Hey all, first post!
Me in a nutshell
* skill level 4 out of 10
* 27 yrs old, 155lbs, 5'10"
* usually ride at Big Bear, Mammoth, and a Whistler trip coming soon
* like cruising at a brisk pace on groomers and cutting through trees
* my girlfriend loves the park, but its not really for me (maybe a jump if im feeling stupid)
Always rented and now its time for my own gear. Im treating myself, I'll spend the extra cash to get a better quality product. Got a Burton proform hookup from a good friend, so their gear is what I'm focusing on due to the savings.
My research has lead me to the P1.1sz and the CO2s. Seems the CO2s are stiffer, its been recommended that I stay medium flex which makes me think the P1.1sz will be more comfortable and better suited for me. I don't know anything about the speed strap on the P1.1, anyone use it? Is my riding style telling me to get the P1.1sz over the CO2? FWIW, I was thinking about pairing this with the Burton Ions.
Your opinions, impressions, and recommendations are appreciated (in my other Lib Tech T.Rice or Burton Custom X thread too). Please give your reasoning, rather than saying something like "Burton sucks b/c everyone rides it".
