Default Blacklist 154 or 157

Decided to buy Arbor Blacklist...

But I can't make up my mind on size...

I'm 170 pounds last time I checked.

My weight is like a rubber band because of the type of work I do. It can range anywhere between 165 to 185 but usually around 175

I wish there's 156 like Westmark.

What do you reckon? 154 or 157? Minimal park riding this season because of current injury. But I reckon I will still be hitting small kickers and boxes

I have heard of this video but now after basking in its glory I can say it sucks like everything else they do. The Angry Snowboarder Blog Archive 2012 Arbor Blacklist Used and Reviewed I say go 54 if you want it to be more playful.

I'm going to write in and ask them if they can do a carpet flex test for me. For a top weight of 185, I vote 54 unless you never plan to touch the park.

I thought that guy was going to whip out the Blacklist's dick and start sucking, he couldn't stop gushing about the board.

I don't see why the hate on the video. At least they show how they're riding the board and not all of em are bad riders. Regarding the carpet boarding, well it's a flex test not really a review.

You have two guys saying the flex is "a little stiff" and the board is "hard to press" and having to "Craig Kelly" it to press it. That's just bad information probably influenced by uninformed and/or underskilled riders.

A flex test on carpet is worthless because you're not moving and carpet grips much harder. I can press my Evo over 2 and a half feet on carpet pretty easily. Flexing a board while sliding a nosepress or a 5-0 on a bar is a lot different or even just flexing it to put it on edge or moving it around trees and moguls. There's so much about board flex feel that can only be summed up by riding it.

It's not bad, but it's not a complete picture. The best thing to do is obviously a demo.
