pow twin

Alright. I love my Arbor A-Frame, and it rides great. But with the smoke - light wind blown really deep stuff I was riding yesterday, I need a pow stick. Something that will float my 160 lbs at any speed without burning my back leg.

I was thinking:
Ride Slackcountry
Burton Malolo / Fish
JJ Hovercraft
Dupraz
Prior Swallowtail


Any Other Fantastic pow board? Id stay away from rides like the Banana hammock...too specific, and I do need to get where the powder is too...

None of those are twin tips. For a good pow board those are good options. I'd throw the Neversummer Summit in there. It's perfectly capable on groomers and just slays the super deep. The K2 Gyrator is another great deep day board and it does just fine on groomers too.

For a twin shape, any of the rocker twin boards should do.

I know...But could not leave them out either. Curious about the Slackcountry.
Damn the Summit is gorgeous.

the slackcountry is a setback twin and has reference holes for a centered stance if that's what you like. I have a 2010 164 for sale if your interested

If you want a true twin, stick to softer boards. When you push on the tail with one of those it will bend easier making float easier.

Signal Park Rocker, Nitro SubZero, Arbor Draft, Flow Verve, Forum Scallywag, Salomon Drift Rocker, Academy Propaganda Rocker, CAPiTA Horrorscope, Burton Hero, DC PBJ, or a Rome Artifact Rocker.

All around a 158ish.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

The Prior Powstick you mentioned starts at 167 and goes up to 181. I think for a real powder stick you will want something longer than what you may be used to for groomed runs or park or what have you. The Prior could be had with reverse camber, if you want that. Prior has several powder specialty sticks besides the swallowtail Powstick.
