forum grudge size

I'm interested in buying the forum grudge.

I'm 5'10 180lbs, what size should I get? 156 or 158? longer?

My last board is OLD... it's a 164cm Rossi Rocal that's a decade in age... I'm due.

I'm also thinking about a Burton T6 or Idiom.

I typically ride groomers, through the park the odd time but rarely backcountry.

Any other recommendations appreciated,
Thanks in advance

Since you ride groomers and backcountry, I'd go with the 158. Just because its longer and would go through powder better than the shorter board.

Planning on inbounds pow riding? 156 is a little pushing it, but doable.

THERE ARE SPECIFIC REASONS AS TO WHY I AM MORE LOCAL THAN YOU

I am 5'11" 160lbs, and ride a 158. It does good in the park, good in the powder. Some days I wish I had a shorter board for jibbing. Thats why I am going to save up and buy a jib stick.

Im 6'0 and 175 and I ride a 156, even thinking of stepping down to a 154 but I feel like that might be too small.

I throw around my girlfriends 148 in my room because her bindings fit around my shoes

wide boards

How would it affect performance if I bought a 156 or 158 wide board? My feet are size 9.5-10 but I've noticed that wide boards are recommended for feet sz'd 11.5 and up.

I totally thought 156cm would've been too small. I'm going up in a CAT in March but they're going to have Burton powder boards to ride for free so I was thinking of all all mountain / freeride board that was at least 160cm. From all your comments, sounds like 156cm would work just fine.

Thanks again,
