Review: 2011 status Focus 158

I'm 5'10, 194lbs, intermediate-advanced freerider.
stance width/angle 22-3/4" - +12/-9
This is my fourth season riding and the Focus is my second board with NX2-AT bindings. I have ridden this board for about close to 3 months now, thanks to Suddendeath for mentioning the Status company and their crazy sale.
First impression of the board is it is light. It is a directional twin but I have my bindings set at a centered stance(I got it close to 1/8 on tip and tail). This is probably the closes to the NS board i'll ever have since it has the NS tech on it.

Carving on this is awesome! it holds edge real well especially if you dig down more. transitioning edge to edge is easy and quick, pretty damn responsive but it can take you if you get too lazy.
On bumps and steeps is where I love this board. I been practicing bumps since last season with my Ride antic 163 (flat with lowrize rocker) and with the RC tech and being 158 it was night and day. The steeps is much easier to navigate, and also this board is forgiving even when the chutes get chopped up by skiers
Powder riding on this on a setback stance was great. It floated well on a 9 to 11" fresh snow on top of more previous snow at Grand Targhee , I only went over the handle bar once when I leaned over to much to iniatiate my turn,ooopps! I have also rode it on centered stance with a foot of new snow here at my home mountain and it was good, a bit of leaning back but the freaking thing floated well.

All in all, for $118.00 I spent on this last spring, I am a very happy rider
