New agent. sizing
 
I'm 6'1 and 160lbs, im rockin a size 12 boot and im looking into gettin an agent. i havent been out in a few seasons so im not sure what i need exactly. any advice?

Look at the Slash, you might run into some toe drag issues with the Agent. The Slash is a widefooted Agent so you are still basically getting the same deck. I think based upon you height and wieght you would be good with the 156.

How long have you been riding?

Yeah, you should gain a little weight.

I've been riding for about 3 or 4 years but i didnt get out at all last season. i just finished highschool and im taking a year off so it seems like the perfect time to blow the bank and get back into it. Im ordering from buysnow.com and they actually dont have the slash for some reason which is why i was hoping to get away with the agent. i should add im getting the targa's for bindings, so i was hopin i could adjust them enough that toe drag wouldnt become an issue. do you think this might be ok even with my huge kicks?

I don't know you will probably have to ride some mad duck footed stance to get away with it. And why buy it from Buysnow.com they are selling the Agent for just as much as anywhere else; if you are set on getting it online just try and find a website that has the Slash.

I wouldn't go for the agent with that size boot... I wear a 13 and ride the flag, was looking at the anthem but it was way to narrow and I demod a slash last year and with the 13's had just a bit of overhand with a 18,-9 binding setting so with a 12 you'd be perfect on a slash
