Do you ride the Evo/Revolver? Which one do I need?

I'm 5'10", weigh 156lbs (and gaining), and have a US size 11.5 boot...can I get away with riding the Evo? has anybody done it yet? I do not want to use riders or a crazy stance.

I'm sure it's possible, but why risk it?

With size 11.5 boots, the only evo that could possibly work is the 161 with the 25.5 waist, which is probably bigger than you want.

With the revolver you could pick your size and feel safe that you'll have a comfortable ride.

I'm 5'10" 137lbs and wear a 11. With my 151cm Never Summer Evo I don't have any problems but I do have a pretty wide stance at just over 24" ducky.

since you are a half size bigger than me just wouldn't great the revolver.

I meant to say risers by the way guys....

but enayes, the only reason im trying to make it work is because I prefer the graphics on the Evo. Pretty lame..I know. Yes, the Revolver has similar graphics but I dont think it looks as good. youre definitely right there. Im thinking im gonna go 153, but if I plan to gain a few more pounds should i get a 155?

thats real good to know itZ Nicholas72! only question i have is what did you mean by your last sentence?

And thanks for the help guys. I guess my board decisions are between the Evo 153, Evo 155, and Revolver 153 if anybody can help me out.

The graphics are almost identical. You really don't want to have any toe drag, it will ruin your day and you'll have to get a new setup. I'd go revolver 153.
