Finding a Bataleon

Hey everyone, hoping someone can give an assist that is familiar with Bataleon/TBT.

HT: 6'5
WT: 235lbs
Ability: Expert- all mountain

I'm looking at the 67 Undisputed or 64 Enemy for the higher stiffness for weight factor, but I can't find them anywhere (demo/sale)! I would prefer to go smaller (currently ride 72 K2) for more tree mobility, but don't want to nose dive in the pow.

So, with the TBT could I go w/ a lower flex (64 Goliath) and still have control/stability bombing down steeps/groomers?

Thanks everyone!

I think the Enemy would be a little better for an AM stick. The Undisputed has more setback and a slightly narrower tail, so I have one for a pow stick. You should also look into the Jam 164.

Thanks Triple8Sol... That was my one big concern with the Undisputed, the set back, since I like to ride switch. I didn't even check the Jam (maybe graphic overlook)

I assume with your avatar that you ride TBT? If not sorry, but do you know if Bataleon produces more boards through out the season, because I have had no luck finding any of these decks online or in CO?

Thanks again

I think you'll find the Goliath too soft for your size. I'd imagine that riding switch on the Undisputed would be really awkward. Jam/Enemy should be ideal. Bataleon doesn't produce more boards during the season, and from what I've heard, most shops sell out of their stock by Christmas! I picked up all my boards in Sep/Oct this yr.

Thanks Triple8Sol, I think the flex of the Goliath would be way to soft, just didn't know if the TBT would help stabalize that sort of thing.

That sucks they run out that quick as I just got hip to the Bataleon game... Wonder if it's worth the wait and frustration...

You should post it up in the classifieds, you'll prob find a taker. That size is too small for someone of this guy's size/ability.
