I think you are fine with the BG. Everyone really seems to like it. I wish Mervin did full wrap around edges. At least on their split line. Probably a non issue. There is just a lot more small impacts. Skinning and such. Then again if you delam it, probably means a new board. That ain't bad.
I've been lucky to be able to take out several different splits over a season. Ultimately it is best if you can try before you buy. So if you know what you are getting not a bad idea to go with it.
For the Solution. Was that a current season model? I was under the impression that the run two seasons ago had problems, but last year was fine overall. The carbon Solution sure looks nice but damn that would suck if it had construction issues after dropping that amount of cash.
