I’m a fan of the Gnus; the Bpro…have demo’d and if were to buy another board it would be it or a billygoat c2 in the 156…really the billygoat and bpro are fairly similar…but slightly different as far as torsionally stiffness. I’m a guy with small feet and ride Baker….these board were designed for and at Baker. It is an aggressive, all mtn shred machine that will handle ice, pow, trees, blasting, natty and drops; and if you want a more aggressive board you have to start looking at men’s boards that are stiffer.
BTW, pop has nothing to do with length…its about camber profile and stiffness. Added length and more stiff will add stability at bombing speeds. The Bpro c3 version will have a bit more pop than the c2…but both c2 and c3 are relatively lifeless…if you want pop…go with a full cambered board. A cambered board will also give your more stability for bombing but will be slightly less playful and less agile compared to a c2…and a c3 will split the difference between a cambered and a c2. I personally found that the c3 did not make that much difference vs c2 compared to a cambered stiffy. I regularly ride a billygoat c2 159 split and an old fully cambered stiff twin 155….and a bpro would fit right in the middle..c3 for more stability and stiffness and a c2 for more agility…splitting hairs.
Rank based on my demoing
Billygoat=hyper aggressive…but smallest size is a 156
Bpro=aggressive…largest size is a 155…so perhaps a smaller version
Lady choice=more playful but only comes in a c2
Roxy eminence and infinity were both too flexy/noodlily for my liking.
There are also narrow versions of probably similar boards in the Lib tech line you might want to check out.
Anyway have no idea where you ride or your stats…but if you want to progress…imho get a bpro; my billygoat has certainly forced me to progress. When you venture in to advance/expert…its really about skills…you can make anything work…but having the right tool that allows you to do what you want is the ticket….and the differences in the board design becomes a personal choice based on subtleties.
