hi guys, props to you all for this thread, especially wiredsport for your amazing advice, read the whole thread but just wanted to ask a question myself.
i work in val thorens in france during the winter season, will be season 7 in a month or so and i'm after a new board, pretty much convinced myself i want a bataleon and am set on the ET. we're pretty high up in resort so the snow is usually decent, good pow to be found but no trees as we're too high for them, don't necessarily park too much but looking for a board to play around on, presses, flat tricks, spinning off of the lips off the sides etc.
currently riding a pretty stiff rome board but cannot for the life of me remember which - it's still in france while i'm at home in england, only got it cause my agent was stolen from my flat as we slept one night and a mate was selling it real cheap. if needs be i'll use that for the pow but probably aim to ride just the new board.
i'm 6'3", 190 pounds but do lose weight over the winter and foot size US 10 going by the method Wiredsports has provided.
i'm pretty sold on the ET 157 but am considering the 58 whatever aswell. what do you think?
looking forward to your advice!
