Honestly between those I would go with whichever you can get cheaper. There is no trick you shouldn't be able to do with either board.

I was under the impression the One is unchanged in '14 except for graphics... In fact I think the shape is unchanged in '12, '13, and '14.

I've always been a fan of going for larger boards anytime you're in between, but much is personal preference. The swing weight difference isn't that much and in my opinion is more than made up for...
