Ride Control or Nitro Swindle for beginner

So I have a chance to get either a 2007 Ride Control 155 or 2009 Nitro Swindle 157. I'm pretty much just starting out(went up a few times late last season). I know the swindle is a park board and the control is an all mountain, but I weigh about 175 and am wondering if I can go with the swindle as an all mountain? I will be hopefully doing some park when I get a little better. I want the swindle, but not sure if I should go with it. What do you think?
Thanks

im riding this years swindle (152)... it soft (not the softest but soft)
softer will be good for jibing and slower park turns. if you wanna get on some speed... think of something stiffer. maybe the rook from nitro. a plus to nitro is they come with a 2 yr warranty. better than anyone else.
not sure about ride... someone else will have info.

Which is a great except the Circuit-R, Pandora-R, and Evo Grom 142 is only 142. I was reading the little card that came with my board and it said only 1 year limited warranty.
