blunt vs. balance

blunt vs. balance-
both boards are getting very good reviews, did anybody compare them back to back? which one is better in chop? I'm 170lbs... interested what sizes the guys of my weight ride... Onieva rides the 135, seems a bit too big for his weight (well, obviously not for him :lol: )... any thoughts?
all answers appreciated!

I'm 195 lbs and ride a 135 Blunt. I like it quite a lot. Very lightweight, one of the lightest boards I've ever held. It's got a decent bit of concave in the middle that lets it slice through the water upwind. Admittedly, I'm at the beginning end of intermediate level kiting, but I'm quite impressed with it.
