I got a cs 164, 180#...the cs is great of deep bottomless....like waist to titty deep. It floats like a dream with the taper tail and shovel rocker nose, is stiff enough to blast through chop, do drops in the the bottomless and the reason it works on groomers is due to the cambered tail. Honestly, I only take it out on really deep days and imo it excels in big open cruising, it works in trees cause it floats and is manageable on the groomers. However, I'd be a bit reluctant to take it as an only board unless you are guarenteed deep bottomless fluff.
If you want something for knee or thigh deep, more playful perhaps the pow snake...but I have never ridden one and for me it depends on how stiff the rocker is...if its too soft it just folds up in the deep when you are trying to have fun...which is not helpful
