Thanks for replying you guys,
I looked at the Celebrity, as well as the Rome Anthem/Agent, and like both the Awesome and Seeker appeared to perform better all around the mountain.
As for bindings, Im gonna be rocking Union Datas.
Overall, I've got a considerably solid budget of $1K but Im sure I aint gonna spend that much for a board... But like right now, Im really leaning towards the Awesome, but am still unsure about the width of the board. Im still wondering if the 159cm board's 252mm waist width will accommodate my boot size. Otherwise, the 158cm board has a width of 264mm, and Im not sure whether thats a little over the top or not.
