Thumbs up

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?

I've always kind of regretted getting rid of this board, so I came across another one for cheap locally, a barely used 2011 model in the same size, so I'm picking it up to use as a rock board.

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...)

That's f*cking hilarious! Does this mean I get a forum discount?
