What up, I already posted this in the ask the staff section, but I thought I'd try to get some advice here, too.  My cousin is getting his first board after a year of renting, and we have it narrowed to the palmer p-line and the GNU chb, because both are boards you can progress with until you want a high-end board.  and because with the new promo, he'll be spending less than 250 bucks.  As far as I know, the p-line is directional, setback, and has the better base of the two.  I have a chb, which is why I recommended the gnu.  I think it's a mellow board that he could easily have fun on.  Unfortunately, mine's a 159 and he's looking for a 153-55.
Anybody got ideas on which would be better for all-mountain fun?  Mostly groomers and small jumps, with an occasional run through the park.  I feel like the chb may be better for this because it's a twin.  But everybody here seems to like palmer (never ridden one but some people here swear by them so I figure it's gotta be decent).

I actually like the P-Line, when I get the money I will get one for my all mountain riding. It's not the flashest looking thing in the world, with it's basic top sheet look. But from all I heard and see it's a great board from people here and people I know that used it.
 
I don't know much about GNU so I can't really give you a opinion, but I do know they make great boards.

the GNU is more freestyle, thus the twin shape. The Palmer is set back by about a centimeter. i recomend the Palmer due to the base and the shape. It will b better all over the mountain, whereas the GNU will excell in the park while still having all-mountain performance

 i would also consider based on your requirements

Forum Youngblood
Ride Havoc
K2 darkstar

edit: and of course Burton RETRO TWIN!!!!!! best deal you can find for a solid board.

there's also some other forums on the sale site too that should meet his needs for a great price.

For "all mountain fun" I'd definitely go with the p-line... let me know how that works out actually.  I am tempted to pick up one of these boards (i.e. cheaper boards) towards end of season so I have something to mess around with in the park next year.
ROLL ON, BISHES.

Hey thanks guys, I recommended the chb to him because I have one and I think it would be great to learn on.  I think he ordered the Youngblood though.  Either way, I think he'll be fine.  I'll try to get him to make a profile and let you know how it goes.
