Advice on a new setup
First a rundown of the basics:
Location: East Coast - Mostly Vermont Riding.
Riding Style: Currently all-mountain/freeride, looking to expand my riding with some more jumps and looking for air off natural features. Maybe a box here and there.
Last year I fell into ownership of a Custom X 160. I had Ion boots, and grabbed some C60 bindings dumb cheap. Because I got that gear so cheap, I figured I would ride it for the season, save some more cash, and buy a setup next year. It's a good board, the length was good for boarding Tuckermans Ravine and some nice pow I got at Jay but after half the season I knew I would want something shorter for next season.
Ideas on next setup
I'm looking to size down to a something in the 155ish range. I think it will help with transferring weight and getting strong pop (correct me if I'm wrong). I've heard good things about the Never Summer SL-R since 08/09 so I've always had an interest there. Ride Concept UL seemed to fit but I never rode it. Regardless, I'd like to hear about more lines. Bindings, I want something less stiff than the C60s I have. I checked out Targas and Forces and would like to hear about some other lines.
I guess that's all I can give without writing a book.
