Not sure how I missed the previous poster's question, but I know the 2010 and 2011 versions are identical, save for graphics. To those out there that have a newer 2012/2013/2014 model, has anything else changed with the board? (i.e. wood core, gullwing shape, base material, flex pattern, etc...)

SGoldwin A little bump and perhaps some update to current season version. I am looking for a new board. My StephChild everythingsucks (salaryman) is really fun in park and pow. But when riding the slope (specially during afternoon) the board feels a bit unstable. The nose wobbles. Last weekend I had an hour trying out Nitro Blacklight. A supernive board, stable in the slope and really fun and quick in powder.
The Blacklight is a bit expensive, hard to found and perhaps a little bit to stiff. So I looked for other Gullwing boards and found Team Gullwing.

He me figure a few things out.

What differs 2010 and 2011 version of TG?
Which size should I go for? I am 5' 7 (170cm) and 140 lbs (67 kg).
How soft is TG compared to Blackligt and StephChild Everything sucks?

Waddup! I've been busy trying to maximize the small window of time we call summer here in the PNW. Lots of biking, hiking, and some running and wakeboarding.

Congrats on being Flow-free hahaha...I'll be back on here in full force soon enough

Triple8Sol Yes, the TG has some setback. The Riders Choice was one of my favorite boards, which is why I owned several of them in MTX and BTX versions. The TG is faster and floats better, while the Magnetraction was better on icy conditions.

jojotherider bumping an old thread here.

So does this board have an offest stance? I've currently got a 157.5 BTX Riders Choice and a 160w k2 Raygun. The RC is great in the crud, but lots of work in the pow. the Raygun is great in the pow, but lots of work in the crud. I had more fun riding the Raygun than I expectd. mostly because there were a lot of pow days at the end of the year. The problem that I had were the days where I knew I was putting in a full day. Pow in the morning, crud in the afternoon. Which board do I take? most often it was the Raygun because the float in the pow was amazing. But man did the afternoons suck. I think a good portion of the problem was due to the width of the Raygun with my size 10 boot. So I've been keeping an eye on the classifieds for a new deck this year. A Team Gullwing 159 came up today and i came across thread in searching for reviews.

Anyone have any experience riding a Riders Choice (or any BTX board) and tried the TG?

Triple8Sol Well I ended up getting this board back from my friend. I decided I missed having it, and basically traded a board for it. So now this is gonna be my AM FS stick this season.

Started riding Nitro boards in 2001 and haven't rode anything else since. Great company, quality products all around.
