Default From GNU to ?

Hi there

I currently have a 154.5 07/08 GNU Riders Choice and its been an amazing board but has seen WAY more days on the hill than it should have and needs replacing.

To keep this short and sweet, I ride all mountain but do not jib and I was/am a fan of egde tech and really noticed the benefit of magnetraction as often conditions where I ride arent amazing.

I think Ive narrowed down a replacement to one of 3 boards but Im aware that since my board was made in 07 (first year of magnetraction I think) cambers have changed a lot as has all the tech.

Im either going to go for this years GNU Riders Choice (154.5), a Lib Tech Jamie Lynn Pheonix (154) or a Yes The Greats (154 or maybe even 152? as I like Peter Line )

My 2 questions are: 1. How does Yes's ultimate grip tech compare to magnetraction ? and 2. What do you experts think about a replacement?

Thanks in advance
