I am a Beginner/Intermediate rider that is trying to pick between buying a 2006 Hyperlite Motive 140 with standard bindings and a 2004 Hyperlite Fluid 137 with hyperlite spin bindings.

is there a reason why you've limited your choices to 2 old set-ups?

so are they pretty much the same board or is one more advanced than the other? the fluid looks like it has better bindings and is in better shape so i think i'm gonna go with that unless someone knows if there is any real significant difference, i'm kinnda clueless and looking for advice haha
