Even though I may have started it with the 'ouch' comment on 375, lets not debate the definitions of price ranges here and I am not interested in something used, but thanks for the input and suggestions. I am all set on boots and bindings and want to focus on a board for the less then ideal east coast conditions which include hard pack, crust, icy sections, not continuously groomed, etc. I'll likely use a different board for powder and dont go into the pipe too much. I will demo a magna-traction or something similar at least once before I buy but I'd rather not try boards out an entire season long. My budget is anywhere between 275-350. I'd be really happy with paying less, but dont mind a bit more if needed.
Are my main choices things like GNU Carbon Credit, Ros One Mag, Lib Tech TRS BTX, Arbor Forula, Smokin? Anything else with something similar to magna-traction?
I plan to be flexible with which brand because I don't want to spend countless hours shopping around.
