Thinking about an older but new board

Whats up everybody, I enjoy riding my Palmer Factor but its just too short and I can't hold an edge with it. I am thinking about expanding my snowboard arsenal with a some what rare vintage 1990's ish Rossignol big mountain board for when I want to shred powder & go fast.
What do you guys think about an older but new board? Will it get soft on me and be worth less quick or do you think it will hold up?
I am planning to ride alot this season and race boarder cross, I'm just wondering if the board will deteriorate and get soft?
Whats up? What do you think?

If the board is new you have nothing to worry about in terms of it going soft on you. On the other hand, huge improvements have been made to powder boards in recent years. If you are looking mostly for a style thing and want to be on a retro board, then go for it. As far as pure pow riding enjoyment, you should check out some models fromthe past few years.
