Yeah next years BS version Celebrity is different due to the BS tech makes it a bit different when comparing the base profiles so they will ride much different. Is why I asked if he wanted the BS tech version. Was not bashing your view at all. If it was not the bs tech would have said the believer to save cash bit think Omatics usually hit around a $390 MSRP so is not a very pricey board to begin with.I own a Believer and the board is stiffer than your average freestyle board. IMO, it is a pipe/jump board with some rails thrown in. It carves great when you just want to freeride and there's no chatter when bombing down hills. I've never ridden an Omatic, but looking at the 2010 specs, it appears the boards are constructed very similarly, hence my comment above about saving the $$ unless there's something in the Omatic you're really looking for.
