Although the Raptor is regular width, you should be ok, might be pushing it a bit with a size 11 on the 159. Stiff yes, but plenty agile due to the width/sidecut. I had a great time bombing on mine, and had no issues with it in terms of maneuverability. Flagship is prob a great option also, more familiar length and camber in the middle, although it is damn stiff.
Agree. I rock a 165 wide with size 11. Plenty maneuverable for me. And on those crappy days will slay the groomers.
