Sierrascope or 09 SL-R/Evo?

Hi guys, I'm a begginner and I'm looking at picking up a board that I can ride the mountain with and also ride the park with. I was looking at Neversummer's Sl-R, Evo-R, and Circuit-R, and the Sierrascope. However, all those Neversummer boards are out of my price range (I would not like to spend more then $300) and so I was thinking of trying to find an unused 09 model of any of those which should be around 300. I've heard a lot of good things about the 2010 Sierrascope, and I can use the discount code on Sierrasnowboard.com to bring it down to 300$, but the graphic on it, to be 100% blunt, looks very bad. It'd be hard to find a new 09 model of any of those NS boards, so my question is should I just go with the Sierrascope with it's poor graphics (in my opinion) or search for those 09 models?

I'm also purchasing Burton Mission bindings, would these work fine with Nidecker Boots and any of those NS boards or the Sierrascope?

P.S. Some advice on what size I should be looking at would also be nice, I weigh about 140 pounds, I am 5 foot 11 inches tall, and my boot size is 10.5.

grahpics don't help you jib. Sierrascope FTW. take the $$$ you'd save and get some real (non-Burton) binders.

Get the 152, btw

If NS boards are out of your price range go for sierrascope. Its upgraded horroscope. And pls dont choose board beacuse of graphic:X That 'sick' graphic its like signature of capita boards and ur not looking on it , ur riding it:P Like somebody said ...if u can see the graphic on your board ur doing it wrong:P

sierrascope is my all time favorite board ( and I own an SL-R too ).... you may have trouble fnding older NS boards and if you do find one make sure you get the reverse camber ones as last year there was a mix of reverse and regular of each model. IMO Capitas FK tech gives a better ride than NS camber/rc blend but all thats just personal preference.. size wise the sierra is only offered in the 152 and 156 sizes .. im 6 foot and ride the 156 but at 140 maybe the 152 is more for you ... if you decide on the NS route id say the Evo(soft) or the Circuit(softest) would be a better choice the SLR is the stiffest of the three.

I love my sierrascope, that being said i wasnt huge on the graphics when i saw it online but when i got it i changed my mind. These graphics look soo sick. My base was also reversed so it was purple base with black letterscand i like it much better this way. I'm 6 foot 160 and ride the 156. You should get the 152

Sounds like Sierrascope is the way to go , thanks guys. And you're right, graphics really don't matter. I'd go for nicer bindings but my budget isn't really large so the cheap Burton Mission ones are the ones I'm probably going to have to stick with unfortunately . My only question now is will the Burton Mission bindings be compatible with the Sierrascope?

NorthEastBoarda and burritosandsnow, how much do you guys weigh?

I'm about the same as you but I'm about 155 and I rock a Revolver-R 156W as a all-moutain/park board... With that said its flexible but not noodly...and the Revolver-R is the same thing as the evo-r but just wide ...and for craps sake don't buy burton... get flux's or unions ))...than again thats my opinion
