded.
