Forum Raider/Recon vs. Ride Fleetwood
I'm looking for a new board, to be used primarily for Freeride. No freestyle at all.
I've narrowed it down to:
1) Forum Raider
2) Forum Recon
3) Ride Fleetwood
From the vague descriptions and reviews of the Raider and Recon, I can't tell much difference. The main differences that I have found are that the Fleetwood is slightly on the heavy side and some say it is "too stiff". On the other hand some say that the Recon is "too soft, heavy, slow, and sluggish". Couldn't find too much on the Raider. Anyone have any advice from personal experience with these boards?
I'm 5'10, 160lbs, size 11 boot, and a beginner looking only to freeride and get the fundamentals down this season. I'm kind of concerned about toe drag, so I am looking to get the wide versions of the Raider/Recon...(Fleetwood comes only in wide to my knowledge.)
Is there one of these 3 that would be particularly better (quality, function, etc.) for me?
(I just picked up a set of Rome Arsenal bindings.)
