ZeMax I love to carve and ride soft/med flex board too.

I really liked the burton Malavitas and just switched to Flow's NX2-AT.

Using Burton driver X boots.

NX2-AT is a great interface for carving. Evidence A:

I think Linville bought the 158 and I think he mentioned he weighs ~200lbs. Templar 158cm would feel noodley for someone who weighs ~200lbs. I think Rossi's max weight recommendation for Templar 158cm is 185lbs.

I have the 155cm and I weigh 155lbs and it feels softer side of medium to me. Especially the nose.

Why are you now telling him to get a different board and giving no input on the bindings for the board he just bought?

Templar is a solid intermediate board, very cheap on sale, and more suited to learning carving and riding groomers. Higher quality base as well. $150 at evo outlet. Check the reviews on goodride and angrysnowboarder. I keep pushing it on intermediates and they love it.
