Whatever 153 or 156

Great thread which has persuaded me to buy my first board, the Whatever. As it is my first board, I'm a little unsure whether to go for the 153 or 156. I'm 5'8, 150lbs and boot size US9.5. I'm a beginner/intermediate with only 1 week's boarding behind me but I anticipate I'll be mostly cruising, dipping in and out of the powder occasionally but not much time in the park. Which size would you guys suggest (wired, I'm looking a you )?

Also, I was thinking of combining the board with Burton Mission Restricted 2012 bindings. Good set up or not?

Grateful for any replies

For what you have described, the 156 will be ideal. Awesome board!

I'm currently selling my Bataleon Evil Twin 157 2012. Rode it two days and exchanged it for a NeverSummer which I could get for a great price here in the UK. Usually Im living in Germany, where prices for NeverSummer Boards are way too high, so I just had to buy it. The Evil Twin looks like a new Board, which makes sense as I only used it in the Alps in Montafon for two days. If someone is interested post me a message. Put it online here: http://www.snowboardingforum.com/buy...tml#post532514

Bataleon Evil Twin Thread issues

So as I mentioned before I was planning on taking out my new Evil Twin tomorrow but my plans were quickly changed when I tried putting my bindings on for the first time on the board ... first off I'm not a newbie to installing bindings that said I was screwing on the bindings got all 4 screws on (loose) to start them off then started tightening them down lightly and 3 went on fine the last one I was trying to tighten and it was tight after about a 1/2 of turn. I stopped didn't put any pressure on the screw and tried to reverse it no luck couldn't move forward or backward it was seized on it felt.. Did anyone have this happen to them it obvious was happen it got cross thread but how is that possible if it started off fine then out of no where it's stuck. Any suggestions on how to avoid this because I'm honestly nervous to put bindings on the new one

Hi,

So that understand, are you saying that you are now unable to back the screw out and that it is on in 1/2 turn? If that is the case you are still at the very top of the insert and there should be little problem. Let us know.

So basically a board that can bite on the groomers but still playful. What I'm having trouble with is finding something that isn't too flexible but flexible enough to justify a second board. Would I go "freestyle" or "all mountain freestyle."

My stats are 215 lbs with a 9.5 boot.

Any feedback would be much appreciated.
i'd say Goliath

How much stiffer is whatever compared to the fun kink?

I'm looking for something to butter on and play around on the mountain, no park or jibs.

according to the bataleon website , the whatever is "1" unit of measure stiffer than the fun kink.

overall, bataleons are a little stiffer than most other brands, so, if you're just playing around, I'd suggest the fun kink.
