francium The nose isn't loose it's just wide and long so you get a bit of chatter from it. This board kills it on groomers. The first time I rode mine was in Scotland on bulletproof groomers and it was great and if you stick it in powder it's just quality people who say this board is soft are probably too heavy for it.

madmax It's supposed to have a loose nose and a stiffer tail. some people may have thought the nose was a little squirrel-y.

I want to try the HC and the Rossi XV which is the opposite, stiff nose and loose tail just to see the difference.

Want to demo both next season.

Tatanka Head Stoked!! After more research (both in shop and online) I found a 164 in Austria and pulled the trigger on it. All this talk about hovercrafts being a noodle seems to contradict what I've seen. Even on a 160 in the shop with bindings and boots, the board wasn't super flexible. Ok, the extended nose has some flex, but the tail and board under foot isn't loose. Anyway, stoked on the new find. I told myself I wouldn't get new bindings, but I can't help but shop around for them just for fun

Kevin137 Always worth dropping them an email, too make sure they actually have them, and also to see if they would do a deal...

francium Next year's is the same board but the price is going up.

Tatanka Head Nice, good looking out. Now why aren't their Jones boards on sale when the rest of them are. Full retail this time of year and I'd be better off just buying next years. Their sales look decent on the other boards. I'll keep my eye on them for sure. Thanks!

Tatanka Head Hope dies last!

I'll be keeping my eyes open. I think I've checked all major online retailers, at this point I'm hoping some shop worker employee sees this and hooks it up.

Kevin137 Had a look here in Norway for you, and nothing that size, nothing in the UK either...

Think you are going to have to wait for next season or choose something else...

Tatanka Head Exactly. I did find one on Amazon, but it is used and they offer no information on the board or pictures. Used can mean a lot of things, and the price isn't reduced much beyond what I see the 160's selling for. I'm tempted to go for a 160, but I'm riding at around 110-115kg including gear and extra cake. The would be a bit short.

I did ride the 156, and as nice as it was, it was easily too small. I only rode it for the sake of riding it.
