Default GN Rider's Choice for relative noob?

I'm just getting to where I can link my turns alright. I'm saving until the bigger sales at the end of the season and was really digging what I've read about the rockered Mervin boards (for beginners and pros). I want to ride all-mountain, and when I get better start hitting some backcountry. I wanna go fast and carve hard. I'm not real interested in jibbing, though the jumps look like fun.

What do you guys think about the GNU RC with BTX for someone at my level? I was also thinking about throwing some Union Force bindings on it. I really like the build quality on them.

Thanks!

Peace

Yeah I think I might have misunderstood what I have been reading about it.

A friend of mine is strongly recommending a GNU Carbon High Beam MTX. I like the price of it, that's for sure. Back to researching!

Banana is not something you want for fast carving.
