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.
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.
