You said you loved how the Flagship rode, so go with your gut and buy it. I would recommend not getting the Carbon version. It is a very forgiving and easy to ride board. Go get it and be stoked with it. Good luck.
Thanks for this short and simple answer. You seem to know the board and your right, I'll trust my first impression and hesitate no longer.
I'm just comming from the shop and packing the car with my brandnew flagship 158
We had a lot of snowfall the last days and the forecast anounces sunshine for the rest of this year, so my guts said: go an get it - now!
Can't wait to be in the mountains tomorrow
