Actually that one I think was just lack of sales and it was more a team driven board. It was kind of a niche deck, those are always hard to keep in the line. If they had hyped it like they do the Nug it probably would have done better. But no one rode it.

But 1 out of 5 isn't exactly a good record either?

Why is this such a fuckin deal with you two? Did I say flat out the board was going to be shit? Nope, gave a fair warning of Burtons past with its profile. I'll say it a third time, I DO WANT THE TRICK PONY TO BE GOOD.

Just buy another Sherlock?

I have 2.

300 days? Lost a little pop? Sounds badass to me.

Looking at the Trick Pony myself for yet another option. Good price too. If it had the same sidecut as the Sherlock, I would get it now. Edit, it does, I dont remember why I thought it did not. Buying my first shorter board.....

Sherlock is so fine tuned I am surprised they are burying it so deep in the lineup. One of the all time classic snowboards IMO. Never seen anything else like it.

I'm thinking about the trick pony too. I got a 156 for my allmountain/pow deck atm. I'm 5'6 150# size 8 foot. Is 158 a little too big for me? 154 waist width seems so...

Yep.

I have the 163 Sherlock, and all my boards have been 162 or longer, save for my 160 fish.

what's your thought process behind choosing the 58 over the 62?

I thought the Trick Pony was a replacement for the Joystick. If I recall correctly they are both rocker boards and the Sherlock is their springloaded profile.

Just curious as to why you wouldn't just get another Sherlock if you liked it so much. I've always thought of it as a juiced up joystick and a very nice board.

To get a NUG or not to get a NUG, then I saw the trick pony.......i have a bunch of boards in the 162-3-5-8 range. Thought I would try a smaller board. Am I crazy as it is not much difference, eh?

Maybe I should just buy a NUG. I usually don't care about graphics, but truly none of the NUG's are very appealing, and the Trick Pony looks freaking RAD.
