Just bought a gnu altered genetics 2010, I dont know what this board is about...

I bought this board today, mainly becouse it was onsale, but my original choice was the lib tech btx trs.. I got it home and couldn't really find any reviews on the altered genetics, it has me thinking I should have went with the Lib tech trs.. Has anyone rode the gnu altered genetics?

I ride all mountain, I like kickers and drops, and just cruising

it's supposedly quite stiff, very light, more like the dark series/trice of libtech.. haven't ridden it myself but always loved the sound of it. just out of curiousity, how much did you get it for?

I paid 469.99 for it. The trs was a littler more, but if the trs was better suited for me I would rather take the AG back and exchange it... I do weigh 215 pounds, so maybe a stiffer board is a little better than a soft one?

My question is why would you pay $500 for a board you know nothing about....

He will say anything to make a sale, especially if it's a harder to sell board.

I'm not hating on the stick as I don't know anything about it, I'm just dumbfounded at spending 5 bills without knowing anything about it.... Trusting a salesman, pheww.

Either way good luck man, I hope it turns out well for you!

I think the altered genetics is Gnu's most high end board if I'm not mistaken. You can check on Gnu's website but I guess it's comparable to Lib's BAnana Magic

I know right! I get a huge thrill from researching and then pulling the trigger.
