need help: Bataleon wide or normal?
I ordered "The Jam" from Bataleon 157.
After a month waiting for delivery, the shop contacted me to say Bataleon can't deliver the 157 normal, only 157 Wide.. They also looked for other shops and they all only have the 157 Wide.
Now I'm considering to buy the 157 wide.
These are my sizes:
Northwave boots: S 43 , USM 10,50 , USL 11,50
Flow "the five" bindings: XL
my weigth: 65kg
my hight: 177 cm
The difference between the bataleon Jam normal and a wide are:
157 >< 157w
CONTACT LENGTH (cm) 119 >< 121
TIP/TAIL WIDTH (mm) 299 >< 308
WAIST WIDTH (mm) 250 >< 260
SIDECUT RADIUS (m) 7.8 >< 7.9
STANCE WIDTH (cm) 52-60 >< 53-61
I really need some advice. I allready did a lot of search work on this forum, but I'm having doubts about it 'cause the differences between the normal and the wide are really small (up to 1 cm...)
Can someone help me on this?

Yes , u wont have good edge to edge response with 10.5 boot on wide board so I also recommend non wide board for you. And also as redlude97 said ,157 at 143lbs is little long , dunno what style of riding u do, for deep pow will be okay , but if u want something playfull u should really downsize.
