Burton Fish
 
Hey !

I want to add a Powder Board to my quiver ! :thumbsup:
After reading some reviews, i am looking for the "Burton Fish" !

Can have a good deal on the 2014 and the 2013 version !
What are the main differences and wich one should i prefer ??....
...so far as i know, the new one has one some changes in shape of the Tail and type of the S-Rocker (which is flat now) ! also the position of the bindings is more centered...

-Does anybody has ridden this Board so far ? or has experience with the 2013 version ?

- which Bindings should i put on ? i am looking for 2014 Diodes or 2014 Cartels so far ! any suggestions ?

i think the best size for me is 156cm !?? ( i am 5.10 and 152 lbs)


Thank's for experiences, suggestions and advices !

Get whichever is cheaper. You'll have a blast either way. Dont think the board has changed much. Id go with cartels for a more surfy feel.

I have the 2012 version in a 156. The board is epic on a powder day. You'll never ride your regular board in deep pow after you rode your fish guaranteed (unless you wanna do spins and ride switch). Never tried the 2014 one. I like my board to have some sort of camber so the my 2012 is awesome. It's great for carving up the groomers too. So it's up to you, do you like camber to rocker or flat to rocker more? That is the only major difference and the shape of the tail.

Thats exactly why i am not sure which one to choose ! Burton advices this pairing also !
But in a steep icy couloir , when you need the response and power of a stiffer binding ?? or on steep slopes, what do you thing ?!
or is the fish the wrong Board then ??

Thanx !!

Why would you want to ride a steep icy couloir with a pow board? :)

because there is a lot of terrain like that in the Alps !
and why not ask somebody about, who has ridden that Board !?

i have a Travis Rice 2012 in 157 and 164,5 for Alpine Terrain but looking for something that is more easy in pow !
...and the question was: is the Fish more versatile with a stiffer binding ? or is it against the determination of the Board to much ??


kind regards !

You need at the least 2 boards if you like icy AND pow :) I suggest a stiff camber for icy and a big floaty rocker for pow.

yeah right !
but my old cambered T6 (2008) is not so much fun to ride in powder!
here in Europe you sometimes have to do the hard work first :) and ride down some icy stuff to get to big untracked powder .... best example over here is La Grave !

have U ever ridden a Banana Hammock or a "Jones" Board ??

I'm from Italy originally....moved here in 99. I have 2 boards (see my signature)
cambered Arbor A-Frame ( similar to your T6, fast and stiff) and a J Jones Hovercraft for pow. The "Craft is actually pretty good on groomers too, nothing like the edge hold of the A-Frame, but it will take you were the powder is. Or you can look at a J Jones Flagship, that is more an all-mountain board.

I tend to get up there early and snatch the untracked snow... and switch to the camber board later... if I still have legs left.

I have moderately stiff bindings on my '13 Fish and it does just fine. Very fun board in the pow for sure!

But for hard surface or icy or hard charging, I grab a different board.

Jones Flagship or Rossi XV do great in powder and great with the harder surfaces too. (don't be afraid to size up with either of these because controlling the board feels like it's shorter than true size).
