My riding style - 60% off-piste and freeride, 40% all-mountain. I plan to improve freeriding side.
My current boards - Volkl Spade (camber 2009), Arbor Element RX 165.
I'm 200 lbs, 180 cm. tall. boot size 11.5 US.
pros: better flotability in pow, high board area.
cons: cause of the 26 cm. waist it's more difficult to turn and maneuvre on hard snow, piste.
My humble experience says that NS Raptor 164 is more comfort, easy and fun board to ride then Raptor 161 X (wide version).
So if you boot size let you ride regular version - I suppose it is better choice.
