I heard some great things about magnetractionn, however, i dont know if it matters or not, but I am most likely not going to be boarding a lot in pow. Shouldl that effect my choice between the two boards?
I own a GNU Carbon Credit 153 and a Yes Great Dudes 154, which, to me is a souped up, stiffer, version of the Yes Basic. You'll have a lot of fun and no problem riding either board in any condition. If you're leaning toward the Yes, by all means, go buy it, you're not missing out on anything with the GNU....unless you ride crappy, icy conditions, then the GNU may be a little bit better, but not markedly enough where it should change your opinion. Also, I believe the YES still has a sintered base, if it does, the Yes wins.

As far as sizing goes. 154-157 at your weight is just dandy for all mountain riding, if that's what you are trying to do.

Uh, what kind of riding are you trying to do?

edit: for possible sintered base on yes basic
