No wrong decision Templar or OneMag!
Catchy? Just detune the tip & tale of your board six inches with a file problem solved. YouTube has a # vids showing how.

Just to update on my decision - I went with the 159 OneMag and really love the board. It is responsive, stable, and quick from edge to edge. The Magnatraction is awesome for the East coast ice. There are times when the edge does feel catchy, but I'm not sure if that is me getting used to the board or if it is the Magnatraction.
Overall, I couldn't be happier with my board.

|SnowDogWax||I ride a 159W Templar i'm 6'3" 220lbs was 230lbs I use the Templar as my mogul & the end of the day all mountain freestyle board. I't quick and responsive edge to edge forgiving and stable and almost catch free. This is not a hard charging highspeed freeride board like the Rossi Krypto or even the Rossi OneMag.|

I am 6 feet tall 205 and I ride the 158 Templar. It is a great size for me. I previously was on the 162 GNU billy goat which is a fantastic board. But the Templar just blew me away and for only 160 from evo its a steal.
Only problem I currently have with this board is its a little squirly at high speeds or when going through chum. But I think that has to do with how light this is. It weighs 6lbs 5oz for the 158 my Billy goat 162 was close to 2.5-3lbs heavier.

|SnowDogWax||158 Regular could be fine, but if you will be doing jumps or park get the wide board.|

|diver1183||Just spoke to a customer service dude at evo who said the Templar runs a bit narrow, and I should go with the wide (its only 1cm wider) for a size 10/10.5 boot. Should I ignore him and go with the 158 regular anyways?|

Alright, so I'm pretty sold on the Rossignol Templar and thought I was gonna do the 159 wide, but it turns out I don't necessarily NEED a wide board. I thought I was a size 12 boot, my shoe size is 12, but apparently I can squeeze into a size 10/10.5. So my boots could probably just squeeze on a regular width 158 Templar - which has a 250cm waist width. However, I looked at the recommended weight range, and I am at the very top of it at 175lbs. I'm also 6ft tall, so 158 would be about the shortest I could go.
From your guys' knowledge/experience, do you think I'll be good on the 158 regular? Or do I need to bump up to the 159 wide, or 162 wide (all the longer sizes are wide)?

The biggest issue I have with the current One MagTek is the 7M "full" Magnetraction, it drags a bit on edge, especially when the snow gets soft.
They are apparently going to the minimal 5S profile next season: Rossignol 2014-2105 Snowboards (see page 6)
Both are great boards, but I currently like the Templar better than my 3 year old One.
