Burton Troop

My first board is a burton troop 155 ( no worries i am not a guy). This board has done everything I wanted it to do. I have been riding it the past two years and it withstood some pretty nasty falls. It's nice and bendy but not too much. The control I get is purely amazing. I find myself very comfortable on all terrain. However, the park ( it could just be me) is sometimes a challenge. The board is quite thin so getting those lucky breaks on rails doesn't happen often.

Have you experience with riding a different board, even for a day orso? Then you can really compare, in my experience. I rode a month with my Burton Cruzer, and I thought it was completely over the top. Untill I bought a Rome Agent... Basicly I cannot say anything about this board now (the board itself is jumpaddicted, now I am too).

A more general question, what is the difference between boards for girls/man in difference. Aside from the availability in lenghts and graphics, is there something else?

Yea, I've experimented with the Cruzer and Feather, both boards didn't work for me as well as the troop. I guess its just my personal preference. I know for sure my opinion will change once I start expanding my board collection ( someday when i get some more cash).
The main difference between women-specific and guy-specific boards is just the size. Often you'll find womens boards a little more narrow because of foot size.There are some other modifications because women have a lower center of gravity then men. The weight range is also a little lower.
