Default I need some opinions.....

And I'm not normally the one to post about it here, but hey, WTH, why not? Anyway, I've been realizing that a new set-up is in my future, both board and bindings (boots later), and I came across this...GNU snowboard . So my questions are, what year is this board? What year and model are those K2's? Being an all-mountain rider, would the Carbon Credit be a good ride? How is the btx/camber blend? I'm guessing not as good as the C2BTX, but not as bad as straight bananna? Anyway, I'm appreciative of any input you guys might have. Thanks!

Get a highend c2btx type and be done. Get a board that is going to be fun and have the capacity for you to develop. I demo'd a c2btx a couple weeks ago and its a very fun and pretty much a do all ride...don't sell your self short...you have been around long enough and committed so step up. I find that boots are the most important, then the board and lastly bindings...just some good sturdy stiff ones with good ratchets. Btw, I ride cambered and had a banana but got rid of it cause of its dead/no pop feeling and folds up. My next board will be a c2btx type or if I could find a twin cambered, softer flex with mag...which I had but snapped the tail the first day last year...it was a very fun board and wished gnu still made them and I would buy that instead of a c2btx

I hear what you're saying Wrath, I do. I'd rather ride a T.Rice or a TRS or something with mag (or some other edge tech) and semi stiff but still freestylee (made up word?). However, I'm not in a position to afford such luxuries at this point in time, nor will I be anytime soon. However, I am in a range that is close to the craigslist ad I posted. So, I'm all for continuing my search if this board really isn't so hot. I just didn't know much about it and had a hard time finding stuff about it. As for the bindings, stiffer and cushier is what I'm looking for. My Flites just aren't cutting it anymore. And the boots are only on hold because the pair I have now are still serviceable and I have a fund stashed aside for the new ones I will pick up this off-season.

That board is like a year or two old. Also that's a screaming deal and people over look the Carbon Credit because its "marketed" as a beginner board. I've sent big shit on that board before it's fine for the level you're at and won't hold you back plus those bindings I'm still using them as back ups.
