I pulled the trigger

I bought the K2 Slayblade. Granted it's a 2010 model, but I got it for significantly less (obviously), and its brand new condition (was still wrapped). I know it sounds cheesy, but I like the graphics much more on the 2010 Slayblade vs later models. Plus, I don't need to spend $580 on a new snowboard. I love how much more pop it has compared to my Salomon Ace. The old Ace handled well, but I can't wait to test this thing out.

gunner252 Another question - my current board is a 153 (I'm 5'9" - 150lb). I'm more than likely going to move to a 156, but was wondering if moving to a 159 would be too big? I don't to any fancy jumps or tricks. I realize it's about a 2.5" difference between a 153 & 159 - is that a lot?

gunner252 Thats what I'm saying - I like the 2012 graphics better than the 2013. And you can't find the 2012 models anywhere, understandably.

ThunderChunky Really? I think the 2013 graphic is boring as shit. But hey, whatever floats your boat man.

It just seemed to be too buttery, not stiff enough, but I could be wrong.

I've found the 2013 for sale online, just cant find much info on the 2013 model (i.e. what, if anything, is different between the 2012 & 2013 model? typically not a lot, but it sounds like in the mod rocker case there have been a few technological advances from the 2012 model). I DO like the graphics on the 2012 model more than the 2013 model.

Good to know, thanks. One problem, I'm having a hard time finding it anywhere online. Maybe it'll start showing up in a month or so.

I looked at the Park Pickle for a minute, but it seems like it's geared more towards 'park' riding. That's my only hesitancy.

If you're not a dominate jump and freeride guy then I would go with rocker. Think I just bought the last Mod positive camber around a few days ago that's a reasonable size.

I have heard about the mod rocker, and that it has an okay pop. Hope this post did not annoy you. Happy Riding.
