Default K2 Darkstar 2010 or Burton Blunt 2010?

Well I'm between beginner/intermediate and I've used my friends board all season and I've decided that it's time to purchase a board of my own. Both of them have the Good Wood award, so it's a tough choice. The Burton Blunt has incredibly good reviews but one of my friends says that I shouldn't get a Burton board because they are "overrated". I personally like the design of the Darkstar a bit more but I am leaning towards the Blunt, as the design doesn't really matter to me. I am a 151-152cm just for your information.

Also I'm a freestyle type of rider, I'd consider myself to jib most of the time but I love the jumps too.

Help me out people I need to purchase soon!

The blunt is, IMO, much softer than the darkstar so if you're looking for a jib board, then the blunt it is. However, if you're looking for a jibbable board and considering hitting some bigger kickers, get the darkstar. Better yet, get the parkstar which will have K2's version of rocker.
