Good catch...I guess I never really glanced at the AB's price and just assumed it was cheaper than the NS (which are generally more $$ anyways right?).
Cost isn't a huge issue but I would like to keep it less expensive if I can. I am more looking towards 2012 boards. At this point I think I've chopped off the Evo. I think it would be too soft for my kind of riding.
Right now the Buckwild (for its price) and the AB (for its performance) are tied for first.
If a 2012 AB landed in my lap I'd scoop it up in a second - I'm finding squat for this thing across all the major online retailers though...
