Thanks for the Advice!!!!

I have taken the Never Summer Premier out now about 6 times. I've ridden almost every condition but have been most impressed with the way this board handles in the worst East Coast icy crap that is typical here. I cant believe the handling and speed of this board and with a 3 year warrantee, it's like a sunburnt pecker, (you can't beat it)!. I abslutely love the F1 and thanks to you guys, saved about $150 over the Rice. Ghost Rider, I owe you a beer for your advice. I'll be up in VT for the next 2 weekends.

Ghost_Rider_X the 159 will be fine. i'm only 10 lbs. heavier and feel the 159 is super maneuverable. i almost wish i went with the 161, so the 159 should be perfect for you.

i'm up in jackson, nh right now about 5 minutes from wildcat. i'd say there's 10" going on a foot of fresh and its not supposed to stop until tomorrow night or early monday. unfortunately, they're forecasting 40 mph gusts tomorrow, but the rest of the week looks great.

Ruckin69 [QUOTE=Ghost_Rider_X;229116]awesome decision. lot of fresh snow here in the east coast, too bad you'll have to wait for shipping.

Just left Big Sky, Moonlight and Bridger Bowl on a great vacation. Where are you referring too out East? Paragon only has a 159 left. Do you think it's too big? Again I'm 5'7", 165 with a 10 shoe! Thanks

did i say that?? i don't ride union, but have no problem with them. very simple, essentially bulletproof bindings in my mind...perhaps a little overpriced, but what else is new with snowboard gear.
