GetFit13 Already ordered the 150 this morning. I think at my height ill be fine, and I not I have a 154 all mountain board that I can still use I just hate it for te park. It's stiff as hell. I paid 190 w delivery on a 2012 close out sale so if I'm not that happy w the smaller board, ill give it to my little bro haha.

sk8_choco21 Go with the 153, I'm 145 riding the artifact 150 and it was working fine, I just picked up a Ride Machete 152 for jumping and stuff i felt the 150 artifact was a little small and squirrelly at high speeds even for me at 5'9 145, so if I were you, being 180, I'd go with the 153.

GetFit13 Notice how I didn't state that until 50 posts later.

Only reason I brough that up is because the tech on the phone told me if I was 180 and fat I'd have trouble maneuvering a smaller board by he said due to the fact that I'm heavier, but fit, a smaller board will be no problem for me to maneuver and ill be able to control the weight on my body over the smaller board opposed to being fat and not very agile.

That's just what he said-any ways for you park riders, what do you feel my best bet is, the 150 or the 153. Like I said its all rails and jumping, occasionally a couple runs where I'm just messing around doing presses down the hill but never really spending a day just going for speed through tree runs or doing anything I really need a larger board for. I jus want to make sure my weight won't affect me to negatively on the smaller board because as far as park goes I think the smaller board would be much more fun.

Just looking for some guidance.

He said the board isn't going to snap and since I'm 180 an athletic, not obese at 5'5 I will have no problem maneuvering the board and picking up speed on it.

Final opinions? Rome artifact rocker 150, or 153?
Not trying to be a smartass but the comment of being 180 athletic not obese is a really dumb assessment. 180 is 180. Do you think the board is going to check you BMI before you strap in?

GetFit13 I decided on the artifact. The shank is double the budget for this season.

Now it's just deciding the size. 150 or 153

ThunderChunky Artifact and Mod are different boards. Don't get me wrong, the Artifact can still do what the Mod can. But not as well. The Artifact is a noodley jib/park oriented board and the Mod Rocker is a park/ all mountain board. They both can hold their own outside of their specialties, but aren't going to be superb. Those are the stats, it's up to you to take it and decide what you like best. Ride them if you get the chance before buying them.

GetFit13 No what's the shank?

And the artifact has a 150 but it says max weight is 170, kind of wanted a shorter board, I enjoy it more for spins and want to begin flipping this year but I don't plan on cutting weight so I'm assuming the 153 has to suffice unless you guys think I'm safe on a 150 being over weight 10-15lbs

Have you checked out the shank you can get on the 49 just fine with a 10.
