Found mine on Mountainshop.net but it looks like they are out of stock now.

Bear42 Just pulled the trigger on the 2012 Blacklist 160, and decided to order some Rome 390 Boss bindings to pair with it after reading several other threads. Thanks for the input, I'm stoked for new setup.

(Sintered vs extruded). I have to buy it right? In 160 that is. Have a little somethin left over for some new bindings...
Definitely. Get the 160. You'll love it.

Softer nose / stiffer tail = a little less performance riding switch. Not too dramatic but for a park focussed person I'd also recommend the Blacklist.

Nivek Blacklist, but get the 160. You won't get enough meat out of it in the 57 to be comfortable on any jumps bigger than 25ft. It will still be plenty playful and jibbable.

Sweet vids. That's exactly the kind of stuff I was talking about. For a second there I was leaning towards the Blacklist but I'm still undecided, I think it would be a good flex for me but I prefer the camber profile of the NS. The only reason I say that is because I've talked to a lot of riders who experienced too much washout with pure reverse cambers and a little more difficulty stomping bigger landings. If I got a 160 Revolver instead of a 158 Proto CTX would the added board of the 160 take away some of the noodle in the Revolver and give them comparable flexes?
I looked into the Coda and saw it's a directional board whereas I'm more interseted in more of a true twin.

I think it should be fine.
