08/09 Stairmaster

Found a Capita Stairmaster 152 wide online, currently riding a rome agent 158. Looking for a backup board. Is a 152 wide going to be short if I am 5'11"? And is this a good board?

How much do you weigh? It's all about your weight for board length (mostly). Plus, if you don't need a wide board, don't get one.

I'm 190 lbs with size 9 boots and I ride a 156 Stairmaster.

I'm ~165lbs and I ride a 152 nonwide stairmaster for my park board. I'm also only 5'7" though, and it definitely gets a little sketch at bombing blacks

I haven't had too much problems on a 156 straightlining blacks. The only size up would be a 159 so I'm happy with the 156.

With size 11.5 boots, I don't think you need the wide but I'm not 100% sure.
