Is a Dominator suitable for a newb?
Sorry, don't want to post the same message in numerous threads without reason (see quote below from the Addvance thread) however a used Dominator just popped up on my local classifieds site and it looks brand new, it's 6'10" and about $350 cheaper than a new one.
Given the below scenario (swap the Addvance for a Dominator), would the used Dominator be suitable?

It will for sure get you catching waves and going down the line with a few slower cut backs, but you'll out grow it pretty quick and be thinking about one about a foot smaller.
The addvance is going to allow you to progress more and could remain in your quiver as a smaller wave board.
Or you go for the used Dom, sell it once you out grow it and probably get your money back. Be sure it hasn't been dinged before you buy it. Paint jobs and stickers often are hiding something.
thanks for the reply here and in the other thread, much appreciated.
I might just stick with the addvance in that case. The Dom is pretty much brand new, but sounds like the addvance might be the better option.
