Default Capita BSOD or Burton Flight Attendant

Very similar profiles. Mostly for powder but also want some morning groomers on down days. Having a really tough time on this one.

Size 10 boot and the 159 in FA is 250mm and the 159 BSOD comes in at 253.

Toe drag could be the deal breaker. I am 15 15 so I might be fine with both.

Thoughts?

The landlord might be a better choice.

I wouldn't really call the other 2 pow decks, more so all mountain boards.

How was the dampening on the board. Heard the new core helps with that. Does it handle the chop well? Good torsional flex?

It isnt damp but it handles well enough. Id call it chatter-y. It does well everywhere but its light and playfull from nose to tail, which makes it fun. It rides short for it's size, so if i could do it again id go 162.

I rode the '56 in 2012, and remember the board riding very short. I think '59 would be the best lenght for me. The board used to be way too chattery, and but I read they changed the core up to add a little dampening. I can't figure out why they don't take the rubber dampening of the UltraFear and add it to the BSOD, being that it's their biggest mountain board. Head scratcher.

This is a tough call between the two boards. Was hoping someone had ridden them both.

Get the FA if you ride mostly in powder. Ridinbend wrote a great review on the FA.

That review is compared to his proto, the bsod probably rides better in powder too.

I've had a BSOD for the past week. Have had a knee deep day on Tuesday to icey groomers yesterday afternoon. it handles groom well and holds a solid edge. The early rise nose makes it float well in powder. It's softer than what I normally ride but it seems to work just fine. It likes to go fast and yeah, the nose will slap a bit on chopped up groomers, it's a early rise tip, they do that..... It's a 162.

This is pretty good description. Size up if you want to make sure its nice and stable on groomers. Medium flex but not as chattery as you would expect. You can still open it up and bomb. Literally kills quivers - pow, groomers, jumps, playing around - but if you want something thats gona slay the big mountain, its probably not the right board.

Also riding a 159 with 10.5 thirty twos. No issue at all.
