Another "help me pick a board" thread :)
I'm currently shopping for a new snowboard and am looking for some opionions. I'm strongly considering a 159 0r 161 Never Summer Premier with Targa bindings.
Currently ride a 160 Option Signiture. I'm 5'11'', 175 lbs and a fairly advanced riding (7 yrs exp.) I spend most of my time in the trees and backcountryish black runs and I loving hitting kickers that I find along the way. I never hit the park.
I'm heard that the NS Premier is a awesome board except for being rather heavy. My concern is that a heavier board will be a pain when it comes to making tight turns in the trees. I'm also looking for something with a bit more flex (the signiture has a flex rating of 7 compared to 6 for the Premier), would this change in flex rating actually be noticable. And lastly, what would be better a 159 or a 161 board or would it make pretty much no different.
Thanks for the help!
