renorjm I actually didn't get the magtek. Decided to get the board at the top of my list, the Never Summer SL. It is by far the best board I've ever bought!!! The hybrid rocker/camber they have is awesome. Took about 5 minutes to get used to it. I will never go back to 100% camber. I will be sticking with NS for many years to come, maybe forever! If you haven't made the switch yet, you're really missing out.

laxinchili I am actually currently trying to choose between a Rossi Krypto Magtek (magtek like the one, but stiffer and more free ride oriented) and the GNU Billy Goat.

Both stiff freeride boards with similar technologies, but opposite rocker profiles.
I ride in the PNW (and have never experienced rocker yet-getting back into boarding), could someone please compare/contrast how they ride and please recommend me one of the two for the conditions up here?

havin_a_ball I just picked up a 2012 Rossignol One Magtek 159 on for $184 total, shipped.

There are 9 left in the 156 length. Not quite as good a price as $135, but still pretty reasonable. There is a Black Friday code for 20% off going on right now. I think it is "bigshop".

renorjm Yep, I was able to get my local Dick's to call the Michigan store and have it shipped via UPS. They'll call me when it arrives. Couldn't pass up the deal. I figure even if I don't like it I can sell it on Ebay. It is one of the boards I've been looking at, but nothing comes close to this price. Hopefully they won't screw up shipping it and it arrives soon and I'll be able to try it out next weekend up in Vermont. We'll see...

Thanks a lot mschmidt33 for getting me in contact with your local store!

mschmidt33 fyi... renorjm was able to get the leftover 159 shipped to his local store. I think there was a 157 and 161 wide model left two. Should probably just buy them and sell them on ebay.

Could can start by looking at the Rossi website. If the board looks like the brown one currently listed, its the 2010-11 version. FYI, a year earlier (2009-10) it was called the One Mag (and didn't yet have the Amptek hybrid camber/rocker tech) but I don't know what it looked like.
