Default Ride Cue vs. Burton Charger

Hi all,

I was hoping to get advice on two used boards that I was handed down. I have a Ride Cue 156 (from around 2005ish) and a Burton Charger 156 (from around 2000-2002ish). I was looking to keep one to ride on and sell the other to make space, and I'm not sure which is the "better" board. I know that Burton has the better name, and that the Burton board is in better condition than the Ride (Ride has some dings in the topsheet and a semi-significant scratch on the bottom side, while the burton is virtually brand new).

I'm not sure if boarding tech improved drastically between 2000-2005, so was wondering if someone out there with more knowledge could advise me on which to keep? I'm an intermediate rider (blues are nice and easy, blacks I can do relatively well as long as it's not too mogul-filled or icy), and I haven't started doing park stuff yet (probably going to start trying jumps and such this season).

The specs that I could find online for both boards are:

Ride Cue:
* SHAPE: Directional
* SIDECUT: Radial
* 90 Degree Full Con - Cap
* Progression Core
* Biaxial Fiberglass
* 1000 Grade Extruded Fusion Base
* Fusion Tip and Tail
* Patented True-Flex Inserts
* Dual Resin System

Burton Charger:
Effective Edge
11600
Length
15150
Product Year
Jan 1 1999
Side Cut Radius (1)
785
Waist Width
2450

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

-Vince
