flips712 So, what board and size did you end up buying? I'm the same size as you and looking to upgrade my board.

radiomuse210 Thanks for your thoughts...I think the Raven is too long and stiff for what I'm trying to do. Looking for the chatter is a good tip.

czoid74 this going to be there first year on the ns boards, last year my wife was on a capita space metal fantasy which is flat/rocker and a capita saturnia regular camber, they were both soft boards a 4 in flex , my daughter was on a ride board it was a flat base, they were all over the mountain , not bombing of cliffs or nothing ,but we were going down double blacks and dabling in the park a bit my 8 year old daughter like going thru the park, we started out on stiff camber boards, but we like soft playfull boards, they way i figure is when ever we start to here the board chatter thats when we will move up to a stiffer board...i was on a capita horrorscope flat/rocker and a ns evo 154 last year, this year i moved up to a 157 ns evo,,,you can get the ns raven thats the stiffest in the ladys ns line... but it just depends on what kind of riding you do...

radiomuse210 When I compare the two boards on my feet on carpet (since there is no snow yet!) I find the Onyx easier to move onto an edge and easier to move between the two edges. I don't have to apply as much pressure. The Burton actually made my legs ache a little as I held the edge on the carpet but the Onyx was nice. I really like that. My only concern is the speed factor and washing out in a carve if I get to a nice cruising speed. But I guess the only way to get concrete answers is to ride it. :P I've heard that it has a nice all-mountain feel to it and can keep up at mountain/cruising speeds, but not fast/bomber speeds (which I don't do anyway). If anyone has any input or experience, please throw it in.

radiomuse210 How does your wife like the Onyx? Is she able to cruise around the mountain at a decent speed? And is the Pandora a decent board as well? Really I'm curious about the flex more than the size. I'm comfortable at the size I'm at but I just want to make sure that the Onyx isn't going to be too flexy to do some cruisin' around the mountain.

Oh awesome thanks! I couldn't find a size chart anywhere.

radiomuse210 Is she able to cruise the mountain smoothly as well as hit the park? That's probably my main question...thanks for the input!
