Exclamation i need help picking a forum snowboard

Alright i have been shoppin for quite a while in forum snowboards. I want to be able to hit mellow powder days and freeride down the mountain but also be able to hit up the park when i want to. i am 15 5'10 145-155 pounds. i "think" i have made my decision on a 154 youngblood but i dont know...i have looked at 154 destroyers too. the main difference between them is just the flex according to eddie wall when i talked to him. but i just need some help picking a board, what do you think the better all round board would be? also according to eddie wall softer boards are way more fun to ride and thats one of the main reasons of im leaning twards the youngblood. i think im gonna keep it in the size range 152-156. i dont think im gonna grow that much more. what will it be youngblood or destroyer? maybe some who has rode 1 of these boards tell me how it was? thanks everybody

Are you dead set on Forum? There are a TON of other quality companies out there...not to mention that they only have 2 boards out for the 08 season...

The Destroyer is an upper end board, meaning it has a better base, core, and laminate than the youngblood. If your choice is between those two, id go for the Destroyer.

The stoke is high

Well just because Eddie said it doesn't mean its true. Ask yourself what you want from your board. Softer boards suck at free riding at speeds they start getting chattery, in pow they're only good if you're in the trees and want a board to toss around. If you're doing wide open bowls you want something stiffer.

If you're so stuck on the Destroyer, get the 154...
