Default Womens board question

My Fiancee is looking for a new snowboard. She has been a couple of times and wants to get a board of her own. Here are the boards she is thinking about. If you could just let us know which board would be best. Thanks.

what kind of riding does your fiancee like to do? because that will influence what board would be best for her.

i can tell you a few things about some of the boards though just in general

i would not buy a feelgood es. at all. it is a lot of money for a board that is moderately stiff with no pop. i had one as my 2nd board and it was great for about a month and then it completely died. i decided to give it the benefit of the doubt and demo one last year and i noticed the same thing, moderately stiff, but no pop whatsoever.

the stria, however, is a fabulous board. it is a bit softer than the feelgood, so definitely a more playful feel (it is also a twin, so it will have symmetrical shape and flex). this is definitely a great all around board i would recommend for anyone (except if you are charging huge backcountry lines or doing lots of street jibbing)..

I would recommend spending an hour or two reading through Shayboarder's blog..

She reviews a lot of womens boards/boots/bindings...and she may actually be near your wifes size..
