Bought Brand New 2011-12 K2 Brigade for $122 OTD!
Thanks for the insight. By the time I was done posting, both boards were out of stock at the site I had found them on. Cruised by Dicks Sporting Goods, and poof, 155 K2 Brigade Normally 299 on clearance for half off (199), get to the register, 25% additional off clearance snowboards, ended up paying $ 122 including tax can't really beat that deal. I have some basic avalanche bindings but a great pair of Salomon boots. Guess my decision was easily made for me, hoping this will get me through a few years so I can figure out if I am going to go freestyle or mountain. Thanks!
