Smile Which is the more appropriate length?

Hey guys,

I've been eyeing the 2011 Burton Custom Flying-V.

I am 1.7 m or 5.58 ft and weigh 60 kg or 132 pounds.

Here's the problem; I can't decide if I ought to go with the 148 cm or the 151.

I'm having different folks singing very different tunes, with some telling me I should go with the 148, some touting the 151 and a few others saying the difference wouldn't be noticeable.

Some expert opinion would be much appreciated.

Cheers!

It's not just about length, girth is important too.

Oh wait.... 151 then

IMO, 148 unless you're still growing and putting on weight. In which case you might want to consider the 151.

Oh yea.. Figured I might add that I've hit the mid-twenties, so no more growing. Unless God decides to bless me with a sudden growth spurt. And if he does, I hope it ain't side-ways.

I've just checked out e Burton webbie and it lists the following:

148's Weight Range:
90-140 lbs. / 41-63 kg

151's Weight Range:
110-160 lbs. / 50-72 kg

Does this change anything? Hahah.

Cheers,

Nope, there's a lot of weight overlap between sizes. I bet you a 153 says 130-180 or something like that

I see..

Cos I was just thinking, if I'm 60, plus all e shit that I'm wearing (boots, jacket, the works) along with the gear in my pack, wouldn't that be way over 63 kg?

Which is where the supposed weight range for the 141 ends.
