figure out what your other options would be- if you're just getting in to the sport, then a bullet may be a great board for you. especially since you're not going to have to shell out any cash for it, just a trade. you shouldn't spend big money on an advanced board before you are ready, it might actually slow your progress, not help it.
I'm riding a bullet with custom bindings right now, and it's ok. entry level board, but it means i'm out there. I'm definitely ready to upgrade, and will be doing so when I make a trip back to the USA later this year. but the Bullet was available and affordable for me at the time, so it was a good choice.
