2014 Burton Mystery or 2015 model

Can anybody give me their opinion if you've had experience on either? Seems like good deals on both. The 2014 is obviously cheaper. Specs seems very similiar but I want to make sure. If one is a better ride, please let me know. Budget is not an issue.

Thanks

I know that makes sense but the only other board I'm holding out for is next years antler. Looks so sweet.

Can't speak to those specific years but I have a Flying V mystery and a Vapor (cambered as all vapors are).

They both weigh nothing, and are super precise, lightning fast edge to edge, a joy to ride.

I suspect that the 2014 mystery is pretty much same as 2015, assuming you're looking at cambered in both years.

I have a 2014 Mystery camber (162cm) and it's an awesome board. Excellent for carving and holding an edge on ice. Great in the pipe and good in pow too.

I just got back from 4 days of great riding at Kickinghorse in BC (snowed 30cm on the last two days) - the second day was sunny and super warm so the bottom half of the mountain got very soft. On the third day the temp dropped and it started snowing up top...but the bottom was a sheet of ice. I ended up coming down to the bottom and was riding a black diamond when I hit the ice. It was a bit sketchy in places but the Mystery handled it no problem and I made it down without any issues.

On the top of the mountain I headed down some bowls where the pow was mid-thigh deep and the board was great. Really good float and handled the fresh along with any tracked out areas like a dream.

The board is light as a feather and works great for flat land tricks like butters and is solid as a rock in jumps. It's even good in moguls. I love it and would buy it again anytime...and I paid full price for it.

I've never tried the 2015 but you can't go wrong with either in my opinion.
