I'm in the market for a new MB and really like the GF Marlin. Should I buy this 09 for $709 or should I wait till the 10 comes out. I'm concerned about higher pricing and cheaper parts. What's your opinion? Has anyone heard good or bad about the 2010 models?

If you can find a dealer that is putting the 09 on sale, I say go for it. I got my 09 Piranha for about that price on sale. I think the Marlin Discs were about $550-$600? I haven't seen the specs of the 10 Marlins, but on the models I have seen I have mostly seen color changes, no big changes in specs.
Just get the 09, they just completely changed them in 09. The 2010 is going to be the same bike, with a different paint job. And I will bet the price will jump from $125. to $200 more on the 2010's The G2 is going to be around for a few years.
