Default GNU Riders Choice advice

Hey guys,

I've geen riding my GNU Carbon High Beam (current Carbon Credit) for 4 seasons now and will be entering the 5th. It is my first board and I've taken it to hell and back. I honestly feel like I've probably gotten everything I can out of it and Im looking into replacing it with a more advanced board. I've had my eye on the Riders Choice for some time now and am close to buying it. Has anybody out there ridden both the CC and RC and could compare? Would I be buying a more expensive version of the same type of board? I am aware of Mervin's different profiles, and the RC's extra pop from the C2 and longer effective edge with shorter overall length is what is appealing to me. I just don't want to drop $400 on a "slight" improvement over what I already have. Btw I'm 5'8, 140 lbs, size 9 boot. Any kind of input would be greatly appreciated.

Much thanks!

Default GNU Riders Choice advice

I'm just getting back to snowboarding after a couple of years break.
I have the 2010 version of Gnus rider choice. It's the 3rd board I've owned and I have nothing but praise for it.
By far the best board I've ever ridden on.
It's super responsive and flexible.
The magnatrac really works like its suppose to. If you like carving this will be like a dream for you.
It's got a sintered base so it'll last for years to come.

It's worth noting however that mine is from 2010.

If the new ones are anything like that one. I'd give it my vote.
