Really? I think the 2013 graphic is boring as shit. But hey, whatever floats your boat man.

Thats what I'm saying - I like the 2012 graphics better than the 2013. And you can't find the 2012 models anywhere, understandably.

Another question - my current board is a 153 (I'm 5'9" - 150lb). I'm more than likely going to move to a 156, but was wondering if moving to a 159 would be too big? I don't to any fancy jumps or tricks. I realize it's about a 2.5" difference between a 153 & 159 - is that a lot?

It'll be a lot cause the boards are built differently for the sizes. The bigger the beefier. The 156 is plenty board for you.

Default I pulled the trigger

I bought the K2 Slayblade. Granted it's a 2010 model, but I got it for significantly less (obviously), and its brand new condition (was still wrapped). I know it sounds cheesy, but I like the graphics much more on the 2010 Slayblade vs later models. Plus, I don't need to spend $580 on a new snowboard. I love how much more pop it has compared to my Salomon Ace. The old Ace handled well, but I can't wait to test this thing out.
