Martinduc Ringo : Pretty easy to turn... The new BSOD is less stiff and easier to navigate... IMO 159 is no problem at all around trees...

i think quite a few people have found that the charlie is pretty decent outside of the deep stuff

futurefunk How's the board ride in powder? Capita's got the Charlie Slasher which looks great in pow, but limited to just that.

Sir Ringo Thanks guys, and Martin great to have your first-hand input again. Does the 159 feel cumbersome at all around moguls or tight tree runs? Leaning towards that for now but not 100% decided.

Martinduc I weight just like you and i'm riding 159.

Alkasquawlik Get the 159. 2 cms between that and your Skierra board isn't going to make a difference.

Buying new Capita BSoD - 156 vs 159

So as the title suggests, I'm planning on buying the new Capita Black Snowboard of Death but am torn on size. I'm 6'0" and 165+lbs. Generally an all-mountain/freeride rider - I spend most of my time on normal runs (including some moguls), like to hit jumps and love going into the trees but rarely go into the park. I'm coming from a Sierra Team 157cm that seems the right length and I'm leery of going to a 159 in the Capita for the potential added difficulty on mogul and tree runs. That said, one of the main things I dislike about my current board is the way it gets thrown around in choppy conditions and that's something I want the new board to improve upon, so am similarly concerned the 156 is going to be a bit too short. Any opinions? I live in the northeast but go for a long trip out west at least once per season so see everything from terrible ice to fresh powder.
