Default Best prices on a NS SL? How to make sure I'm not buying an older model?

Where is the best place you know of (online is preferred) to get an SL for the best deal? I'm looking for a 158 I believe, since I am a 5'10 @ 195lbs. I'm looking at $500+ right now =(

Also I've seen the board in black or white, and with yellow or green letters. Which is the most recent? I have a feeling the yellow-lettered darker backed one is an older model and I don't want to get ripped off..

That's probably gonna be about the best you're gonna do. The SL is NS's most popular board and you don't often see deals on them, especially in a common size like 158.

Ebay and Craigslist would probably be your best choices at this point, though keep searching!

That's $70+ dollars shipping for people in the us. Why not just buy from a store and have a formal receipt if you need to use the warrantee on it and know your stuff is being handled professionally and that your board probably won't get damaged? As for Craigslist IMO its really hard to find a new board that's a nice ns and is the right size

I just got a 2012 158 SL someone bought used once and returned for $300. Just need to look around a little.

This is the top sheet of the 2012's so you know what your looking at.

It hasnt changed much in 3 years. It didnt get carbonium. It didnt get blunted tips. Theyve made minor alterations to things like core tech.
