Default Salomon Derby - Shorty Pow board

Has anybody used the Salomon Derby? For those that are unfamiliar with it, it is Josh Dirksen's new board (he used to ride Sick Stick) that is specifically made for deep pow runs through trees and tight spaces.

Looks like a Sick Stick, but it's much shorter and has wider nose width (to make up for the shorter length I'm guessing).

Length wise it only comes in two sizes - 147 and 151. That seems SUPER short to me - I'm 6'0" and 185 geared up. The specs say it can carry a rider over 200 lbs. I'm skeptical!

Anyone try this board?
