Burton blunt vs hero

Im getting a new board and cant dedice which one. I cruise down the mountail probably 70% of the time and hit up the park the rest of the time. I want a board that is great for the mountain that can handle speed and turn well because i race my friends a lot but also something that will be able to shred in the park. Ive been looking at the blunt, hero, dominant, and process. Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated.

You need to post this in the "board" section

What makes you want those boards?

There are A LOT better options out there. (non-burton boards)

The blunt is awful by the way.

Ok Shawny, there are people out there that will tell you these are good boards. Yes, you can snowboard on them, but that doesnt necessarily make them good boards. We need the following from you:

Boarding Experience (seasons or years)
Type of riding that you do, or want to do (park,freeride all mountain etc)
Weight
Height
Boot Size
Price range you are looking to spend


Will be able to help you out so much more with that info.

Snowboarding for about 1 and a half seasons, i like it so much better than skiing, and ride the mountain for the majority of my time hitting everything including double blacks, i love going fast, and when i go to the park i mainly do jumps, rails, a few boxes, basically anything that is there i try, i also like doing flat land tricks, i am 150lbs, 5'10, size 10-11 boot, and can spend up to 320 for a board,

If you want to stay with Burton, check out previous years Burton Fix. You may be able to find it in your price range. Look into Flow as well, the make some great boards for very affordable prices

Gross, the Fix is actually the only zero cam board I can think of that I hated.

Here's the usual do everything freestyle list for ya.
Arbor Westmark, Flow Verve/Era, Signal Park Flat, Signal Omni, Salomon Drift Rocker, Nitro Gross Out Kooley, if Burton, the Easy Livin FV, or a Nitro Rook. Aim for 152-154. All those except the Park Flat will have to be 2011.

The Arbor Formula is a decent 2012 backup if you can't find anything decent in your size from last year.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
