Just noticed it is an actual pic. But dunno which size coz I'm on my phone and quality sucks.

The one in the pic looks like the usual wear and tear. Nothing looks bad on it. Base is actually really good condition.

But do what I said earlier. Contact for pics of the 166 and also NS about this site.

Do you think he needs to go that big?

My Legacy is a 163. I bought it at around 250lbs and rode it this season at 275lbs without feeling sketchy..

As for the board, you could even go with the Heritage since you have zero park aspirations. Same stiffness as the Legacy but it's damper. It does have cabonium though which raises the price another $50.

Also, I am assuming it is one of the lesser used sizes. There aren't too many riders looking for 166w boards.

Another option to consider is the Heritage. It's going to be much more stable than the SL.

I might actually recommend it over the SL because the SL is still a freestyle board.

Yea see this is the kind of advice I need. Do I need a 166? Maybe I'm off base on that. Maybe the reason my 164 doesn't feel solid at high speeds is because of it's flex level or whatever. I'm a dumb fuck when it comes to this stuff, so the advice is surely appreciated.

So on that demo, it gives it a base rating of 3 which means "Average product - Graphics are very scuffed and faded from more than one season of use as a rental. Multiple scuffs, scratches, and nicks will be evident on this product ranging from 1 inch in size to 3 inches in size with possible slices on sidewalls. These still have plenty of use left in them; they are our most popular sellers and are a great deal."

I think I might be inclined to spend the extra bit to have a new board. Maybe I can wait and catch a sale, I'm in no huge hurry right now and still researching.

Technically Sam, you are on a freestyle size. And we all know you were working on freestyle. Also, you were supposed to lose weight haha.

A 163 is my powder board size. Jay rides a 162 Heritage and he doesn't weigh as much as you guys, but he also does 0 freestyle.

Technically speaking, even a 166 is on the shorter side for 260lbs. But for Michigan, it's good.
