That's the thing right now. I started on a 163 and it's plenty of board for me. I was thinking of going up to the 166 just to have a little more speed and control. Thoughts? I have read that the T6 is one of the stiffest and fastest boards out right now. I'm hoping that a wide will be wide enough for a 13 boot. I keep having toe drag and it catches my front edge in slush.
