Question Changing Board and Style Help!!

OK...so I'm going to try to get this all out, First off some background just coming off of knee surgery so there is going to be a lot of changes this season. I've ridden head snowboards and been amazed at what they can do technology wise (Intelligence 161 and I.con 162) This year with the change in my riding style I'm looking to get a new board. Jumping will be to a minimum as my knee wont be back to normal until the end of Feb. So it will be groomers and head walls for me for now. I've really been looking a lot at the Burton 09 supermodel x 164. I know Burton isn't the most popular for a variety of reason but, just wanted to see if anyone could offer any reviews of what they've experienced on either the supermodel or the supermodel X from Burton. Was also considering the Burton 09 T6 wide. I'm about 5'10" and 250lbs after surgery. Any help would be appreciated thanks in advance.

The T6 is chattery in my opinion and not worth the money.

Just curious what are your sizes I mean i'm pretty damn big so there may be some differences. Gravity tends to latch on pretty good for me. Thanks for the reply by the way.

I'm 165 now and its chattery when I was 220 it was chattery. That aluminum core doesn't dissipate energy like it should.

Ok thanks for the input. I'm about 260 so maybe the t6 wouldn't be the best any one deal with the supermodel X the more I look at it the more I want it.

you'll be fine with a 164. I have a 164 burton triumph and it works very well for me and at the time I was riding I weighed like 255 but now I weigh like 240 cuz I quit football
