Default What to do?

With all these 2010 boards going on sale, I'm thinkin hard on wat I should purchase for next season. Im looking for a freestyle board (the best board for the best price). I have it narrowed down to about 5 boards, let me know what you think out of the three or if you have any suggestions. Keep in mind im 6"0 and weigh about 155.

1. 2010 Burton Blunt 153-156
2. 2010 Sierra Stunt 153-156
3. 2010 Flow Era 153-156
4. 2010 Burton Hero 153-156
5. 2009 LTR-L 153-156




P.S. Keep suggestions around the same price range as these boards

Unless you've already got EST bindings, or are willing to buy new bindings, I would eliminate the Burton Hero. Burton ICS boards are fine if you're looking to adopt the whole system, but not if you already own gear (either non-Burton, or Burton non-ICS/EST) that you want to move from board to board.

Sierra Stunt is basically the same as the Blunt

I already understand this. I am going to buy a completely new set-up...so whatever board i get i will be buying new bindings to go with.

I quite like my Rome Postermania, not bad for the price.

How well does it ride in the park, and do you like the flex? But it does look like a solid board for $225.00... Definately gona keep this 1in mind

Rome boards are great jib sticks...uber soft.

If you are looking for something with more pop, try a Capita Indoor Survival or Sierrascope.

If you go with a Burton ICS board be sure you can find EST bindings you like, the selection is very limited everywhere right now. I picked up a Burton ICS board cheap on Sierra but I'm having a hard time finding EST bindings to put on it. Right now I've got some regular Cartels mounted on it with adapter disks.

I'm not even going to deny it. The 2011 Hero I demoed was a very fun stick. There has been some minor upgrades so I'm sure the 2010 rides just as nicely. What's even more is both the board and bindings were too big for me. It was a 156 wide and I only wear size 10 boots. Still, this board was so fun to ride. I can only imagine the edge to edge on the correct size for me. Pop was decent and flex was damn good. Super playful board in my opinion.

I also second that Rome boards are softies. I don't jib so they are too soft for my tastes.

I tried my friend's 2009 Hero, really soft and light. The V-rocker will help with ground tricks, and held an edge pretty well on the mountain.

I have the sierrascope and really like it. Flex is comparable to the Hero BUT the Hero seemed easier to butter because of the V-rocker whereas the Sierrascope is flat between the bindings. It also holds an edge well and can take it anywhere
