Ten I have a 12/13 TFA and flagship.

The TFA I have in a 161..its very aggressive...great on ice, carves well, very stable / locked in feel and hell does it go fast. Its a midwide so a bit laggy edge to edge I found, its also quite stiff and heavy so can punish your legs. I weigh quite a bit though which I think helped push it about. Its mostly a twin shape with a slight setback, so not to bad switch. Not tried it in pow yet. Fantastic board though, just thumps it down the whole mountain like a tank.

The flagship I have in 164. Again reasonably aggressive not quite as much as the TFA I found and even though it was stable I didnt feel as locked in as on the TFA. However, edge to edge its a beast, it just rolls under your feet and its a little more forgiving on the legs. Great on ice to, carves amazingly well. Directional so not so good switch. Pow floats along very nicely. Also another fantastic stupid fast board.

Tough choice picking between the two. TFA is just a monster and felt such a solid ride across the entire mountain, however I just had more fun on the flagship.

Uga_fan So many questions. As far as size goes, I am definitely looking to go shorter, but don't really know what size with what board would fit my foot/height/weight; and, will that vary from board to board based on cut and profile?

Long time lurker needs a new board. What's your top 3-4 All Mountain Freeride boards?

Long time lurker here. A little about me. I am 38 year old male who has been riding for the last 13 years. I live in the South East and only get ~ 7-10 days a year on the mountain. I spend those days in Co, Ut, Wy, Mo, ect. No east coast riding. My current board is an old Burton Canyon 162 that I have had for 12 of those 13 years. I wear a size 10.5 Burton Grail boot in Large Flow NX2-AT's. I am 5' 11'' @ 195-205 lbs. I spend all of my time on the mountain in bowls, back country, trees, groomers, ect. Don't go into the park except to mess around on my way down the mountain. I would consider myself an aggressive boarder. Looking for a new all mountain board. I have spent hours looking over reviews and am trying to narrow it down to 3-4 to choose from. Because of my situation, I am going to have to buy to try. Lmk what you got and thank for your opinion.
