I mean I'm sure its fine on your baby hills with 250ft of vert or in the park but an SL isn't really suited for those purposes.
It's only my second board, coming from a full camber K2 Union 164w. So this thing is a bit twitchy, but still fast. Rode glades for the first time last weekend and had a blast. Didn't sink when I was off trail. So far it's been fine for everything I've used it for. There might be better out there, but I don't get to demo tons of shit, and I'm not gonna stress about a bunch of what it's.

Frozone10 I have been riding the new 2014 cobra for this year and I'm not disappointed. It is an all mountain machine. It's best on groomers and tree runs, when I took it out in some powder it had good float, just a couple of times where the nose sunk into the pow but other than that if was fine. NS has a 3 year guarantee, so can't go wrong with that. Haven't really taken it into the park but I get lots of lift off natural features. I'm 5"11 and 160 by the way and ride a 155 which feels nice and controlled.

scotty100 That's Evo's weight chart, not NS's (something pointed out in millions of other threads if search function had been used by OP...). NS deliberately do not publish weight recs for their boards - they believe it's all about rider feel and purpose etc...
