I don't know if he is like me but there are some of us out there that have the money to spend and just like to try different things. I did this with golf clubs, at one point I had 10 sets of irons in my basement I hadn't even played yet. For people like me it's about finding deals like this and trying different equipment.
For instance I just sold a perfectly good (great?) Lib Tech T.Rice and bought a NS Heritage (didn't get a deal though...)...I needed a slightly longer board and could have gotten a longer T.Rice but everyone here talks about NS so I had to try one. Honestly I haven't even ridden it yet (haven't seen it in fact even though it was delivered to my office yesterday) and I am just about certain I am going to buy a 11/12 T.Rice next season (longer than the one I just sold). On the other hand those Bataleons look cool and I wouldn't mind a parkish board...so maybe an Evil Twin......
If you're looking for a Bataleon on sale try www.dogbowlboard.com
. They had the artist edition Evil Twin, USA Fun.Kink and an Aerobic if I recall correctly
PS I didn't buy the board - I have 6 boards already. 3 Bataleons, 2 Burtons and a Lib Tech. I'm really all set.
