Red face NS Evo-R 153 or 155?

Hi guys,

I need some advice here, I'm around 5'9 and weight around 165 to 170 lbs (I might able to work my way down to 160lbs during mid season). My boot size is 9.5. I usually do freeride but this season I want to spend more time in the park area.

I was wondering if 153 will give me any heel and toe drag during freeride? I prefer shorter board because they can spin faster but will the 153 be less stable at high speed compare to the 155?

Sorry I never ride a rocker board before....

Thanks everyone!

As a general rule of thumb with any board, any tech, longer means more speed and stability at speed. 155 is pretty ideal for an all-mountain stick, if that's what you're after.

I'm 5'7" 140lbs and ride on NS Evo-R (08/09) 153cm - works great for all-mt!
Have boots 9US size, no problem with heel or toe drag.
You are taller so your stance should be a little wider then mine and no drag will appear.

155 will be more stable then 153 on high speed - that's logic. And if you want to get park board with freeride option better to go with 155.

I weigh about the same as you and I would go with the 153, of course I'm a park rat. Even if I wasn't I would probably still go for 153 but whatever floats your boat.
