pshhhh $25 standard shipping I just shipped a pair of Deltas AND a pair of boots 2nd-Day FedEx in a 20x12x12 box for only $17. You oughtta be able to ship a pair of Forces for about $11, tops.

But you're right you absolutely won't find 'em cheaper than that. Good price. Someone will be on this soon.

No worries. Still working on securing a board for them. Appreciate the post. Wouldn't have seen them otherwise.

Question

Question Bump.

I've been reading the L/XL Union Force is a little on the big side. I've got size 11 feet. Should I consider going to a wide board to make sure I've got plenty of heel/toe clearance? I'm a fan of deep pumping carving. I usually crank at pretty steep angles, so the last thing I need is to catch a toe in the middle of a deep cut.

I'm 6'2 - 170 lbs. Incredibly torn between a skate banana or the NS SL. I plan on mixing it up between free ride and some jibblets/kickers.

Thoughts?

been riding a "wide" board(s) for years and at size 11 I'll tell you that you probably don't need it. next board I'm gonna buy will probably not be "wide".

The NS SL doesn't come in a wide. You have to get the legacy and the waist on that is like 265mm which is pretty beefy. Not sure about the banana's specs. You'll be fine around 255 assuming you have a moderately wide stance at 6'2".

Now if the binding itself is too big for the board you might but I'd be surprised if the bindings are too large for the board; i got an old pair of L/XL Drakes that almost fit on a 145 board.

I knew the SL didn't come in a wide. My mistake for not clarifying. That's the main reason I asked in the first place. I'd hate to drop so much on a NS board and not have it be heaven on the slopes. The only reason I'm considering the banana is the additional rocker. Spent many years skateboarding and would love to ollie and press more. I know the SL has RC tech, but I think straight rocker would give me a bit more give. At least how I understand it.

regardless, thanks for the heads up on width. Was enough to make me nervous.

@Nefarious 255 on the 161cm SL that should be OK if not a little long for you but at the 155 length the SL is only 251 and that's narrow enough to scare me away

just checked specs on the banana, it's 255 for the 156 and 159

Good to know. I'm most likely going for the 161 for the extra length. I'm more interested in hitting natural stuff than the park, so the SL is probably a better choice than the banana. Thanks much for the advice.

Now someone buy my guitar and djembe so I can order this bad boy.
