Default Jones Mountain Twin and Gnu Carbon Credit sizing

6'4, 175lbs, 12 boot.

158W or 161W (Jones)
159W or 162W (Gnu)

Will be using for all-mountain (lotta groomers, hopefully a lotta powder, and then lots of man made jumps outside of the park, also would like to do butters/presses)

Thanks!

splitting hairs with 3 cm but bigger is usually better for pow float. im 160 to 165 pounds and ride a 159 and occaisionally on super deep and light days wish I had a bit more float. go bigger unless you can get a better deal on the 158 or 159.

With the Jones I'd go for the 158W at your weight.

I've got the JMT, 6'1 175 and grabbed the 160, I'd probably do the 161 if I were you
