Stairmaster size? which ?
ok i have like almost 100% decided to get a stairmaster for next season because im looking to start learning to jib and jump. im not sure which size to get though 148 or 152.

As of now i ride a 156 Rome agent (more of an all mtn. board for me) with ride RX medium bindings, and 10.5 boots

Im just worried i might have toe drag cause ww on the 148 is 24.8 whereas the 152 is 25.2. Is this an issue?

weight: 140
Height: 6'0
Angles: 15 or 18 Front (i switch sometimes, still deciding)/ -6 back.

Another thing, i dont have to worry about powder ridding really. not much in so-cal mtns.

i want to also be able to ride a little out of the park too.
keep in mind im really light so stiff boards for me are like planks of ply wood.

just so you know that stairmaster will not be much softer at all then the agent, they are actually really close in flex..

I weigh what you do. Get the 148. I know that sounds freakishly tiny but it was magic. I'm a lifty at Breck so they days it dumps and everyone can't get here I still get to ride and that was the only time I DIDN'T like it. Cause at 148 it was pretty much impossible to really ride powder. I could get through it but not in a fun way.

I could press, jump and mob on my 148. If that absolutely scares you and you can't bring yourself to buy that small a board then you'll be fine on the 152. But you'll really be fine on the '48. I still miss it. Even with how much I like my new SubPop.

i ride the flow merc 152 which is kinda an all around board. i ride the mountain and hit boxes all day in the park with it. and im also gettin a stairmaster next season and im goin down to 148. i kno how it seems a lot smaller but im 175lbs and about 5'7 so it should work out fine for me.

At 6' you'll have no problem with the 152 and with a 10.5 boot it has the waist width you're looking for.

You should be alright with that. Its not the bulkiest boot. 24.8 will be ok for you. Especially if you max your stance.

thanks alot i didn't really think bout that... i prob would max stance on a 148 its like 24" i think which is only 1 more inch than mine now.
