It think for what you'll pay for that board, even the '10, you can find something better possibly for less $$. I know we have it the same price as a DH2 and more than a Machete.

Size depends on your weight. No idea how to give advice without your weight

ah ya of course. i weigh about 165

and i was considering getting last years model because it'd be probably signifcantly cheaper and how much they possibly have changed in a year? Although my roomate does work at a ski barn so i was gonna see what kind of discount he could hook me up with.

For a park board I would look at 154ish size.

I get that you're looking for last years, last years DH2 will likely be as much and last years Machete will likely be cheaper than last years Pickle. I think both are better options than the Pickle.

If you can get a discount then why not. A couple of my friends have the park Pickle and love it.
