Cool Parkstar vs Fastplant

I know this has been up here already. I am looking to buy one of these boards. I am 5'11" 150 lbs with a size 11 boot. I used to ride a Rome Agent 158. I mainly ride all mountain and park mixed. I know the Fastplant has the Bambooyah core with the 5 year warranty. Both seem to be excellent boards. I am not sure what size to get in either of these boards. But definitely am going to buy one of these boards. Just need some input as to which one and what size. Any input is welcomed. Thanks guys!

I actually just bought the K2 parkstar and received it yesterday. Though I have not been able to ride it since its still like 60 degrees here in PA, I am very satisfied with my purchase. I saw nothing but great reviews on it. I am 6 feet, 145lbs and wear a size 11 and a half boot. I did not buy a wide and I will admit I was a little worried before receiving the board. I put my bindings and boots on the board and there is absolutely no toe drag. Everyone I have talked to has said that this board is amazing and I will love it. I can't wait til it snows. So I hope this helps...

I have the 09/10 Parkstar 155. I could not be happier!!! That board is so much fun all over the mountain. Just like the reviews say, from peak to park this board is awesome!

I put Ride Spi bindings on mine and they rock! I could not be happier with my setup!

I currently have a pair of technines which is good enough. They have lasted me 2 seasons and I love them. I know a lot of people don't like technine but I do.
