Default What board should I get?

I am deciding between two boards. I am 6 ft tall, 175 lb, 12 feet. I am deciding between a 156 capita backstab and a 157 forum. I plan on riding half park and half freeriding.

CAPITA BACKSTAB 156

There also looks like quite a bit of setback on that Forum, which probably wouldn't be ideal for you if you plan on doing park half the time.

How much are they asking for these? I don't know about that Forum but I know the Capita is older than 2009.

In unridden condition I wouldn't pay more than $100 for either.

Their asking for $60 for the Capita and $45 for the forum. I just need a board that wont have toe overhang and the guy selling the capita said he had none wearing a 12 in. boot. I have the same size. I cant check it out yet because I gotta drive 1.5 hrs out to get it.

Would both those prices be decent deals?

Im from Aus, live in norway now. both really expensive countries as far as snowboarding and other things go. So $60 would be an absolute steal for me. but the US is packed full of heaps of cheap shit and loads and loads of people offloading second hand gear so im not sure. to me its a case of beer, so id grab it
