SnowDogWax Agree with most of the post, get the larger length board.

It's pretty amazing how the price on those keeps dropping and evo still has a ton of stock. They must have made a TON of these.

I think it's a situation where evo just WAY overbought. They are way, WAY cheaper than anyone else on this stick. They must be sitting on a metric shit ton of them.

diver1183 Alright, so I'm pretty sold on the Rossignol Templar and thought I was gonna do the 159 wide, but it turns out I don't necessarily NEED a wide board. I thought I was a size 12 boot, my shoe size is 12, but apparently I can squeeze into a size 10/10.5. So my boots could probably just squeeze on a regular width 158 Templar - which has a 250cm waist width. However, I looked at the recommended weight range, and I am at the very top of it at 175lbs. I'm also 6ft tall, so 158 would be about the shortest I could go.

From your guys' experience, do you think I'll be good on the 158 regular? Or do I need to bump up to the 159 wide, or 162 wide (all the longer sizes are wide)? Or should wide be avoided when possible?

Thanks!

I always found my One MagTek too "sticky" with its full Magnetraction, so was excited that Rossi entered into the .5 Mag game. I think I'll retire the One now. If they offer the One in a .5 Mag, they might get me to go back to it as the additional stiffness is appreciated.

This board is Rossi's answer to the Jones Mountain Twin and they've succeeded well... except for the lame graphics as others have stated.

I may pick up a 162 MW at the end of season sales for a single quiver when flying to cut down the weight of two boards.

DaryleTN I weight 225 and I'm 5'9.. I'm short but heavy... My best friend went with us on the trip and he is your size, 6'3" and 190lbs. He tried my board out and loved it when carving, but he did not like it at all when he tried to bomb down the slope. He said the same thing I did about it being unstable. Since the tips are rockered it wants to float a little more than I would like. I do like however, on the board they put arrows showing exactly where the transition is from Camber to Rocker. An instructor up there recommended widening my stance in order to pressure more of the rocker into the snow, but I can't really do that comfortably since I have the stature of an Umpa Loompa...

Again just going by what I was told.. but the instructors exact words were " going fast and rocker should never be in the same sentence unless it's followed by NO"... At least if you someone who rides a lot of groomers and icy/pack... It's not enough for me to be disapointed in the board but enough to make me wish I would have gone larger...

Unkept Porpoise My buddy ordered one and he was riding it last weekend. Says he loved it.

blackbeard haha! no no, i just don't want the guy to think he should factor in a helmet or other stuff.

@DaryleTN -- what is your weight and height? Your experience is making me rethink the 158.
