Powder snake/Charlie slasher
i am currently looking for a powder board (on a budget) and based on what i read i think i have restricted my choice to these two boards.
i will be using it on the italian alps, so not a lot of powder and usually quite wet and heavy.
i am 6"2 and 185lbs, and i currenlty own a twin tip volkl vice sqd 159.
should i get the salomon, i think i would buy the 163, but what about the charlie?
should i go with the 164 as well? if this is the case i think i can get a good deal on this year's model. otherwise i can maybe think of next year's 161?
i have seen a 2012 powder snake online @ 240 €: is it very different from this year's model? this might be a killer deal i think.
lastly: up until now i have always ridden a twin stance (12/-12) but with this deck i would like to try a more directional one.
i am a bit scared of going fully directional though: might be something like 21/-6 a good starting point?
