Default Budget snowboard help

I need help choosing my first board and have noticed a nice price tag of $160 on a Morrow Clutch (2009)

Morrow Clutch Snowboard 2009 : Snowboards | evo outlet

Any comments about the morrow clutch? (I really just want a good looking snowboard for snowboarding, i am done with rentals...)


or i can get something cheaper or about the same price here:

Men - SportChek.ca

if i should go with something from here, what should it be??

my budget is no more than 180 for just the board, and there is nothing used that i can find that is normal...

thanks

Go with last year's model on a respectable brand.
I've seen Ride Control's around that price, and if you look around I'll bet you can find some even better deals.
(I'm not sure if it's still there, but there was a Sierra Crew (not sure if it's your size) AND bindings for $200)

Evogear has some stuff in their outlet store, as well as checking out Ebay and Craigslist and whatnot...
(Don't forget about your local stores either!)

Also, it'll help if you tell us what you plan on doing with the board (Park, Backcountry, Groomers?).

Try to stay away from Morrow.
Sierrasnowboard has some good boards around that same price.

Ride Control Snowboard and Bindings! 148cm on eBay.ca (item 110485944116 end time 01-Feb-10 19:00:02 EST)

i found this, but i am afraid 148cm is perfect now, but i am only 16 and will probably grow a bit more

also, is LTD any good of a company?

A good board will last you a long time. I'd suggest you not cheap out. Here's a good bang for your buck Sierra Crew - Snowboards Reviews & Sale | SierraSnowboard.com

either that or you look on www.craiglist.com or www.kijiji.com
