What size powder board should I get
 
Im 6ft2 205lbs 11.5 boot and currently ride 2011 NS SL 161/ Iam looking at Premier F1 in a 163 or a Raptor in 164.. Whats the pros and cons to each? Ill be using some 2011 targas on this board aswell

Pure pow slayer? I'd go Premeir F1 165 if not even 168. I'm 3" shorter and about 25-30# lighter than you (when I'm in shape, not at the moment unfortunately) and I'd probably go 163 and wouldn't pass up a decent deal on a 165.

If you were looking for this as an all-mountain board, I'd say 163, but for pure pow slaying? Go big.

I have a 165 Arbor Element that I ride in pow and it takes a little more effort to throw it around in the trees, but the extra float is worth it when it's deep.

Yea i think the longest I will do is 166 cus I do like going into trees. I heard the raptor is a bit lighter than the premier?

Not sure if it's lighter, but probably not enough to make a difference.

Don't forget the Summit. If you're looking for a dedicated pow stick, that's the one.

rocker between the feet as the neversummers have makes big boards very easy and quick to turn. Im 165lbs and ride a 165 lib snowmullet with btx in the tightest of trees with no problem. For pow i prefer a softer board vs. a stiffer big mountain board, so i would look more at the raptor, or summit with taper for ultimate float, taper makes a board quicker to turn as well.

I'm 220lbs, don't know height in ft, about 196cm, and i ride Legacy 174. Grab the longer board for a speeds and more control. You won't do a 720's from a pow, will u?

This would be at least worth an inquiry
