Default im looking for a new board

my girlfriend wants to buy me a new board for my birthday, so i want to keep the price down. im thinking around $200. Right now i have an avalanche prop 155cm. i have bindings and boots and everything, so i only need the board. i am 130lbs, 5'8" ish so i think 155 is good. my 155 feels pretty good now. i have size 12 boots. iv been snowboarding for about 3 years, so im not looking for a top of the line board.

right now im looking at these three boards. (not sure if im aloud to post links on this forum so just let me know and i can take them off)

1. 5150 Stroke 155cm
2. Morrow Lithium 155cm
3. Nitro Target Crop 155cm


what do you guys think about these boards or am i way off track for a cheap quality board?

I would lean toward the Nitro. Another good choice would be an M3 Discord 155.5 Usually found for around $200 and worth every penny.

Or... split the gift with her, and add some of your own money for your new board.
Awesome girl you have though.

Like others have said, I would go with the nitro but I would recommend trying to ride the boards you like if possible. Ask freinds if you can try there boards, ask random people if you can swap for a run, etc. You would be suprised at how many people will be ok with this and let you take it for a quick spin as long as your careful.

Morrow and 5150s have never been that great for me. They are a descent beginner board but I feel that for the money, there are some better options out there.

ok, so im going to get one of the nitro target series, but i was just wondering if all of the nitro target series boards are about the same?

also, do you think that a 151 would be too small for me? right now i have a 155. i am about 5'8" and i have size 12 boots. the sizing chart on the house sais 25.5 to 26.5. but all the 151's are 24.6, is that too much of a difference? the 155's are 25 at waist.

so should i just stick with the 155 or could i go to 151?

so iv decided to go with the nitro target redline 151. shorter for a little more control and its the same width as my current board which has worked fine.

thanks for all the help
