Regular vs. Wide Burton Boards
Hey I'm looking at some boards and trying to tell how much difference there is between a wide board and some of the regular boards. It seems that there really isn't much width difference between wide and regular. For example:
Burton Sherlock 162 wide: 29.7/26/29.7 centimeters
Burton Sherlock 160 reg : 29.06/25.4/29.06 centimeters
Burton Sherlock 157 reg : 28.88/25.3/28.88 centimeters
So the difference seems to be less than 1cm, right? How much difference can that really make?
Burton Custom Flying V 156: 25.3 centimeters
I tried out a Burton Process Flying V 159 (25.5cm width) this season and it seemed ok for me (although I'm still a beginner so I probably can't tell if there's a problem like toe overlap). I have a pretty big foot (size 12 or 12.5 usually), weigh 185lbs, and am 6'2". I have DC Judge BOA boots size 12.
I'm leaning towards the sherlock 162 wide but wide doesn't seem to be that much different and maybe it makes sense to get a shorter board? (buying from a place with only these sizes)
Thanks for any advice!
PS. what does everyone think about the Burton Super hero with nag raduction? Is that a viable board for me?
