Question Need quick advice on these boards

From an ad in our internal classifieds:

BOARDS DC Tone 153 (blue digi print) $150 DC Devun Walsh 157 (black on black) $150 DC MLF 158 (missles/mtn lab graphic) $100 DC PBJ 153 $50!!!! needs a base grind,,which is 15$ at boardroom, but otherwise,,greatshape T9 bindings are new $50

No info on the year of the boards. I'm slightly concerned that I can't find a web page for DC about their boards (or it's well hidden). I'd appreciate a quick and dirty opinion on the boards, and how old is acceptable.

Not sure why you can't....DC 2010-2011 – Shayboarder.com

I was looking at the MLF, but I found a better deal...seems like a solid option for all around/mountain.

Depends on what size board you need and what kind of riding you are doing. I would stay away from 6+ year old boards.

Sounds pretty cheap, I don't think DC makes spectacular boards but from what I've heard they are pretty decent. Heard buzz about the DC PBJ, I think it's a jib board.

And it looks like they are updating their site for 2011 stuff, because I found exactly where their snowboards should be on their site and the page is out of order, which means they are updating it.

One of those boards might be worth it just for a thrasher since they're cheap.

As usual, I am speaking with both feet in my mouth -- or in this case I guess both hands...

I meant that I couldn't find a web page from the manufacturer. Plenty of third-party references. I still trust the opinions of the people on this forum more.
