It depends what you mean by better. We have no idea what your experience level is or what you will be using it for.

Dark series will be stiffer and heavier. T rice will be more playful.

You seriously expect advice based on that information!?
How about what type of riding? What style of riding? What location/kind of conditions? Desired attributes for the board? Etc.

Man, it is like pulling teeth...

OoOoOoh...Well I never thought about that. I just thought they looked awesome. You mean to tell me they actually build boards to specific riding conditions:eek: Wow go figure.

Well Mother dearest, I usually ride groomers, mainly freestyle/free riding. I usually get to experience powder days at least twice a year. I prefer to ride switch so Twin shape would be most ideal or directional twin.

If your asking for advice, its usually best to not be a jerk. That being said, if your not in the park and hitting some big jumps, get the dark series. Remember though if you have big dogs like me, the dark series runs a bit more narrow

Its this forum people are not very friendly compared to other web sites. Alot of Never Summer vs Lib Tech fanboy fighting. I actually have not been on here for years because most people are immature jerks when you ask for info.

You kindly asked all you get are assholes that really dont know much about the products.

Dont worry

Regrettably, I must say I live a sheltered shred lifestyle when it comes to product placement. I usually live under the notion of " if you see alot of them out there it must be a reliable and trust worthy product" I haven't seen Endeavor or Signal out on my resort

I would actually recommend the 2013 Skunk Ape Horsepower version. Your about my size and trust me this board is the best larger board out. Very light poppy and more aggressive than any other board I tried,

You're looking at some pretty damn aggressive boards considering your riding style.
