How much difference does length actually make?! (talkin about snowboards :P)
Hey guys, first post, been enjoying lurking on the site though.
So.. after much searching/research Ive finally found a clearance deal on a seemingly quality board that fits into my $250-300 board budget, but the only size still available is 161cm. I'm 5'11 and 185 or so pounds without snowboard gear on, it seems like this board should be fine for me. But, several people have told me not to get it, 161 is too long, and that for my stats 159 is an ideal length.... 2 cm? idk if I would notice if my own foot got 2 cm longer, much less a big board that I'm sliding around on.
Ive been snowboarding for a while, am of intermediate skill, and I like to go all over the mountain, but this will be my first board purchase and I need help. Any input is appreciated. p.s. [---2 cm---]
