Soo my board got stolen in Dec., and after riding rental boards hoping it will turn up I'm going to get a new one.
I snowboard all-mountain, with an emphasis on steeps (still working on em), jumps, moderate spins/grabs, tree runs, and drops. I'm pretty set on traditional camber, here although I wouldn't be opposed to a little rocker outside the feet, and magnetraction is out of the question, but mellow magnetraction is a must.
I also want to make sure that my boots will fit my bindings/board...
I wear a size 11.5 Burton Ruler (2012, I believe these have the Footprint Reduction Tech), weigh 170lbs and am 5'10"
I'm looking at the 161cm Slash ATV HUB
and the Medium/Large Union SL
Obviously I am open to other suggestions, and want to make the best choice possible for the type of riding/terrain I encounter...
The Burton Custom X is on my radar but it is pricey, more directional, and perhaps a bit too aggressive of a freeride board, but maybe I'm wrong. The Union ATLAS is also on my radar but for the money the SL seems to take the cake...but I'm posting to get some feedback on these decisions before I pull the trigger.
