A Bataleon sizing question

Okay so i'm thinking about getting my first Bataleon snowboard. I'm a bit concerned though about the size. Okay, I'm 6'2 and 185 pounds without my gear and size 11 feet. So Would evil twin 157 be too short for me or okay if i'm not planning to jib much (yet) but concentrating on jumps and learning some new spins etc. Or should i get Evil twin classic 159 ( without the new shape ). But to get that i have to drive about 150 miles to MAYBE get it but evil twin 157 2011 model would be easy for me to get.

Thank you!

I have a 2011 Bataleon evil twin 154 that I'm trying to get rid of.... it is the new version. Looking for $360 shipped. Only used for 2 runs.

With your boot size, you want the Evil Twin Classic.

16 Capita BSOD . 16 NS West . 15 NS Snowtrooper BIA . 13 Salomon Pow Snake
15 Now Drive . 14 Burton Genesis
14 Flow Hylite

11 is my boot size, so 157 will be too small ?

I'm about 175-180lbs and I ride the 154 new Evil Twin for messing around the mountain, buttering, etc. when I just want to cruise or if I'm with slower boarders. It's not meant for bombing down the mountain.

If you want something that can handle more all mountain, I'd go a size higher. I would probably get the 159 classic. The New ET has a smaller waist I believe, that's why Triple8sol is recommending the classic, which has a wider waist size.

Out of curiosity, has anyone compared an Evil Twin to a Never Summer Evo?
