Default Parkstar vs Raygun

Hey everyone, I'm looking to get my first board and pretty much narrowed it down to these two. I've heard really good things about both boards but just wanted a little more input. Which of these two would allow me to progress, I think for now I'll mostly be on the trails but hope to progress to a few park runs a little later this season. Both these boards are rockered and I believe 80% flat only big differences I can see is that K2 lists the Raygun as an "all mountain rocker" and the Parkstar uses their Jibrocker tech and the Raygun is directional and has a slightly set back stance. I found a super cheap Raygun going for $230 at one of those big box stores where as the 2011 (couldn't find prior year) model of the Parkstar is $430 so I'm leaning toward the Raygun. Thanks!

By the way, I'm 25 5'9" 150lbs...the Raygun that's on sale is a 153 and the weight range is stated as under 150, should I be fine with that size?

I just picked up my first new board, the 2011 parkstar 149 for $300 (was on sale for 340 and i talked him down to 300) at my local resort... i love the parkstar, though I have only had about 5 runs on it. good luck
