Default gnu carbon credit or strange trip?

trying to decide on my next board, has anyone ridden either the carbon credit or strange trip before?

i think the only major difference is the strange trip has different sidecuts for heel and toe edge. i want to know if it is worth paying the extra $100 for.

CC is a good budget-friendly board that's pretty versatile as far as 'all mountain' is concerned you can ride it just about anywhere. Is it oozing brand new top of the line tech? No, but it'll get the job done.

Aside from the asym sidecut, the Strange Trip has an asym core, a different core composition, a sintered base instead of extruded, and according to Gnu it's marginally softer than the CC so maybe geared a little more towards freestyle than all terrain but I'm not positive about that.

The base alone usually commands $30-50 extra for sintered over extruded, just to put it in perspective.
