It depends. If you want a 2011 model, they're starting to trickle out now. If you want to buy a leftover 2010 model, at this point you're going to have to get lucky. If you were wanting to buy a 2010 model at a deep discount, you should've started looking at toward the end of last season. Generally, the best deals are to be had toward the end of a season. Going into the season, everyone is stoked and looking to get new gear, so there's no big incentive by retailers to put deep discounts out there. They aren't needed. Toward the end of a season, they're trying to blow out all of that season's stuff to make room for next season's stuff.

You have received a lot of good advice in your other threads, it's up to you to consider everyone's input and decide what is best for you. As far as the size, you're just talking about 3 cm. Just get a board and ride and have fun.

i mean i found a 152 for 75 dollars cheaper which means i could buy actually good bindings like rome arsenals instead of of 25 dollars pink bindings that i would have to spray paint because they look gay haha

you're going to keep getting different answers because you're asking for people's opinions. It's up to you to make the final decision.
