Great pop, and the 163 I ride is super maneuverable in the trees, I imagine the 160 would just kill it. The Pow Snake is the same shape, but a bit stiffer. You lose the snap & pop of the bamboo, but the board will probably hold up a lot better (the SS is a bit fragile it seems, the bamboo top sheet chips easily).
How does it handle in the steeps?


Thanks for the replies. After thinking about it, riding switch is def not a priority for this board, so I've narrowed it down to the PYL, La Nina, and Hovercraft, and maybe the Sick Stick.
