Default low cost suggestions w/ magnatraction or equivalant

Hi all,
Can someone recommend a low cost board that has magnatraction or equivalent? A prior year's model if still available is ok. Looking for something between 155-160, Vermont and worse conditions, not needed for powder or pipe. I may do a couple of demos, but didn't really want to spend that much time trying and would rather own something inexpensive (but not crap) and upgrade the following season.
Thanks

Sounds like a definate score for what you got for sure, but is $375 considered low cost for a board these days?
What other brands offer similar edges and what do the other companies call it?

They created and patented magnatraction so other companies have to pay to use it. If you want MTX you are going to have to pay more $$ unless you find a previous years model.

ahh ok thanks, so basically is a $375 bill (ouch) about the entry price for a base magna traction style board? or did he just get a lot for his money with that score?

Yup thats a steal for a brand new current year model. Generally you're looking at around $500-600 for that board, or similar boards brand new.

Good question. Here's what I would say, considering new boards from the current season (not last year's models):

< $100 Toy
$100-$199 Generic
$200-$299 Very cheap
$300-$399 Inexpensive
$400-$499 Moderately priced
$500-$599 Expensive
$600-$699 Very expensive
$700- Luxury

shell out the money for a Lib tech or Gnu, you got way more options on sizes and flex. If you treat a board good you can get a lot of seasons out of it.
