Default Flow Quantum?

My blacklist is falling apart, I am looking for something similar to ride most days. I have a 159w pbj, 162w grip, and 163w rush.

200LBS
13 ride boots

I'm pretty sure its to stiff but would a 159w quantum fit the bill? I have been working on boxes/rails but still prefer jumps, however we don't have much over 50 feet and this will be the first year that i will be trying to spin off of something in that neighborhood.

Other options would be appreciated, however i seem to break at least one board a year and i don't like to spend much.

If you're coming from a Blacklist you're better off with an Era. The Quantum is a pretty gnarly ride. Shifty if you want camber.

Ya thats kind of what i was thinking. Problem is wide versions don't exist in those other boards. I figured the shifty was the right deck.

It was just a good deal so i thought i would ask. Thanks for the info.

The 58 is damn near a wide. It's 25.9 in the waist. You'd be fine on that with 13's.

Thanks, i will take a look. I have owned one in the past, I was hoping for something a bit bigger for a daily rider. I may try to see if the assassin goes on sale in a 160w.

I would have tried to pick up a mod rocker but it looks like rome stopped making it in a wide.
