dna supposed to be lighter even though there's only a slight difference... and should be livelier, have better response because it's wood... I heard they were pretty fragile... I wouldn't ride one on obstacles... also heard that honeycomb cores are coming back... LF don't have any ultra cores this year... so I guess you could say that balsa core were not really that popular...

to aid in answering your ?, unless sponsored by a board company and you get free gear, I'm assuming that your like most people, you buy it, it needs to last a few years until you can afford to upgrade to something cool, new and different. DNA is more expensive, and although slightly lighter and more reactive as is previously mentioned...the core/wood is prone to cracking. Again, if not using on obstacles or coming down from Chad Sharpe type double up, shouldn't be a problem, but do you really want to replace a $500 board in a year or two because it's broke and worthless?
