Thinking about buying a new one so any thoughts or comparisons are appreciated.

Cheers.
The Riders Choice line was simplified from last year. It had been available in Pickle or Symmetrical and Wide (all of which got a a unique graphic). That ended with a lot of confusion at the customer level. This year the RC is a single model with one (sick) graphic. It is Pickle (different heelside sidecut than toeside sidecut but with symetrical tip and tail) but not Ass Pickle (different heelside sidecut than toeside sidecut with asymetrical tip and tail). This years model was not supposed to have changed from last years pickle version but it does look like some (very subtle) refining of the profile and the magnetraction may have occurrerd.
