@Pony - Im not sure its a waste of time to eval and get a board now. Im not really looking to nail the best deal on next years stuff. On the contrary... im looking to get something from this year's stuff at a decent price.
That's why ive been doing the research on current gear. Ill look up those boards and see what i can find about them. Im really leaning towards the a board that has a Rocker so im now leaning towards a board similar to the Hero or other boards with that feature.
@Nixon - Im looking at all options right now. Even if the price is not something i will be willing to pay, then at least i know i have something comparable to research against.
Any suggestion will be appreciated man.
