How much experience do you have? Is it your 1st or 2nd season?

If you're new(ish), keep the current setup. Having a different board based on ice conditions or region is only useful if you have the experience to capitalize on the technology gain. If you're still new, magnetraction isn't going to save you from slams. If anything, it may cause more. And having a Never Summer won't help you link turns.

You may not be new, I could be way off. If so...ignore me.
I went gear crazy last year and it wasn't worth it. I've got 3 boards now and none of them are worth squat after the first time they touch the snow. Save the bankroll for a trip.
