Sounds like it would be more Burtonesque type of profile. Seems like magnetraction is the patch to my lack of time working on my soft booting skills. Great Band aid if you ask me.
Again thank you very much for all the information. If somebody has more info to share feel free to chime in.
Meanwhile the hunt for a 166 skunk ape begins.
A 166 is fucken monster sized for your weight.
I'm about your size, wear size 11s, weight slightly more than you, and my Hot Knife is 158. And I wouldn't consider going bigger than that, unless you're going to be riding in pure pow.
Side question: If you're use to hard boots, why not get stiffer bindings and boots?
