My new question is what is the difference between BTX and PBTX? They both appear to be the same from what I have seen.
the difference is the asymetrical side cut on the heelside for the pbtx (p=pickle) verses the btx the sidecut on the toeside and heelside will be the same. have never rode a pickle...but i'd imagine at a noob level it would be a very subtle difference if at all noticed....thus buy whatevar ya like at your budget.

Only you can answer that question. If you have balance and speed and want to ride a rail then hit it.

Attack banana would be the better decision for all mountain. That or the trs. Check evo demo/blems section, tons of good boards super discounted. Even the burton trick pony.

Lamps Now's the time to buy if you want to get discounts.

If you can get the board you want for 30 or 40 per cent off there's got to be some pretty substantial changes to make it worth waiting till next year when you'll pay full price if you buy at the start of the season, plus the cost of a couple more rentals unless you've already got another deck

RayzTheRoof Hmm. I may wait on a purchase until next season then. I plan to mostly just ride all mountain, but with a little bit of park as I get better (I have also kind of been inspired to do some park skiing now that I am getting back into winter sports and have skied forever). But I was looking at other boards, and I assume an ec2 btx would be better than just btx for mountain right?

ridinbend Well by the looks of it btx has mild camber outside of the rocker as where the pbtx appears to be basically flat outside the rocker. My mullet is btx and my attack banana is ec2 btx. I personally don't like btx only as it makes for a bumpy ride under foot. But then again I don't ride much park, mostly pow and all mountain.
