which board should I sell?

Ok guys, this is killing me. I don't know which board to keep and which to sell. I just got my hands on an '09 Horrorscope 152. This thing is in the most amazing condition I have ever seen (besides a brand new board). It couldn't have been taken on more than 1 run. Then on the other hand I have a 2010 Ride Kink 147. Brand new board, I just took it out of the plastic a few days ago. I don't know what to do! I know one of these guys has to go... but WHICH?!

If I were going to sell the Horrorscope, I don't think I could let it go for anything less than $260. If you guys don't think that's possible then my mind is made up. I'm also not sure how much I could get for the Kink though. I need you guys to weigh in.

PS, I've already got a DH2 for my all-mountain/park/jump board. This board would just be for park.

Wow that's a tough choice. Why don't you strap into both of them and see which has the feel the you like for jibbing, i.e. longitudinal and torsional flex.

That's the thing, I've ridden the 09 Kink and another Horrorscope before. I LOVE them both. Kink is camber'd, and I like the fact that you preload the board and can really pop off of it. But I really like the way the FK feels, it's definitely very skate influenced which I totally dig.

I like the fact that the Horrorscope is a more rare board that I won't see a ton of people with too. Not that I see a whole lot of Kink's out there. And I like the Kink's color changing topsheet, it's very interesting. I love the way both boards look, they're the tits.

I decided what I'm going to do is post both for sale. I want to keep the Horrorscope more, but if I get my asking price of $285 then I'll be forced to sell it.
