Arrow K2 Believer or Nitro T1?

Hi there!
I want to ask you if you could help me with me decision, because i want to consider buying a new board.
The K2 Believer 154 or the Nitro T1 153, both from the 08/09 Season on sale (50%!!!).

The facts are:
Bindings: Rome 390s 08/09
Style: 99% park -> Rails: 66% Jumps 33%
I'm 174 cm big, google says: 174 centimeters = 68.503937 inches = 5.70866142 feet
weight: 62 kilograms = 136.686603 pounds
my feet: Europe 41 = England Man 7.5 = Us/canada Man 8

I thought, that the T1 was more one of the ultimate park boards, not only because most isenseven dudes have it, the nitro homepage says it so too.
K2 Believer is more freestyle, but also it's possible to make it in the park, but it was the best Transworld Good Wood board. So what do you think I should get?

Greetings from Munich

i never ridden the k2 but i rode the T1 and i loved it. i liked how it wasnt a noodle of a park board but you could still use your weight a little to press it and butter around with ease. i think the would def be the better option for a more all around freestyle riding.

I'll throw in my comments on the Believer (never rode the T1). The Believer is a stiffer board which, if taking it into the park, would be a great board for the pipe and jumps rather than for rails. If you're looking for an all around park board from the K2 lineup, I'd look into the Darkstar/Parkstar. Outside the park, the Believer is a great board for freestyling: the carbon stringers in the tip and tail give it some great pop, the lightened tip and tail also allow you to swing the board around easily, but it does require you to develop some skill if you're looking to do some pressing.

The best is to ride both (Ti and Believer) and see which you like best or wait for someone who has ridden both to provide you with a review.

The Believer is still a freestyle board, but not necessarily park. Like DC5R said, its good in the pipe and jumps.

If your looking for an all park the board, the Darkstar, and its RC brother the Parkstar are a little softer but run in the same vein. I own the Darkstar and its a very fun board. I dont know alot about Nitro

Thanks for the replies!
I've just ordered the Nitro T1, because it's more the jib board and that's more my style atm.
furthermore it's 44 euros cheaper, form which I could spend 1 more day on the mountain
or 44 cheeseburgers

If the T1 is a jib board, I don't know if I'd want to be hitting kickers with it - just my $0.02. Then again, at 140lbs and with a 153, you'll probably be fine.

if you know how to ride you can hit jumps with anything. maybe not 80 footers but if you're hitting those you're not asking these questions
