Default 2015 Yes. Basic vs. Jackpot

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?

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!
