Default Bataleon board advice

So I'm looking to pick up a bataleon evil twin 159. But unsure if I can get away with a 159 wide or just a regular 159. I currently ride a 159 board but not wide. I wear a size ten boot and ride duck 12 12 degrees. Only reason I ask is because I can find the wide version pretty easily. What do u all think?

I wear a 10.5 boot and never needed a wide, so I can confirm there is no need for you.

As far as the ET, I had one last season and it was unpleasantly stiff. I got the GW this season and it's a little softer, but I think the carbon stiffens it up nearly as much as the ET. Looking to try an airobic or disaster, but our mtn has a lot of flat spots and I'm worried about loss of glide with the extruded base.

you'll be fine with the extruded base. my extruded bataleon was just as fast or faster than my sintered boards. both of those boards are pretty soft and a lot of fun
