Anyone at NS can pull up some stats on this?

Thanks
My new 2012 167 is lighter than my old 2008(?) Heritage that I sold last year. The Rocker design along with the taper makes the board feel even lighter. I am sold on the split version for BC pow hunting.

Construction efficiency of design has increased with every year at the factory in my observation.

Flex is medium flex (definitely not a jib board... but not a super stiff freeride board either) - has a good quick snap in the tail that seems to come with carbonium boards (lke the Proto CT).

It is a setback, tapered board so you need to shorten your turns to make them a little more slashy (otherwise you run out of board on the tail end and will wash out). What is surprising is that it holds an edge on windblown hardpack a lot better than some other powder boards I've ridden (the 1st Gen Burton Fish was horrible on icy traverses).

Switch riding and jumps can be done... but not ideal for it. Same with jibbing... i've done nose presses and bs boardslides on a wide rail it as there is a park just before the Summit Six lift at Alpine Meadows - but it's that mostly just screwing around.

Other Powder boards I've ridden: 1st Gen Burton Fish (2005), Prior Khyber 156, Prior Khyber Splt 160, Rad Air Tanker 172, OSin 4807 178

About Myself:
I am 5'9' 150", I've been riding for about 500 days (15 years x 30 days a season - I find counting days ridden a better indicator of experience). I would consider myself an expert level freerider which can ride any pretty much run on the mountain out here in the West (there are some particularly gnarly chutes/runs that skiiers seem to like that I general avoid), can drop chutes and medium sized cornices and cliffs (5-10 feet). Here's a video of what happens when I try to drop a cornice that is greater than 10 ft...

haha, at least you got up and road off smoothly.

Snowboards - The Boardroom

Snowboards - Alter Ego Sports :: Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada

Ordered from both sites and they are great.

Alter Ego seems to have their year-model messed up, but you sould be able to figure it out. For example, this year's board are labelled '12 instead of '13...
