Default bet you hear this a lot...

It's time to get a new board....and i need help!

i'm 5'10, 160lbs size 9.5 boot, ive been riding for over 15 years and am looking for a great all-mountain do-it-all board that will last a long time.

my days on snow vary from 5-10 to 30+ i am a powder hound but don't get freshies all the time. I've been retired from the park for a few years now, but still roll through every now and again to show the young pups that i can still hit.

basically looking for something that will float, land in the deep stuff, not take all my strength away turning in the trees, shred the groomers, and be forgiving and playful enough for the park.

boards i've narrowed it down to:
burton sherlock
burton custom flying-v
ride machete
rome agent rocker
arbor coda

looking to hear some firsthand advice about these boards not hearsay and such...also a touch of size advice, as i fall right in the middle of the 155-160 spectrum. i usually ride 158 but could i go smaller because of rocker technology keeping me up in the pow? or should i stick to the longer for high speed control and added float?

thanks for your time and help...

yea this is a very very usual thread. Will not be hard to do some resarch to fulfill your needs.

I would stick with a 158 if you like it so far. The techs will only keep you up on the pow even better with the 158 compared to the 155 for example.
