I currently ride an 08 custom x (156). All I do is free ride - no parks at all. I've been ridding for about 15 yrs now. I ride backcountry, powder, groomed runs and focus on speed in general. I like how my current board rides, however, I feel like it is not stiff enough and I get some chatter at high speeds. It carves good, but my old Burton Balance held an edge better.
I was wondering if anyone had any input in regards to the 09 Burton T6 (I would get the 159) compared to my board. If I was to get this board would it be a significant difference from my current board? I do not want to buy the t6 if its pretty similar in regards to performance.
Thanks for the help.
Here are a few choices.
From experience I would highly recommend Never Summer. Their boards are a little heavier but have awesome durability and dampening.
-Never Summer Titan, stiff free-ride/big-mountain board (comes in a wide too).
-Never Summer Summit, stiff free-ride/big-mountain board with a powder shape (doesn't come in a wide).
-Never Summer Premier F1, stiff free-ride/big-mountain board with rocker and camber (doesn't come in a wide)
-GNU Billy Goat 162 if you don't have big boots. Stiffest GNU/Lib board.
-Nitro Pantera/Pantera LX. Stiff free-ride board, tapered shape for pow. Comes in a wide. LX model is slightly stiffer and lighter.
-Rossignol Experience. Stiff free-ride board, sligtly tapered, magnetraction.
