Yes, because every new snowboarder who picked up a Custom X because they wanted it made a good purchase.

People join and post in these forums seeking gear advice. If everyone followed your comment above, these forums would be very inactive because it is very likely that over half of the members would never have came here.
Easy trigger. I'll make it clearer. Once your list is narrowed down get the one you want. I wouldn't expect anyone to choose one individual board for someone else.

I was easy and still am (that's what she said). Why do people always assume my smart alec replies are in Internet trigger happy nature?

Nobody is choosing for the guy. Just answering questions that he has to help him narrow the choices.

Like me for example, I didn't outright say to choose a specific board

Since he's just learning, a board within his price range, riding style and of decent quality.. He'll be fine as long as he gets the board he wants.

Of all the boards in question, 156 or 157 wide are just right for you.

They aren't too much board for you. None of them are stiff so you will be good. Learning on a stiff board is going to be tough. Furthermore, they are rocketed boards which will help with edge catches. You will be able to grow into these boards and won't be left wanting more. Well... You will want more to add to your quiver since sbing is super addicting

Now go slap that shop guy that said that.

I was looking at the same boards, and i am a similar size, and riding style, but i do a little more all mountain riding. I went with the joystick because i really wanted the channel to get the better flex, adjustability, dampening and everything else you want in a binding.

Besides the joystick i would definetly get the fastplant, that thing has so much pop, especially for a rockered board.

for sizes, id say Joystick 163 Wide, or the fastplant 162 wide, but you could go shorter.

clearly the OP is unsure of what HE wants. That's why he made this thread numbnuts.
