Thanks everyone for the help. I will now keep an eye out for a 159 due to my drop in weight.
@lonerider: shred-worthy pics dude!
@snowklinger: I got some salomon F-22s this year (last year's model 50% off) and I freakin love them. I have some old SPX PROs that I may replace with this year's Chief binding. Figured might aswell go Salomon with the board, although Libtechs are looking nice to me and are from the 206. The man's board really does look like it's what I need though.
edit: with all that said, I am open to any and all suggestions for boards/bindings. (someone suggested me union forces)
