Lib Tech Dark 158 or Gnu Altered Gentics 158

I am a 5' 10, 195lb rider. I ride mostly all mountain, like to hit cliffs, trees, and once in ahwile the park. I would say my riding ablity is advance, I ride mostly in the northwest and colorado. Just wondering which board would be a better all mountain board, or if anyone had any other boards they would recommend.

well, I would definitely take the dark then. The C2 is a copy of NS's RC tech which will give you more pop than the BTX will.

look at the NS SL-r as well. The damping system NS uses is amazing for plowing through chop and surfing over run out pow lines, yet the SL-r flexes enough to do the occasional park line top to bottom. That'd be my choice in a 158 or 161
