Wiredsport Go for the Whatever 156 and the Feelgood 152 for her. Those are terrific choices, will set you up for great riding in a wide range of conditions and you can pick most of it up at blowout prices.

Robisten8 Wired,

I'm looking for a new Bataleon. I last rode an '09 Goliath 153, but stopped riding for a couple years. I have packed on a few pounds since then and looking for a new board. I was checking out the new Goliath's but can't find any in stock....anywhere! After reading/researching, I'm starting to wonder if it's still the right board for me.

Here's the info. No park, no jumping, just a 38 year old former wakeboarder looking to ride groomers and whatever powder I can find on the edges of blues and greens. My experience is limited on snow, but I'm a fast learner with wake experience. I'm 5'6" 170 size 9. The Whatever has intrigued me a bit as well.

So what call should I make, the Goliath or Whatever? Or another model?

I have a second part question as well. My wife is gonna be starting out as well, just her second time to try snow. Former competitive cheerleader that still has youth on her side at 27. She's very strong 5'04" 145ish and size 8 womens boot. I want to put her on a Bataleon as well and noticed you have a FeelBetter in 152.....Is that a good match for her. Love the price!

Wiredsport The Whatever 158W will be a great choice for your specs. It will be amazing all around and easy to press for you.

Happy riding!

snoWorm Great thread ... (read 12 pages that almost helped me)

Decide to go with Bataleon this year, and try to find out which board is best for my riding!
No big jumps, no Tube, no rails for me! Trying butters, presses and spins on the ground, trying ollies ,little jumps over things I see on ground (learning pretzel, trying very small jumps with grabs,180 and all this staff, learning on this staff).

Looking for Whatever but I am not sure if it is too stiff, cause I really want to press it down but while I am riding! Also looking at GW but I worried if it is similar to urban boards flex .

Whatever 158W
G.W. 156W
or something else ?

6.1 height , 180lbs , size 13 and... trying to go to the next level!

What do you think?

blunted_nose One last question, wiredsport, what snowboard if i want the widest tbt possible and sintered base? Boards im choosing from are: ET, whatever, Airobic, Gulli edition or Global warmer. I want sintered base and soft. I might go with whatever but the blunted shape isnt as pronounced as other boards.
EDIT- and im not getting the goliath because if i like tbt, then ill sell my goat and buy something with tbt that is similar to my billy goat.

BigO5659 Hey WiredSport, I'm going to be picking up a 159 Whatever from you guys with some TT30's. (stats are 5'7 205 lbs size 10 boot Intermediate rider, groomers and park only for now), really stoked that loast year's model is still in stock for a good price haha. I need a setup recommendation for my girl who is 5'0 125lbs size 5-5.5 boot beginner rider. I was thinking the Feel Better but have no idea what size and I have not used the Flow design bindings so I was wondering if they're good to learn on. 'Preciate it!
