Compatriot Snowboards?

I am looking into a new Compatriot Valkyrie, but can't seem to find reviews of anything by Compatriot. Has anyone ridden any of their boards? They sound great, Knuckle Sandwhich edges, made in CO, sounds like they use quality materials, etc.

If anyone has any info on that board in particular, or just their experiences with Compatriot that would be awesome!

I've tried to get a deck to review from them for almost a year now I really want to hop on some of their stuff but the size of their company and low production numbers makes it hard.

Im also torn trying to decide between the 154.5 or the 158.

I weigh about 165 lbs, would like to lose about 5-10 lbs in the summer, but the thing about the 154.5 is that i ride mountain much more than park, and the ww is a 249 on the 54' compared to 250 on the 58'. I wear a sz.11 boot, which would put me right on the edge of either model lol..

Trying to decide if a 154.5 would be a wee bit too small for myself in terms of an all mountain board.

I just bought one its the compatriot La Mosca. I like it. Its a 149. Mid stiff flex. On the lighter side. Im a short dude and don't weigh much. If you weighed more you could prolly butter on it. It's mainly an all mountain board. Lots of control at high speeds. I haven't taken it off any huge kickers but I will this weekend and then I will let ya know how it went.
