I'm hesitating between the 152 and 154. If I decide to go swiss army knife style and sell my freeride board. I'm guessing the 154 would be better suited for all mtn style.


@ 5'9 - 160 lbs - 9.5 boot, how's a 152 for all mtn?

at 160 lbs, the 156 Sierrascope will serve you better as an all mountain board... imho, the added stability you'd gain outside the park outweigh the benefits of a 4cm shorter board in the park, although you can ride a 152 all over the mountain and a 156 in the park and still have a ton of fun (it's all preference)... the 154 Indoor FK seems like a good compromise since it's pretty much the same board as the Sierrascope and would likely give you peace of mind with your decision, but I'd personally opt for the 156...

Aight I'm gonna keep the 160cm for the bombing days and get 152cm Indoor FK for park and dicking on the mountain.

--> I just wanna make sure it still holds up at moderate to high speeds in the 152. (5'9 - 160 lbs - 9.5 boot.) Also, it's gotta hold its own on 30ft jumps.

The IS FK is a good stick and will be great for riding all over and some park action. It's definitely not a park noodle though so keep that in mind. Carbon X between the bindings so I dunno personally how it would do on rails but for boxes and jumps is excellent. At your weight I would personally go 154. I am 6' 180-190 and the 156 suits me fine everywhere. You would be fine in anything from 152-156 in that board for sure.

Bah no problem, I didn't want a noodle anyways, because it has to hold up on large air. Rails shouldn't be too bad since I always enjoy a challenge. I was having fun in the park with my Pantera, so I can't imagine this :P

I've asked around A LOT and the majority pointed to the 152. This one was also most accessible to me in terms of stores holding it so I went with that.

what model GNU and how much do you weight?

you may feel a significant difference between different models 4 cm apart (you can feel the difference between different models at the same size), but the difference won't be that noticable between a 152 and 156 Sierrascope especially at 160 lbs, which is what the OP weighs... the 156 certainly won't feel like a boat compared to the 152....

gnu carbon credit, and i weigh 135 pounds.

i do realize that i bought the gnu a little larger than would normally be suitable for me, but they didn't have any 154's, and i thought the length would suit me for all-mountain riding, as i am completely incapable of doing anything in the park.

i've gotten a little better since then, and i just went riding for three days straight. aside from the difference in flex and edge feel, the length does make a noticeable difference for me. it may be because i don't weigh much, but yeah, i don't know what else to say. as far as the ride, they both ride very well, and i can control both boards without any problems. the major differences for me were that the sierrascope is a noodle compared to the gnu, and the gnu is much more stable at high speeds coming down steeper slopes.

as far as the difference between a 152 and a 156 sierrascope, i have no idea. it sounds to me, given the specs of the op, that 152 would seem appropriate.

i love my life
