Providing your weight and boot size would greatly aid us in helping you pick a size.

yeah the banana is stiffer then the indoor and the edges on the banana suppose to be better on the groomers & ice....i see alot of ppl here on east coast with the bananas using them allover then mtn...my indoor does good, but on my recent trip to snowshoe it didnt like the double black diamonds too good! lol

I'd do a 154. This board will definitely hold up well on groomers and ice. It is stable as well at speed. Not the most stable, but stable nonetheless.

I am still confused how the Indoor FK is to soft. I am 180lbs and have a IS FK in a 156 and it bombs. I actually wish it was softer!!!

It's not just speed. It is probably the terrain condition that he is riding. Also, he is riding double blacks which are pretty steep. There is no doubt that Magnatraction works on ice/groomers. That factor alone stabilizes the board on bombers.

banana is stabl when goin fast but thats because its not fast at all. just so u know it gets beat up very fast i swear every skier that bumps my nana in line leaves theyre mark. its also doesnt have much pop and it also craps out pretty fast ive riden mine probably 8 times and its loseing its camber. it doesnt stomp out landings very well either. i still like to ride mine because its loose and playfull but i wish i would have got the NS EVO instead

the indoor isnt too soft, its just real chattery at high speeds and not very responsive on steeps like blacks & double blacks....i love the board dont get me wrong...just thinkin about adding another for the days i hit bigger stuff
