Yeah, I know I should be up there for sizing. I'm just used to riding smaller boards all of my life. I guess I'm just waiting for someone to say there isn't much difference between those two sizes, or you'd much more stable on landings with the 156, or that board rides bigger than it seems, etc.
Thanks for the input!

|Wombat401||You would be at the top of the weight range for a 158. I am at the top of the weight range for a 146 birds of a feather and it's a good size for me.|

OK, I know this kind of question gets put through the wringer time and again, and with my time on the snow, I should know better by now, but here goes:
Say I wanted the Capita DOA, should I go with the 154 or 156 per my stats in the first post?
My WWW is 152 now and I love the short lenth for spinning, etc. but they do say you size that board down 5 cm, so it rides like a 157.

I'm currently riding a pickle used it as my one board quiver for 2 seasons now continuous rocker love it but once it gets broken in its more of a jib/park board so after a bunch of research I ordered a TRS just got to me today.
I see plenty of DOAs on the mountain my girl rides a Birds of a Feather pretty much female DOA and it rips. It's not the easiest to initiate a turn and may be a bit stiff for what you want. Plus the DOA is a hybrid camber board. You will not get that loose skatey feel from rocker but you will feel more stable and locked in.
I would check out the GNU Forest Bailey Space Case.

Never summer gets a lot of love on here, and there has been backlash against that as all things go, and then there was a brouhaha over some review boards but fuck all of that. Just ignore it who cares.
When you're on the mountain riding with your buddies or family (or by yourself) and getting stoked, think you give a fuck what some board members think? Shit's not even real. It's all digital man!

@ Eat Sleep Shred
What's the scoop on Never Summer? Sorry - I guess I'm outta the loop on company politics, etc. these days?

I personally am looking for something a bit softer like the k2 www, but if I wanted something a bit firmer then the k2 www, I would get what I ride now:

I have a 2012 TRS 157 and a 2013 NS Proto 157. I really like both boards. The Proto has been my daily board since the fall of 2011 (I had the 2012 CTX 158 first). It is an awesome board that does everything well. I still ride it every chance I get.
The TRS is something that I bought when I broke another board and needed something to ride. It was cheap because it is blem (top sheet printed backwards) and a demo board. I thought I would ride it a few times and keep it as my rock board. I was surprised by how much I love riding it. The board is light, very poppy and has fantastic edge hold. It is my new favorite board because it is just a bit stiffer than my Proto and has better edge hold. The Proto jumps better but everything else is pretty even between them.

|Eat Sleep Shred||I don't think I've ever heard one bad thing about the DoA, but I've really never even seen one on the hill. I have heard they're a nice alternative to the Proto HD if you just can't stand the thought of buying Neversummer. If you can find a shop with one, talk to the shop guy and see if he can't talk you into one.|
