looking for a discussion on these two models. Comparing the the 155 basic and the 156 jackpot these boards seem similar. I like the sintered base on the jackpot, however the basic has the underbite going for it. I've been leaning towards the basic to save a bit of cash but the price difference isn't bad. Thoughts?
Yeah, the main point of difference is definitely the base!!!!!
If ya the type that religiously waxes ya board so ya can be as fast as ya want, go the Jackpot!!!!!
Havin said that, the Basic is a super fun, do anythin board to ride!!!!!
Depending on how long I spend on the hills (I try and stay out all day) I wax before every use. Such a difficult decision! If I find a jackpot on sale next month I'll probably grab it over the basic. can't make up my mind!
