Just pulled the trigger on the 2013 Raptor 164...

I've been riding a 165 T5 for the past 7 years, on a 163 premier for 7 years before that...

I was really vascilating between waiting on the 2014 with the increased dampness, or if I should go for a Cobra, since I live for powder in the trees...
I went with the Raptor because I wanted something that would handle the big mountain stuff and crud when I needed it...

Also torn between a 164 or the 161x. I'm a size 12 shoe, but ride in 11/11.5 boots. At 5'11" and 170, I guess I'm a little light for a 164, but I've been riding longer boards all my life.

Anyone have any word on this Raptor vs. Cobra choice?
164 vs. 161x or even a 159?
and 2014 vs 2013....

Mainly hoping that I made the right choice cause I'll be on this board for the next 7 years.
