Burton Root thoughts?

I might be able to grab a dirt cheap 13/14 Root 152 still in the plastic. I have never ridden any of these little boards (nug/harvest/root). Anybody have experience with the Root? I am 6ft 210lbs so it seems like it may be on the small side even though they are supposed to be downsized. I thought it might make a fun board for the tight trees though. What say you?

I have ridden the nug on a demo. It was actually a lot of fun. I'd buy a cheap one for kicks. B

I have the 144 Root and I normally ride a 152. It's a surfy and loose powder board. I've ridden it on piste and I didn't quite enjoy it, finding that it wasn't really stable for me at high speeds. Looking down and seeing less board is also a weird feeling that takes time to get used to too.

I would get it if you like to goof around on the mountain (spinning and jibbing on side hits) and tree riding if its not deep. I wouldn't use it for all mountain charging. It has it's place.

I'm 6', 195 lbs and have a 148 & 152 Root. It's a very fun little resort board that is surprisingly responsive. Grab it...it's not a daily driver, but you'll definitely enjoy it.

Looks like it sold already. Gotta jump on those deals quick I guess. Oh well, I'll just have to ride my other boards for now. Maybe I'll get a little slasher type board when the spring sales start. Cool Bean, Mod Fish or something like that.
