Im another noob attracted by this particular post.. I've been hanging around for a while but decided to join up and start contributing.
I've been snowboarding for about 12 years, and for the vast majority of that time have been based in the UK so only make it out once a year really.. sometimes twice..
I have been riding a salomon fastback 163 for some time (I'm 6" tall and about 190lbs) but am finding it way too stiff to get anything more than a mini-Ollie out of it and don't feel like I am progressing.
I reckon the assassin would be a good replacement for me as it should give me a bit more flex for some jumping about, but still give me a good all-terrain board for those powder days and corduroy morning pistes..
What would you say?
