All mountain stick choice.
Help me out decide what is best for the next 4 years of riding.
Background: I have been riding for 6 years, the laast 2 seriously, logging 35 days last season and 22 so far this one. Currently on a Ride COntrol 155 / B.Cartel (2005) bindings. weight 143lbs/65kg/5.10 / Regular.
Mostly on Powder backcountry, woods, fast groomers for carving, the occasional kicker.
I narrowed it down to:
*Arbor A-Frame (The look and the reviews on this board are just amazing, It just looks a bit delicate.)
*Arbor Element (same as above)
*NS Raptor (Great looks and very close to what I'm looking for)
*LibTech Skunk Ape 157
*Burton T6 (way too expensive, but beautiful)
* Head Ak (I.CT tech)
Fire up your opinions! Reviews, suggestions...we all love to talk and read about this stuff...
