Default Custom x 159w too small ????

I'm 6"1 220 lbs. Ride groom,powder,trees , natural jumps, hardly any park and ride aggressively. Have size 12 boots. Saw a deal om a used custom x ics 159 wide would this be to small . I still might buy a second board for park .. Currently riding a 167 baron . Want something smaller.... Or should I be looking for a regular custom in a 162wide which is also available used and cheap

I would probably o for the 162w Custom. 159 is on the smaller side for you, not too small, just on the smaller end of the spectrum.

159 might be a bit small, I'm around 210 and I've got a 164W for freeriding and a 160 rocker for playing around. Sweet board though

what rocker board are you using... and is your 164 a custom or custom x?

You can ride it. Should be interesting tho. On the board spectrum it is on the stiffer end of things. Your pretty close to me in size. I would rock a 162 more for all mtn playin around. You can def ride the 159, but at 159 you prob want more of a softer flexing parkish/jibbish orentiented board.

My 164W is a custom X, great board. A little longer in the tight trees but it's manageable, carves sharp, no chatter when bombing, and deadly on the jumpline. My rocker I went with the custom flying V so I didn't need to buy a second set of bindings

162 W custom probably your best bet. But you'll need to spring for EST bindings

i was also considering the flying v rocker new of course but again either 158w or 162w.... im thinking im going to grab two boards this winter....is your one flexy play board and one all mountain powder board.. how do you like your flying v rocker? does it carve well and handle speed?

That's the plan, Flying V for chill daytrips and my CX for steeper aggressive bombing on the bigger mountains. I haven't riden the flying V yet but I did try the Custom rocker last year and I wanted to wait for the rocker/camber hybrid.

I'd look into the Lib Tech Trice if I were in your shoes. It's like a cross between a CX (stiff) and R.C
