To add to my concerns I'm now not sure what size I should be looking at. My current board is 153 so I just presumed I'd get the same again. But now I'm wondering whether I should go the 156 if I go for the Rossi or the 154 or 156 with the greats. The extra length would probably be good for Japan or bombing groomed runs but I'm concerned it may get a little stiff. I weigh 70kgs (154lbs)

Yeah I've read there was a fairly big change between the 10 and 11 models especially in the cons you mentioned

Nice one, had a chance to ride it in pow? how do you find the flex is the board easy enough to press? Which size did you go?

Definitely had crossed my mind but my big concern is last time I went to Japan I somehow ended up with bluebird every day and no Pow (but some lovely groomers) and I'd really prefer to travel with one board.

Interesting will look into it, I'm not necessarily after something exactly like the greats as I haven't ridden that either just something camberish that will suit my riding style/conditions.

Sweet, Which size did you go? Whichever board I get I'll be bolting a pair of Rome 390 Bosses on.
