Westmark

Coda
so the coda and westmark will feel pretty much the same?? i want something still flexy but can handle it all...also, i wear a 9.5 boot, would i go with westmark or blacklist??

No, you can feel the difference that 3 cm of effective edge makes (between the Coda and Westmark).

The Westmark will be correct for your 9.5's (Between the Westmark and the Blacklist). What is your weight? That will help us dial in the right size for you.

Effective edge is the amount of edge that is in contact with the snow when compressed by your body weight. More effective edge helps with grip and carves and resists slipping on ice.

What model was your old 152?

In older camber boards the answer would have been yes, less playful. Now it depends on the design. In rockered boards and hybrid boards it does not critically effect playfulness when the board is not on edge, because that portion of the edge is not in contact (to varying degrees and depending on the design).

The effective edge of the current Indoor FK 152 is 113
The effective edge of the current Coda 153 is 116.4
The effective edge of the current Westmark 153 is 119.6

The Westmark 153 will be awesome for your specs.

I have a cambered 08 Coda 155 that I love I also have a draft in 155cm i am looking for something i can go fast on and still have it be playful I am very torn between the Westmark or a new Rockered Coda. I really don't notice the rocker on the draft unless I am on box or a rail because the flex is so soft. my weight is 170 boot size 9. I was initially thinking westmark, but now another Coda. I would like to stick with NS or Arbor

My vote is the westmark. It can do anything from all-mountain/pow to park/jibs. It is soft enough to be playful and poppy in the park when you want, but then also have the stability when charging all-mountain and pow runs. The board is just sick. I recommend it if you lean more towards park, but want it to be able to do everything else as well.

Personally didn't like the Westmark a ton. Loved the Coda.

If you're doing a lot of pressing/buttering/jibbing, maybe.

The Coda is a much much better board for going fast, and still plenty to be playful with. I could do pussy butters (because I'm a pussy) with the Coda. So anyone good could do what you please with it.

It was much more stable at speed.

I think I liked the Coda because it was so springy. Crazy how it's rocker but it would just pop off anything.

But people love their Westmark. It's not a bad board I guess. Turns out I'm not a jibber so I didn't need it.

Thats why i am so torn my draft is to playful, but yet my old Coda is camber so just going to a rockered coda should make a huge difference on the playful side. i think thanks for the help.
