Default Just picked up 2009 burton deuce

Hi, newbie to the forum here!

Just found a 2009 159 burton Deuce at dicks sporting goods for $141. I'm stoked about the $ but not sure about the board style. I'm upgrading from my 2001 Burton Charger (161cm). I can tell (just by pushing and leaning against) that this new board is has a lot more flex than my old charger.

I'm about 5'11", 240lbs. Do you guys this this board would suit me?

I dont do park (jumps, rails, half pipe, etc). I'm more into all-mountain any conditions. I havn't kept up with any newer technology in regards to snowboarding. I've just been riding 4-6 times per year on my charger.

Any advise would be greatly appreciated. I know lots of people are pushing away from Burton, but my 2001 charger was pretty good for me. I liked the never summer (sl?) board but all those boards were spec'd out at like $500 and this was a bargain deal.

thanks!
