Anyone Riding a NS 169 Raptor X?
Just want to know your thoughts on the camber/flex/feel.
I also want to know your weight/height/boot size, and riding level.
I am bout to pull the trigger on a 169X...
240 lbs + (250 now and dropping)
Advanced, 10+ years riding...some seasons of GS racing under my belt.
Colorado native....now in Idaho! Back this season after 4 off!
Last two boards....172 Premier (2001) and currently borrowing a 2007 Vertigo 162.
Rented a 168 Ride Prophet for a number of days earlier in the season....was looking for more speed.
Heard a lot of talk about sizing down.....for powder days sure, but I have the legs to throw around big boards no problem....in trees/moguls/tight lines.....Any reason why I shouldn't be riding the big board.???
Thanks for any thoughts....I have already gotten some great input...but would love to hear more!!
