|dicetherice||You guys are positive that the Pickle will be too big? Pretty much between that and the box scratcher now due to the width issue of the Skate Banana. I think that if the pickle fit me I'd rather go for it but I definitely don't want something that's too big. GNU has the pickle between 70-150 lbs so I am about in the middle.|

|dicetherice||So the box scratcher is the same width as the board I have right now, and the banana is 6mm narrower. Like I said there's already a bit of overhang so I'm worried about going any shorter.|

|SnowDogWax||Skate banana is the call it will do fine in powder when your out west. Better riders than me use it as an all mountain/park board|

|dicetherice||Yea after looking at the burtner box it looks like the best option ive seen so far. I'm a little worried about it on jumps but I think I'm going to go with that board. Thanks for the help!|

|Riley212||the skate banana might be a little narrow on second thought, the burtner box scratcher comes in a 143, and is .6 cm wider, it's flex is a little softer than a skate banana. Even though its Libs jib board it does well all over the mountain.|

OK did some more research using the advice you guys gave:
Skate banana 145 looks like the winner right now. Seems to fit about what I want in a board. Would narrow still fit my boot size?
Shank scares me a little because of the "designed to run longer" part. I looked at the size chart and I am at the bottom of the weight range.
other boards I was looking at was:
Arbor draft 143 - but it looks a little more of a jib board than what I want
Ride Buckwild 149 - according to their size chart I am actually in the slightly higher end of the weight range for that board. Does anybody have experience with ride boards and the way they are sized?
Ride OMG 144 or 147 - womans board that looks like it would be a good fit, graphic isnt too girly.

I was 5'6" and 125 for years until I turned 25.
How bout a Rome shank 145. It's a short board designed to run longer. Good pop.

you could probably fit on the lib tech skate banana 145 narrow.
Another option is buying women's boards; although not really appealing to your sense of manhood, they are built for people your size. Find one without too much pink and enjoy a properly sized board.

Thanks for the help guys
